Roots and Shoots Everywhere
Words and music by Raffi

From the album Let's Play

Roots and shoots,
roots and shoots
We are the roots and shoots
of a living world
Roots and shoots, everywhere
The hopes and dreams
of a living world
We dig the earth and
we reach for the sky
We root so low and
we shoot so high
We love the birds
and we love the trees
We love the whales
and the chimpanzees
We are the seeds
and we are the buds
Grow through the concrete
grow through the walls
The power of life, the power of love
From the earth below
to the heavens above
Dig dig dig, reach for the sky
We love the earth
and we'll tell you why
