There once was a seed that decided to grow
While others laughed and teased,
But that seed just wouldn’t say “No”,
In itself it truly believed.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

The seed took root and grew real tall
While others laughed and teased,
“You won’t last long, you’ll only fall.”
Yet the seed became a tree.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

Now that tree is fully grown
Now it’s making seeds
Strong enough – it won’t be long
As they grow up into trees.

Chorus:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence.
It took one seed to grow up tall.
It took one seed to have the courage.
One seed that’s all.

Next time that you’re seeking shade
You’ll find it under a tree
Remember that seed and the risk it made
How it grew for you and me.

Chorus Twice:
It took one seed to make a diff’rence
It took one seed to grow up tall
It took one seed to have the courage
One seed that’s all.
