DigiTrad: BRANCHING OUT

BRANCHING OUT
(John Gorka)

When I grow up I want to be a tree.
I want to make my home with the birds and the bees.
And the squirrels, they can count on me.
When I grow up I want to be a tree.

I'll let my joints get stiff, put my feet in the ground,
Take the winters off and settle down,
Keep my clothes till they turn brown,
When I grow up I'm gonna settle down.

CHO: And I'm gonna reach, I'm gonna reach,
I'm gonna reach, reach for the sky.
I'm gonna reach, I'm gonna reach,
I'm gonna reach, till I know why.

When the spring comes by I'm gonna get real green.
If the dogs come by I'm gonna get real mean.
On windy days I'll bend and lean.
When I grow up I'm gonna get real green.

BRIDGE: If I should fall in storm or slumber
Please don't turn me into lumber
I'd rather be a Louisville Slugger swinging for the seats
