Tree Fort

Built to keep all the rain out
And be all hidden
This is my tree fort and All Are Forbidden
Short applause from poplar trees
Congratulations no one sees
On my platform of stolen wood
I’d stay all winter if I could
Tree fort, tree fort
Suspicious of valuables I cannot collect
No locks, no lights, no fence to protect
In fear of intrusions I have to avoid
If I make this too nice, it will be destroyed
Silently sitting all damp with rain
I’ve taken the throne in my domain
There’s nothing to do now, I’ll never learn
If you have to leave, you can’t return
Tree fort, tree fort aw yeah

I’m alone
And not afraid
I dream of life
I saw the stars
This is my house
My little man cave
I feel grown up
Watching, hiding in here

Sounds of spanking, you scream and shout
as the fireman put your tree fort out
Sundown you better take care,
left a candle burning in your backyard lair
Tree fort, tree fort
Tree fort
