(Folk song)

1. The trees are waving to and fro.
So are we, so are we.
Beneath the wild wind bending low.
So we do, as you see.

Oh may we grow like happy trees
In shadow or in sun
To bless the world, to help and please
Till our lifework is done.

2. The trees are pointing to the sky.
So are we, so are we.
They hold their graceful heads up high.
So will we, as you see. Refrain

3. They keep their place by each firm root.
So will we, so will we.
Keep place with firmly planted foot
As you see, as you see. Refrain
