All Lagos wants for Christmas (apologies Mariah Carey)

Lagos don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing she needs
She don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
She just wants her own trees
More than you could ever know
Make her wish come true oh
All Lagos wants for Christmas are trees

She don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing she needs, and she
Don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
She has no need for stocking
Too much heat’s already in the city
Santa Claus wont make her happy
With a toy on Christmas Day

She just wants trees for her own
More than you could ever know
Make her wish come true
All she wants for Christmas are trees

She won’t ask for much this Christmas
She wish it’d snow, and she
She just wanna keep on waiting
For as many who’d plant trees
She won’t make a list and sent it

To the North Pole for Saint Nick
She’s been awake to hear trees sway

‘Cause she just wants trees right now
For erosion control and shade
For oxygen and protect commuters
Oh, Lagosians, all she wants for Christmas are trees

Not all the lights are shining
Not bright in many places
But the sound of children’s
Laughter Fills the air

And many are complaining
She hears the heat is biting
Lagosians, won’t you bring her
The ones she really needs
Won’t you please plant trees in Lagos
Quickly

She don’t want a lot for Christmas
This is all she’s asking for
She just wanna see trees
Sprouting from every part of the city

She wants her own trees
More than you could ever know
Make her wish come true
Lagosians, all she wants for Christmas are trees
All she wants for Christmas, are trees.
