Roots and Wings

From the album Grow It at Home Buy Now

- we've got to keep ourselves in balance if we're going to teach that skill to our kids


ROOTS AND WINGS                 

Cho:  Roots grow down

Into the ground

Wings, they fly up high!

Roots and wings 

Are things we need 

T’help kids get by!


Plants grow roots      

To reach the water   

Way down below  

Strong roots help them

Hang on tight 

When the cold winds blow!



Birds use wings

To leave the nest

When it’s time to fly

It’s scary but

They’ve seen their parents

Sail through the sky!

Chorus & Instrumental Chorus


When grown-ups have

Both roots and wings

We share them with our kids

Let’s get ourselves

In balance then

We’ll all have more to give!

Chorus (2x)
