Rush - The Trees Lyrics

Boston - Surrender to Me Lyrics AC/DC - I Put the Finger on You Lyrics Muse - Blockades Lyrics Imagine Dragons - Curse Lyrics Iggy Pop - 1969 Lyrics Catfish and the Bottlemen - Intermission Lyrics The Hives - Hey Little World Lyrics U2 - The First Time Lyrics
There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
And they're quite convinced they're right
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light
But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade?

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream, "oppression"
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
"The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light"
Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet
And saw
