Track Name: The Story Tree
Chorus
Come sit under the Story Tree
So many fruits there for you and for me
Come sit under the Story Tree
So many stories there for you and for me

Verse 1
Hear tales of magic and tales of adventure
Stories of wisdom and stories of treasure
Stories to make you sit still and stare
Stories to give you a bit of a scare

Chorus

Verse 2
Meet Sultans and pirates, peasants and Queens
Mermaids, giants and talking trees
Witches and warlocks and mythical creatures
Serpents, frogs, lions and fleas

Chorus
Track Name: Gartan (Garden) Mother’s Lullaby
Sleep O babe, for the red bee hums the silent twilight's fall,
Ayvan from the grey rock comes, to wrap the world in thrall.
A LYAN-uh-van O my child, my joy, my love my heart's desire,
The crickets sing you lullaby, beside the dying fire.

Dusk is drawn and
The Green man adorns the hills with rings of fog,
SHEE-vra sails his boat till morn, upon the Starry Bog.
A LYAN-uh-van O, the paly moon hath brimmed her cusp in dew,
And weeps to hear the sad sleep-tune, I sing O love to you.

Faintly sweet doth the chapel bell, ring o'er the valley dim,
Sanctuary peasant voices swell, in fragrant evening hymn.
A LYAN-uh-van O, the low bell rings, my little lamb to rest,
And angel- dreams till morning sings, its music in your breast.
