There was a tree (echo) all in the wood (echo)
The prettiest little tree (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the tree was in a hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around

Now in that tree (echo) there was a nest (echo)
The prettiest little nest (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the nest was in the tree, and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around

Now in that nest (echo) there was an egg (echo)
The prettiest little egg (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the egg was in the nest, and the nest was in the tree,
  and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground
And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around


Now on that egg (echo) there was a bird (echo)
The prettiest little bird (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the bird was on the egg,
  and the egg was in the nest, and the nest was in the tree,
  and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around


Now on that bird (echo) there was a wing, (echo)
The prettiest little wing (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the wing was on the bird
  and the bird was on the egg, and the egg was in the nest
  and the nest was in the tree, and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around


Now on that wing (echo) there was a feather (echo)
The prettiest little feather (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the feather was on the wing, and the wing was on the bird,
  the bird was on the egg, the egg was in the nest
  the nest was in the tree, and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around


Now on that feather (echo) there was a bug (echo)
The prettiest little bug (echo) that you ever did see (echo)
Well the bug was on the feather,
  the feather was on the wing, the wing was on the bird,
  the bird was on the egg, and the egg was in the nest
  the nest was in the tree, and the tree was in the hole,
  and the hole was in the ground

And the green grass grew all around, all around,
The green grass grew all around
