TITLE: The Trees
Lyrics and Chords

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

/ D F# / C#m A / E GA / BmA Bm / ( D A Bm - F# - G - )

   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

   / A B / GD A / : / F# - / G - / 

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, axe, and saw

   ... / G - A - /
