IT’S GOOD FOR YOU AND GOOD FOR ME
© 2014 by Billy Jonas (Bang-A-Bucket Music/BMI)

Papa handed me a saw and pointed to a branch
Up in a sprawling apple tree, I told him that I can't…
"Cuz I don't want to hurt the tree." He told me, “Don't you know…
“When we trim the branches back, it helps the apples grow”

So we sang this song to the tree:

It's good for you, it's good for me (3x)
The pruning of the apple tree
It's good for you… and good for me

Mama always held my baby sister in her arms
She said, “I'm scared she'll stumble, I must shelter her from harm”
One day she'll let her go, she fell; but it was for the best
Sister learned to walk, and Mama's shoulders got a rest

Now they sing the song to each other:

It's good for you, it's good for me (3x)
The pruning of the apple tree
The bruising of the baby's knee
It's good for you… and good for me

It was time for college and I hugged my folks goodbye
We all were so excited, but it made my sister cry
I said, “Although you're gonna miss me, you will smile soon
“When I get my independence, you will get my room”

Now we sing the song to each other:

It's good for you, it's good for me (3x)
The pruning of the apple tree
The bruising of the baby's knee
The stretching of our family
It's good for you… and good for me (2x)
