Laura Nyro – Talk To A Green Tree lyrics

Baby in the cradle
Needs to stay strong
I need some ease before long
And all the world around me
Still in love with war
And I must teach that baby
That love is what life's for
And you may help me
Pretty daddy
But you can never lead me
'cause you don't seem to hear me
Gonna talk to a green tree
Talk to a green tree
(Green tree)
What am I gonna do?
What am I gonna do?
I'm a working woman
With a baby on my back
Won't you see me through?
Wind in the treetops
Flame in the song
Mother I need your wise words
But you died before he was born
And all the world around me
Still in love with war
And I much teach that baby, momma
That love is what life is for
And you have fire
Little child
And we are growing
And I could really fly
With you by the green tree
We'll lie by the green tree
(Green tree)
We're your company
We're your company
I'm a working woman
With a baby on my back
I need some energy
Listen pretty daddy
You can take my place
Childcare and home
Is no disgrace
But eight days a week
May wilt your wild flower
And after you've done it all big daddy
Be ready for the midnight hour
And you, society
You can never lead me
'Cause you don't seem to hear me
Gonna talk to a green tree
Talk to a green tree
(Green tree)
What am I gonna do
To set my spirit free?
I'm a working woman
With a baby on my back
I need some energy
