Brett Dennen Fig Tree Lyrics

Last updated: 06/05/2012 11:00:00 AM

Oh baby won't you come with me
I'll tell you where I'm going
Over the meadow, down by the stream
Under the shade of a fig tree

So won't you come along
Won't you come along
Well, come with me
Underneath the shade
The shade of a fig tree

And it won't take long
It won't take long
'Till you'll be beside me
Shake it mama, shake
Shake me up in my tree
Well, shake me up in my tree

Oh the sunlight streaks across the meadow
Comes speaking through the canopy
The shadow suggests the shape of my interests
Under your fig leaf

So won't you come along
Won't you come along
Well, come with me
Underneath the shade
The shade of a fig tree

And it won't take long
It won't take long
'Till you'll be beside me
Shake it mama, shake
Shake me up in my tree
Shake me up in my tree

Mmm
Alright

So won't you come a long
Won't you come along
Well, come with me
Underneath the shade
The shade of a fig tree

And it won't take long
It won't take long
'Till you'll be beside me, baby
Shake it mama, shake
Shake me up in my tree
Yes, shake me up in my tree

Uprooting's heavy on the tree
And nature has been good to thee
You've been sittin' pretty with your prudence on your paw swingin'
I've been barking up the wrong tree

So won't you come along
Won't you come along
Well, come with me
Underneath the shade
The shade of a fig tree

And it won't, and it won't
And it won't take long
'Till you'll be beside me, baby
Shake it mama shake
Shake me up in my tree
Oh, shake me up in my tree
Shake me up in my tree
