The Yaffling Tree

There’s birds and birds
In the Yaffling Tree
All kinds of words
In the Yaffling Tree
There’s crows and crows
In the Yaffling Tree
It kind of grows
The Yaffling Tree
Its branches spread
The Yaffling Tree
From the hands to the head
Of the Yaffling Tree
Last year is dead
Says the Yaffling Tree
It’s in its bed
Says the Yaffling Tree
So think again
Says the Yaffling Tree
I said again
Says the Yaffling Tree
So count to ten
Says the Yaffling Tree
Amen amen
Says the Yaffling Tree
