Lyrics

This arbor day, please remember
to hug a tree today.
Also, if you would like
you could do something great.
Plant a tree and you can hug it
all your life until your cousin
digs it up and takes it home.
Then it will be his tree then.
Your cousin is an asshole!
He wants to steal your little friend.

This arbor day, please remember
always pee on trees today.
They do like it when you do this.
Plus it gives you reason to drink.
Drink it up all through the night.
Drinking until morning’s light.
Drink and drink and pee some more.
Pee on trees all through the day.
Drink and drink and drink some more.
Pee on trees all through the night.

This arbor day, please remember
your trees are a lovely friend.
As are trees in foreign lands.
Please remember this my friend.
Buy local wood when you can afford it.
Avoid wood if you can’t afford it.
Please remember this my friend
Every tree deserves a home.
Please remember this my friend
You will love breathing their air.

This arbor day, please remember
always hug your lovely trees.
They do like it when you hug them
and when you allocate parks.
Build more parks with lots more trees.
They are good if you do please.
Build more parks, my feisty friend!
With lots of trees for birds and squirrels.
You can breath their lovely air.
This is something that you need.
