A tree, a tree!
He cried with glee,
Can I be up there as tall as that tree?

No! You can't! His father said, you will never be as high as that tree.

A tree, a tree the young man cried!
Can I get up as high as that tree?

"I doubt it." His young wife sighed. "You can never be as high as that tree.

A tree, a tree! Said the bearded man of 43. I want to be as high as that tree.
"No, thats impossible!" the man's neighbor yelled! "You can never be as high as that tree!"

A tree! A tree! The old man said with joy! As he peered down from his pilot's seat.

I remember you.
I remember sunshine on my shoe.
I remember the mustard tasted like glue.

Do you remember that old dogwood tree?
Do you remember the scraped knee?
Do you remember me?

The zebra called out from his cell,
"Please help me! I'm in hell!
These stripes aren't mine! I'm a horse!"

The jailer just laughed and shook her keys.
"Man, they ALL say that.
Even that burglar the spotted cat."

One day a little monkey said to me
"You wanna see me climb that tree?
Or jump around and juggle three lemons?"

I answered, "No. That won't be necessary.
It's entertainment enough this week,
Just to hear a talking monkey speak."
