"The People Tree" as written by and A. Newley L. Bricusse....
Hay,
Wouldn't it be nice to make a people tree.
The likes of you,
The likes of me.
We can do it very easily.
We barely even have to try.
Let a little time go by.
And pretty soon before we know it.
(Soon before we know it)

Suddenly the two of us are one, two, three.
And there we see, our people tree.
Soon the score is up to four or more.
As other little branches grow.
(Other little branches grow)
That's the way it's meant to go.
And there's no way I know to slow it.
(There's no way to slow it)

(What a source of mutual satisfaction when we see the tree bare room)
Evidence beyond dispute of all our mutual attraction.

Nothing is as lovely as a people tree.
(The people tree)
I think that we
(I'd think that we)
Would all agree
(Would all agree)

Of the miracles that God created.
Rated number one.
Would have to be the people tree.

    General CommentIt says these lyrics were "edited by ben_wren", but it doesn't seem to have actually taken my edits! I think the correct lyrics are:

    Wouldn't it be nice to make a people tree
    The likes of you, the likes of me
    We can do it very easily; we barely even have to try
    Let a little time go by and pretty soon before we know it...

    Suddenly the two of us are one, two, three
    And there we see our people tree
    Soon the score is up to four or more as other little branches grow
    That's the way it's meant to go and there's no way I know to slow it

    What a source of mutual satisfaction
    When we see the tree bear fruit
    Evidence beyond dispute of our mutual attraction

    Nothing is as lovely as a people tree
    I think that we would all agree:
    Of the miracles that god created, rated number one would have to be the people tree

    What a source of mutual satisfaction
    When we see the tree bear fruit
    Evidence beyond dispute of our mutual attraction

    Nothing is as lovely as a people tree
    I think that we would all agree:
    Of the miracles that god created, rated number one would have to be the people tree
