TREES OF TANGERINES

Eat of the fruit of the tree of tangerines
Think of the flowers that grow so high
Think of the flowers that sigh and sigh
Think of the flowers that pass you by and cry

Eat of the leaves of the trees of tangerines
Make up your mind -- do you want to stay
Make up your mind -- do you play and play
Make up your mind where you'll sleep today and say

Swallow the sap of the leaves of tangerines
Look at the butterflies in the air
Look at the butterflies stare and stare
Look at the butterflies -- d'you wear your hair
Tangled in the seeds of the trees of tangerines
