Yo i wonder if the tree complain;
when chemtrails pour acid rain

Yo i wonder if the tree complain;
when someone piss on em but he cant move

Yo i wonder if the tree complain;
when he produces for free, but somone keep selling all his damn fruit

Yo i wonder if the tree weeps;
when they chop down his kinfolk,as trucks take em down the street

Yo i wonder if the tree see's;
how he provides shelter for everybird, yet humans leave other humans to sleep on the streets

Yo i wonder if the tree pains;
when a young couple carves their future ex's name

Yo i wonder if the tree appreciates ;
being chopped down to see how old he is, when would've lived well past three thousand n fourty-six

Yo i wonder if the tree misses;
generations that use to gather around him while passing down oral traditions

Yo i wonder if the tree looks;
at the human race wondering why they're the only species that need to learn how to be themselves through a book, using limbs for paper

Yo i wonder if the tree dances;
as he wavers in the storm because thats the only time pollution cant do any harm

Yo i wonder if the tree laughs;
when we complain about our lives

Yo i wonder if the tree hears;
the screams of people cheering for their favorite teams

Yo i wonder if the tree could pack up his leaves and leave would he?
being that no one is greatful for the reason why they breathe

Oh How i really wonder?
if he would stay just for the sake of that natty dread tree hugger
