Back in the days of the dinosaur
The willow stood proud like the sycamore
The apes got smart and learned how to talk
And eat with a knife and a spoon and a fork
They moved into houses that turned into towns
And invented devices to blow them all down
That's why the willow weeps
That's why the willow weeps
If you've ever wondered the reason why
The willow hangs it's head to cry
Now you know why the willow weeps

Now the corn don't grow where the rain don't fall
Then you hear those hungry children bawl
But apes don't hear, they're playing games
Climbing mountains built out of grain
And the newspapers don't even number the dead
They're counting the Hollywood stars instead
That's why the willow weeps
That's why the willow weeps
If you've ever wondered the reason why
The willow hangs it's head to cry
Now you know why the willow weeps

If you've ever wondered the reason why
The willow hangs it's head to cry
Now you know why the willow weeps
Now you know why the willow weeps
