Lyrics for the "One Seed" Song

One Seed
Words and music by Rosemary Phillips
© Rosemary Phillips 2002 SOCAN

Guitar chords: C Am F G C Am F / F C F C F C G C

There once was a seed that decided to grow
While others laughed and teased,
But that seed just wouldn’t say “No”,
In itself it truly believed.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

The seed took root and grew real tall
While others laughed and teased,
“You won’t last long, you’ll only fall.”
Yet the seed became a tree.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

Now that tree is fully grown
Now it’s making seeds
Strong enough – it won’t be long
As they grow up into trees.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

Next time that you’re seeking shade
You’ll find it under a tree
Remember that seed and the risk it made
How it grew for you and me.

Chorus Twice:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence
It took one seed to grow up tall
It took one seed to have the courage
One seed that’s all.


Lyrics with Actions for the "One Seed" Song

One Seed
Words and music and actions by Rosemary Phillips
© Rosemary Phillips 2002 SOCAN

There once was a seed that decided to grow
Hold hands in front, index finger and thumbs touching, making a circle
While others laughed and teased,
Wave hands beside the head and move shoulders and head side to side making fun
But that seed just wouldn’t say “No”,
Hold hands, index finger and thumbs touching, making a circle, and shake head
In itself it truly believed.
Point both hands towards chest (self)

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
One index finger (right or left hand) point up and reaching in front
It took one seed...
One index finger (right or left hand) point up and reaching in front
to grow up tall.
Reach up both arms above head and point to the sky
It took one seed...
One index finger (right or left hand) point up and reaching in front
to have the courage.
Both arms up, fists made and muscle-man motion
One seed that’s all.
One index finger (right or left hand) point up and reaching in front

The seed took root...
Point down with both hands to the ground
and grew real tall...
Reach up with both hands to the sky
While others laughed and teased,
Wave hands beside the head and move shoulders and head side to side making fun
“You won’t last long, you’ll only fall.”
Right arm (or left) falling down
Yet the seed became a tree.
Arms to the side rising up to the sky

Chorus:(See above)

Now that tree is fully grown...
Arms to the side rising up to the sky and stretching
Now it’s making seeds...
Hands wiggling fingers like seeds falling
Strong enough – it won’t be long...
Both arms raised, fists made and muscle-man motion
As they grow up into trees.
Hands to side motioning trees growing up tall

Chorus: (See above)

Next time that you’re seeking shade...
Reach up arm over head imaging it's a branch of a tree
You’ll find it under a tree...
Remember that seed and the risk it made...
Hold hands in front, index finger and thumbs touching making a circle
How it grew for you and me.
Point to someone then point to yourself

Chorus Twice: (See above)
