Let’s Plant a Tree for Tu B’Shvat – Debbie Friedman

Chorus:   Trees are blowing in the wind, they’re blowing

                Trees are blowing in the wind (whoooshhh!)

                Trees are blowing in the wind, they’re blowing

                Trees are blowing in the wind (whoosh!)

 

Let’s dig a hole, let’s dig a hole and plant a seed

Let’s water it, oh let’s water it ‘cause it is Tu B’Shvat (chorus)

 

Look at the leaves, look at the leaves, they’re growing now

Let’s water them, oh let’s water them ‘cause it is Tu B’Shvat (chorus)

 

Look at the tree, the tree is so much taller now

Let’s water it, oh let’s water it ‘cause it is Tu B’Shvat (chorus)

 

Just look at me, just look at me, I’m taller now

Don’t water me, please don’t water me, ‘cause it is Tu B’Shvat.

Green Grass Grew all Around

There was a hole (there was a hole)  

In the middle of the ground (in the middle of the ground)

The prettiest hole (the prettiest hole)

That you ever did see (that you ever did see)

Oh, the hole in the ground

 

CHORUS:   And the green grass grew all around, all around

And the green grass grew all around.

 

And in that hole (echo) there was a tree (echo) the prettiest tree (echo)

That you ever did see.   Oh the tree in the hole and the hole in the ground

And in that tree (echo) there was a branch (echo) the prettiest branch (echo) that you ever did see.  Oh the branch on the tree and the tree in the hole and the hole in the ground.   CHORUS

It’s Tu B’Shvat Time – (tune of “You are my Sunshine”)

It’s Tu B’Shvat time, It’s Tu B’Shvat time

We’ll plant a tree and watch it grow.

With a little water and lots of sunshine.

Our tree will grow and grow.

 

We’ll plant an apple tree and an orange tree

And we will watch them grow and grow

With a little water and lots of sunshine

Our trees will grow and grow.

Eretz zavat chalav– chalav u-d’vash.
Eretz zavat chalav, zavat chalav u-d’vash
Eretz zavat chalav, zavat chalav u-d’vash.
