Lyrics:

See the tree, how large it’s grown
However pal it hasn’t been too lengthy
It wasn’t large
I laughed at her and she or he received mad,
The primary day that she planted it
Was only a twig
Then the primary snow got here and she or he ran out
To brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Got here runnin’ in all excited,
Slipped and nearly damage herself
And I laughed until I cried

She was at all times younger at coronary heart,
Kinda dumb and kinda good
And I cherished her so
And I shocked her with a pet
Stored me up all Christmas Eve two years in the past
And it could certain embarrass her
After I got here in from workin’ late
‘Trigger I’d know
That she’d been sittin’ there and cryin’
Over some unhappy and foolish late, late present

And honey, I miss you and I’m bein’ good
And I’d like to be with you if solely I might

She wrecked the automotive and she or he was unhappy
And so afraid that I’d be mad
However what the heck
Although I pretended onerous to be
Guess you can say she noticed by me
And hugged my neck
I got here dwelling unexpectedly
And caught her cryin’ needlessly
In the course of a day
And it was within the early spring
When flowers bloom and robins sing
She went away

And honey, I miss you and I’m bein’ good
And I’d like to be with you if solely I might

In the future whereas I used to be not at dwelling
Whereas she was there and on their own
The angels got here
Now all I’ve is recollections of honey
And I get up nights and name her identify
Now my life’s an empty stage
The place honey lived and honey performed
And love grew up
And a small cloud passes overhead
And cries down on the flower mattress
That honey cherished

And see the tree how large it’s grown
However pal it hasn’t been too lengthy
It wasn’t large
And I laughed at her and she or he received mad
The primary day that she planted it,
Was only a twig
