Did you ever wonder what made the trees grow;
I’ll tell the secret if you’d like to know.
Deep in the forest, all about the trees
Are tiny little dark men called the Tuckonies.
And ho, ho, ho, they make the gum trees grow.
They sing their magic tree song, ho, ho, ho.
Grow, grow, little tree grow,
Lift up your branches high in the blue.
Grow, grow, little tree bless’d,
Shelter the birdlings high in the nest.
Grow, grow, grow, grow.
Ever, ever upward grow, grow.
