lyrics

TWO TUI
There are two Tui singing in the tree outside my window
As I rise to the sun and their song hits a crescendo
It makes me know in my soul everything's gonna be alright
Make me feel like a king when I hear them sing so bright.

There are two Tui singing in the Kowhai tree outside
Let their song take my soul to a sweet place to reside
Where my body is the tree and the birds sitting on my shoulder
One is so young and the other seems so much older

Just to hear them sing
Is a beautiful thing
And I'm off my feet
It never felt so sweet

Sweet as clover
If you and your crew grab a couple of brews and cruise over
Because it's almost noon
I'll be irie soon
The Man can wait
It'll be sweet as mate
Sweet as a nut.

There are two tui singing their song outside my door
And just for a minute no-one could ever want more
Because my heart feels like there's no room left inside
Only then can your effort truly benefit all mankind

Just to hear them sing
Is a beautiful thing
And I'm off my feet
It never felt so sweet
Sweet as clover
If you and your crew grab a couple of brews and cruise over.

Because it's almost noon
We'll be irie soon
The Man can wait
It'll be sweet as mate
Sweet as honey
It's so sweet not to think about money
It's so sweet, sweet as your Nana
It's so sweet as your Nana's nuts.
