Soy un Arbol 02:16
Soy un árbol y alto, alto estoy con mis hojas temblando en el viento Soy un árbol moviendo en la brias otoñal Al viento doy una voz. Soy un árbol y alto, alto estoy Con mis ramas que tan largas están Y escucho las aves que me cantan a mí Al ave doy un hogar Al vento doy una voz Soy un árbol y alto, alto estoy Con mis nueces que crecen en mis ramas Y en mi tronco se sube un suave animal A la ardilla doy de comer Al ave doy un hogar Al vento doy una voz Soy un árbol y alto, alto estoy Con mis hojas que tan verdes están Soy un árbol y cuando está fuete, fuerte el sol Yo doy la sombra a la tierra A la ardilla doy de comer Al ave doy un hogar Al vento doy una voz Toda mi sombra a la gente quiero dar Toda mi sombra a la gente quiero dar. (rep.)
