Raccoony's favorite song
Listen to Tree Hugger
to hear why Raccoony likes it.
Raccoony listened to Radio IO on the computer. She liked Molly Jameson who hosts "Acoustic Cafe". One night Molly played the Tree Hugger song by Kimya Dawson and Antsy Pants. "Peep! Peep!" she said excitedly. "That's my new favorite song!" Verne had to admit that it was cute. And it was about cactus, too.
And the rattlesnake said "I wish I had hands
So I could hug you like a man"

And then the cactus said "but 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"
TREE HUGGER by Kimya Dawson and Antsy Pants

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 deserts so dry and lonely
That the creatures all appreciate the effort

(French part)
"Et le jackalope a dit
Je voudrais ętre un yeti
Pour voler dans la nuit
Et m'en aller loin d'ici
Mais le yeti a dit
Je voudrais ętre un monstre marin
Pour pouvoir rentrer dans la mer
De tous les requins."
and the jackalope said I would like to be a yeti to fly in the night


And the rattlesnake said "I wish I had hands
So I could hug you like a man"
And then the cactus said "but 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"
Till 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 the 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 deserts so dry and lonely
That the creatures all appreciate the effort
Cat thoughts
"That's a happy song"
Raccoony thought to her cat self. "Why can't more songs be happy like that one?"

Raccoony often had deep thoughts like these while she was on the pooper.
