Tu B’shevat is around the corner, folks, get your fruit plates in line…

This simple song is a favorite of preschoolers who enjoy all the action lyrics — clapping, stomping, planting, growing, swaying, etc. The song is part of the “Gan Shirim (A Garden of Songs”) double-CD written and produced by Carol Boyd Leon and published by KTAV Publishing House in 2004.

Tu, Tu, Tu B’shevat,

Tu B’shevat is on its way.

Clap, clap, clap our hands,

It’s a happy holiday.

Stamp, stamp, stamp our feet,

Now’s the time to sing and play

‘Cause Tu B’shevat’s a birthday,

The birthday of the trees.

Plant, plant, plant a seed,

Plant a seed right in the ground.

Rain, rain, rain will fall,

Raindrops falling all around.

Sun, sun, sun will shine,

Shining brightly in the sky

To help the trees grow up so high,

Help them grow so high.

Grow, grow, start to grow

Like the trees we see outside.

Stretch, stretch, stretch up high,

Branches reaching very wide.

Sway, sway side to side,

Leaves are dancing in the breeze

To celebrate a birthday,

The birthday of the trees.
