Tree Hugger - Antsy Pants & Kimya Dawson

Ototo-san was listening to this song in the car while we were heading for church. It's a song from the Juno OST. I immediately found the song catchy and cute at the same time. You can even come up with you own version of the MV, it is up to your imagination.

There are a couple of MV versions made by fans, here's two of the better ones:



This is very well drawn and detailed, although I wished it had some colour to bring it to life.



This version seemed more attractive because it had colour, but I still prefer the video intepretation of the first one.

Here's the lyrics. Listen and be hooked!


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 desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all

Appreciate the effort.


Et le chacalot a dit:
"Je voudrais être un yéti
Pour voler dans la nuit

Et m'envoler loin d'ici"

Mais le yéti a dit:
"Je veux être un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir sauter 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,

"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."


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 desert,
So dry and lonely,
That the creatures all

Appreciate the effort.
