Water for the Flowers

Written By: Sharon O’Neil

There was a tree I played under,
And I watched it grow in wonder
It grew new leaves every spring,
And underneath those leaves I swing
The man from the council chopped it down,
Said, "Trees make mighty fine paper"
Next thing I know noisy machines
Are building a new skyscraper

I sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
It's better than puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever

There is so much to discover
About the world and one another
Plants and animals and birds
We've never seen and never heard
They are part of a precious garden,
We must tend it like our own
So the plants are left unharmed by man,
The creatures free to roam

I sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
It's better than puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever

We sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
That's better than trash and chemicals
Floating in the sea,
The fish can't eat,
The plants can't breathe
Puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever
Forever

I sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
It's better than puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever

Let's sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
It's better than trash and chemicals
Floating in the sea
The fish can't eat,
The plants can't breathe
Puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever
Forever

I sing water for the flowers,
Flowers for the bees
Space on earth for the beautiful trees,
It's better than puttin' up a building,
Blocking out the sun
Tearing down things
God made to last forever
