I remember when they chopped my down
And placed me in a truck,
They told me I'd be happy
And I was definitely in luck.

I was told I'd been chosen
To give some girls and boys,
A very Happy christmas,
And on my branches would be toys.

I was to have lights of red
Green and yellow too,
Lots of sparkling tinsel
With ornaments of blue.

I felt quite excited
Of the job I was to do,
They placed me in a window
So my bright lights would shine through.

On the very top of me
They placed a shining star,
I felt I must look beautiful
Standing straight, and standing tall.

For days and days  they loved me
As they brought their friends to see,
Every day I heard from them,
We love you Christmas tree.

I knew when I was very young
I was planted for a reason,
I knew I would be picked someday
Just for this festive season.

The children do not notice me
My job for them is done,
I over hear them saying
Christmas sure was fun.

They leave me in the darkness now
I'm no more a treat,
Tomorrow I heard them say
They will toss me on the street.

My days upon this earth are done
But with sun, and rain you see,
In the forest where I lived
There grows another tree.

And next year when you chop it down
I hope that you will see,
To plant another in it's place
