lyrics

In the world before the dinosaurs
Centimeters tall they stand
By the rivers, lakes and ocean shores
Plants
The early plants
Later on, before the dinosaurs
Growing taller by degrees
With their woody stems now for support
Trees
The early trees
Here come the trees
They come to take over the world
They come in peace
Here come the trees

Later still before the dinosaurs
Spreading out with greater speed
Faster than they ever could with spores
Seeds
The world’s first seeds
Here come the trees
They come to take over the world
They come in peace
Here come the trees

Since their appearance on Earth over 390 million years ago
Trees have evolved and endured through dramatic climate changes
And mass extinctions
Surviving, thriving and spreading across
The mighty supercontinent Pangea
They colonized the land with great forests
Still some 100 million years
Before the appearance of the dinosaurs

In the world before the dinosaurs
Forming forests, fanning out
The lycopods, calamites, conifers
Now
Their time is now
Here come the trees
They come to take over the world
Here come the trees
Across the supercontinent
Nothing’s stopping them now
Here come the trees
They come to take over the world
They come in peace
Here come the trees
