"The People Tree [Ain't It Funny album version]" 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 "submitted by ben_wren", but these aren't the lyrics I submitted! I think the correct lyrics (as on the Ain't It Funny album) 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:

    The world is made of music
    Never ending symphonies of sound surround us
    Miracles of melody abound around us too
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    Listen to the rhythm of the storm in summer
    Hear the mellow melody when church bells chime
    Isn't that as magical as once upon a time
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    Ding dong, sing a song of spring and summer
    Spring song, summer song and entre nous
    I love music and I know that you do too
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    The world's a maze of music
    Everything contributes to the rare concerto
    Elephants and butterflies have their concerto too
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    Listen to the music of a lonely seashore
    Hear the sad cacophony of seagulls' songs
    Nature has an orchestra where every sound belongs
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    Ding dong, sing a song of spring and summer
    Spring song, summer song and entre nous
    I love music and I know that you do too
    It's a musical world
    Such a beautiful world

    Ding dong, sing a song of spring and summer
    Spring song, summer song and entre nous
    I love music and I know that you do too
    It's a musical world
    I love music and I know that you do too
    It's a musical world
