Lyrics DON'T BE THE LEAF
IF YOU CAN BE THE TREE,
DON'T BE THE RAINDROP
IF YOU CAN BE THE SEA.
'CAUSE A LEAF MAY FALL,
BUT THE TREE REMAINS.
IT MAY NEVER RAIN AT ALL,
BUT THE SEA REMAINS
BETTER TO BE THE TREE
AND THE SEA.
SEE?
DON'T BE A CLOUD
IF YOU CAN BE THE SKY,
DON'T BE A FEATHER,
BE A BIRD
AND FLY.
CLOUDS ROLL BY,
BUT THE SKY ROLLS ON
AND A BIRD CAN FLY
WITH A FEATHER GONE,
BE THE BIRD
AND THE SKY
AND THE TREE
AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA,
DON'T BE ANYTHING LESS
THAN EVERYTHING YOU CAN BE!

DON'T BE THE SAIL
IF YOU CAN BE THE BOAT.
DON'T BE THE LINING
IF YOU CAN BE THE COAT.
IT MAY LOSE ITS SAIL,
BUT A BOAT WILL FLOAT,
AND A COAT
WITHOUT A LINING
IS STILL A COAT.
BETTER TO BE THE BOAT
AND THE COAT.
QUOTE!
DON'T BE THE STICK
IF YOU CAN BE THE DRUM,
DON'T BE THE SUGAR,
BE THE PLUM,
BY GUM.
YOU CAN BREAK A STICK
BUT THE DRUM WILL BEAT.
WITHOUT A SUGAR COAT,
PLUMS'RE GOOD TO EAT.
BETTER TO BE THE DRUM
AND THE PLUM
AND THE COAT
AND THE BIRD
AND THE SKY
AND THE TREE
AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
DON'T BE ANYTHING LESS
THAN EVERYTHING YOU CAN BE!

DON'T BE THE MOO
IF YOU CAN BE THE COW.
DON'T BE THE FURROW,
IF YOU CAN BE THE PLOW.
'CAUSE YOU CAN'T GET MILK
FROM A MOO NO WAY,
AND THE FURROW'S IN A RUT,
BUT THE PLOW'S OKAY,
BETTER TO BE THE COW
AND THE PLOW!
NOW,
DON'T BE THE STING
IF YOU CAN BE THE BEE,
DON'T BE A TWO
IF YOU CAN BE A THREE.
'CAUSE A STING
CAN'T MAKE YOU A HONEYBUN,
TAKE TWO FROM THREE
AND YOU STILL GOT ONE.
BETTER TO BE THE THREE
AND A BEE
AND A COW
AND A PLOW
AND A DRUM
AND A PLUM
AND A COAT,
BOAT,
BIRD,
SKY,
TREE
AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA.
DON'T BE ANYTHING LESS
THAN EVERYTHING YOU CAN BE!

DON'T BE THE STRING
IF YOU CAN BE THE KITE.
DON'T BE THE DARKNESS,
IF YOU CAN BE THE LIGHT.
THO' YOU LOSE ITS STRING
YOU CAN FLY A KITE,
BUT WOULD ANYBODY HERE
FLY A KITE AT NIGHT?
BETTER TO BE THE KITE
AND THE LIGHT.
RIGHT!
DON'T BE THE TAIL
IF YOU CAN BE THE DOG,
DON'T BE THE BUMP
IF YOU CAN BE THE LOG.
HE CAN WAG HIS TAIL,
BUT IT CAN'T WAG HE,
A BUMP WITHOUT A LOG
ISN'T MUCH TO BE.
BETTER TO BE THE DOG
AND THE LOG
AND THE KITE
AND THE LIGHT
AND THE THREE
AND A BEE
AND A COW
AND A PLOW
AND A DRUM
AND A PLUM
AND A COAT
AND A BOAT
AND A BIRD
AND THE SKY
AND A TREE
AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA!
DON'T BE ANYTHING LESS
THAN EVERYTHING YOU CAN BE!
