I love you, you love me, we love under the Hum-Gum Tree
Momma come, daddy say “where have you two been today?”
“We’ve been here, we’ve been there, we’ve been nearly everywhere!
Doesn’t matter what we’ve done, ‘cause we’ve had a lot of fun!”
Lying on a long, grass lawn
watching nature being born.
Rolling merrily in the hay
wondering what games to play…
Dum-dum then come with me
To my den in the Hum-Gum Tree
Dum-dum lots to see
In my den in the Hum-Gum Tree!
Children, children what you do
What will ever become of you?
Tho I’ve stories for your good
Never go up in the wood!
“We don’t care! we don’t care! If we want to we’ll go there!
Surely we are old enough to know all about that stuff!”
You can’t stop us growing old!
Practising what we’ve been told!
And the things that we find out
In the end we’ll know about….
