"Tree" as written by and Stevie Wonder....
Mama, Mama, I have fell
Slipped into the wishing well
Paid my price, I'm now in hell
Bent your rope; it seems that I've fallen

Look at the stars that cover day
All the light has turned to grey
I'd better stop or lose my way
Tuck me in and read a story

Seen the white man's every vine
Death and what we leave behind
It's a life of the daily grind
Forget what all our hopes and dreams are

Papa, Papa, please help me
I have swam too far to sea
The water's deep, the waves are high
Hold out your arms, I think that I'm drowning

I have climbed on the highest limb
Looked at what's above, within
Separated good from sin
Seems I'm on the last tree standing

Growing, sleeping, eat, and die
All the while I wonder why
When we go will someone cry?
Remember us when we're six feet under?

Rest your hand on my aching head
Have this feeling the limb is dead
Is it something I am or something I said?
Get in the black car, come and collect me

Mama, Mama, I have fell
Slipped into the wishing well
Paid my price, I'm now in hell
Bent your rope; it seems that I've fallen

I have climbed on the highest limb
Looked at what's above, within
Separated good from sin
Seems I'm on the last tree standing

The last tree standing
The last tree standing
The last tree standing
