One day I decided to do something good for the environment
I decided to plant a tree
But the neighbors did not agree with me
About the tree
No, they didn’t agree with me
About the tree
And this is what they said to me
About the tree

If you love me, you’ll kill that tree
If you love me, said the neighbors to me

One day it began to rain
And things got wet
Now, I will bet that your neighbors aren’t witches like mine
And as I walked home in the rain
I found proof that they are insane
Yes, they are insane witches when it rains

Jeez, I’d better get inside before I melt
Jeez, I’d better get inside before I melt

So I live next door to two crazy old ladies
They’re, like, 500 year old twins
And they’re from Italy
And they were banned during the potato famine
400 years ago
‘Cause they used their magic to steal all the potatoes from the peasants
And exploited the working class

If you love me, you’ll kill that tree
If you love me, said the neighbors to me

If you love me, you’ll kill that tree
If you love me, said the neighbors to me
