you are the seed

The Seed

What you plant is what you grow.
The old saying says ‘ what you reap is what you sow’ . This song turns it around in a way that makes it more accessible to children.

A great way to get young minds thinking about how their words and actions affect the world and the people they encounter.

The Seed
Words and music by Glyn Lehmann

Verse 1
There’s a saying that you might know
What you reap is what you sow
Turn it around and so it goes
What you plant is what you grow
Mm (hum)

Chorus
What you plant is what you grow
You won’t get cherries from an apple tree
It’s so plain for all to see
What you plant is what you grow
What you plant is what you grow
So take care what seed you sow
Cos what you plant is what you grow

Verse 2
A seed of kindness and friendship sown
Soon takes root and finds a home
Into the light now it has grown
What you plant is what you grow
Mm

Bridge
Meanness is a feral seed
Kept unchecked a choking weed
Shuts out the light from those in need
What you plant is what you grow
Mm

Chorus
What you plant is what you grow
You won’t get cherries from an apple tree
It’s so plain for all to see
What you plant is what you grow
What you plant is what you grow
So take care what seed you sow
Cos what you plant is what you grow

Grow, grow
What you plant is what you grow

A song for ages 7-13 to promote kindness and friendship. ]]>
