See the tree, how big it´s grown, but friend, then it hasn´t been too long, it wasn´t big I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted it was just a twig Then the first snow came and she ran out to brush the snow away, so it wouldn´t die Came runnin´ in all excited, slipped and almost hurt herself, I laughed 'till I cried She was always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved her so I surprised her with a puppy, kept me up all Christmas Eve, two years ago And it would sure embarrass her when I came home from working late ´cause I would know That she´d been sittin´ there and cryin´ over some sad and silly late, late show And honey, I miss you and I´m bein´ good And I´d love to be with you, if only I could She wrecked the car and she was sad, and so afraid that I´d be mad, but what the heck Though I pretended hard to be, guess you could say she saw through me and hugged my neck I came home unexpectedly and found her crying needlessly in the middle of a day And it was in the early Spring, when flowers bloom and Robins sing, she went away And honey, I miss you and I´m bein´ good And I´d love to be with you, if only I could Yes, one day, while I wasn't home, while she was there and all alone, the angels came Now all I have is memories of Honey, and I wake up nights and call her name Now my life´s an empty stage, where Honey lived, and Honey played, and love grew up A small cloud passes overhead and cries down in the flower bed that Honey loved And see the tree, how big it´s grown But friend, it hasn´t been too long, it wasn´t big. I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted it was just a twig......FADE (Contributed by Ferda Dolunay - April 2005) ********** Female version as recorded by PATTI PAGE: See the tree how big it's grown, but then it hasn't been too long, it wasn't big You laughed at me and I got mad the first day that I planted it 'twas just a twig Then the first snow came and I ran out to brush the snow away so it wouldn't die Came runnin' in all excited, slipped and almost hurt myself and you laughed till you cried Yes, you were always young at heart, kinda dumb and kinda smart and I loved you so You surprised me with a puppy, kept me up all Christmas Eve two years ago And it would sure embarrass me when you came home from workin' late 'cause you would know That I'd been sittin' there and cryin' over some sad and silly late late show And Honey, I miss you and I'm bein' good And I'd love to be with you if only I could I wrecked the car and I was sad and so afraid that you'd be mad, but what the heck All afternoon you stormed around, but I knew how to cool you down, I hugged your neck You came home unexpectedly and caught me cryin' needlessly in the middle of the day And it was in the early spring, when flowers bloom and robins sing, I went away And Honey, I miss you, too and I'm being good And I'd love to be with you, oh, if only I could One day when you were not at home, while I was there and all alone, the angels came Guess you thought it strange of me to leave the way I did that day, it was a shame But now your life has just begun and even though you miss me, Hon, you must go on And when a small cloud passes overhead and cries down on the flower bed You know you're not alone Yes, see the tree how big it's grown, but then it hasn't been too long, it wasn't big You laughed at me and I got mad the first day that I planted it 'twas just a twig Oh, see the tree how big it's grown..........FADE (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2010)
