    The seed you sow
    is the seed you know
    Actions speak louder
    than words.

    It's not what you say
    But what you due
    Is What I see in you

    The seed you sow
    continues to grow
    you cannot unplant a tree.

    You can't dig it up
    But;hey, guess what
    Your roots are what I see

    My reactions to you,
    Your reaction to me
    Are bassed on what we see

    So don't say I m wrong
    When I sing your song
    and sing it better
    than you.
