The Cactus' Offering of Love to the Desert

Lyrics are from Kimya Dawson and Antsy Pants — "Tree Hugger" on the Juno Soundtrack. It was just too fitting to pass up the opportunity.

The flower said "I wish I was a tree"
The tree said "I wish I could be a different kind of tree"
The cat wished that it was a bee
The turtle wished that it could fly really high into the sky
Over rooftops and then dive deep into the sea

And in the sea there is a fish
A fish that has a secret wish
A wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it

And in the sea there is a fish
A fish that has a secret wish
A wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it

And the flower would be its offering of love
To the desert and the deserts so dry and lonely
That the creatures all appreciate the effort

Et le jackalope a dit
Je voudrais être un yeti
Pour voler dans la nuit
Et m'en aller loin d'ici
Mais le yeti a dit
Je voudrais être un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir rentrer dans la mer
De tous les requins

And the rattlesnake said "I wish I had hands
So I could hug you like a man"
And then the cactus said "but don't you understand?
My skin is covered with sharp spikes
That'll stab you like a thousand knives
A hug would be nice but hug my flower with your eyes"

Till the flower said "I wish I was a tree"
The tree said "I wish I could be a different kind of tree"
The cat wished that it was a bee
The turtle wished that it could fly really high into the sky
Over the rooftops and then dive deep into the sea

And in the sea there is a fish
A fish that has a secret wish
A wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it
And in the sea there is a fish
A fish that has a secret wish
A wish to be a big cactus with a pink flower on it

And the flower would be its offering of love to the desert
And the deserts so dry and lonely
That the creatures all appreciate the effort
