Trees on the mountains, trees on the hills
Some are tall, others are short
Help the sick, even the potter
Keep the earth from
Trees on land, trees around
Provide us coffee as well as tea
Even fruits and veggies
Serve as home for birds
Save the tree and let it grow
Don’t cut trees but plant
From the river banks along the shore
Life on earth will trees restore.

A better generation:
Students are the pillars of
Hope of a better generation
Future of the country
depends on them
They are the ones to keep
the country’s name.
Students have to work hard
For the country’s safety
Students have to be hard working and good
So that the country’s people can eat food.
Students should be taken good care of
And good feelings should be shared
Students are the future of nation
They are the source of a better generation.

Life is like water, let it flow
Life is like time, don’t
let it go.
It is like a diamond,
let it glow
It is very precious,
everyone should know.
Life is in plants, animals and human beings
They are punished if they do bad things.
So we know that life is not
God has given us life for knowledge.
