The Money Tree (Children)

Rating: 4.7

And people say that money ain't really grown on trees some also say that honey is not made by the bees. But I do know that money grows only in the night I'll get up for my honey and watch the pretty sight of dollar bills bright green all fluttering in the breeze I am so very keen that I climb up and seize a bucket full of dollars to take home to invest when my sweet honey hollers 'Please pick, for me, the rest! '
