I'm Into Trees
Cannonball Run: The Musical

Dialogue:

Beauty: Are you into trees? Oh, I just love trees. Have you ever heard of Joyce Kilmer?
J.J.: Of course.
Beauty: Well, she wrote a won...
J.J.: He
Beauty: He? He is a she?
J.J.: No, she is a he.
Beauty: OH! Well, HE wrote a wonderful poem about trees. I memorized it. Would you like to hear a little?
J.J.: Absolutely.

Beauty: Here goes: "I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest
Against the earth's sweet flowing breast..."

J.J.: That's really something.
Beauty: You must be a sensitive person. You know what I like best about trees? Is that you can lie underneath them on a moonlit night, with the leaves gently blowing
(Bartender drops large tray of glasses)
Bartender: Sorry.
J.J.: That's ok. What were you saying?
Beauty: Oh, I was telling you what I like best about trees. You'll think it's silly, though.
J.J.: No, I won't.
Beauty: You promise?
J.J.: I promise.

SONG: (During course of song, whenever Beauty says something racy or dirty, loud crash, fight, or Victor comes over to interrupt which edis lyrics for audience but J.J. can still hear)

Beauty:
I'm into people who are into trees.
Know what I like about trees?
You can lie underneath them
in a soft, summer breeze
b****** your brains out for free!

"Poems are written by fools like me
But only God can make trees."

I care about creatures
like wild bulls and such.
Animals don't have a flaw.
Guys who like creatures
they get me real hot.
That's why I don't wear a b**.

"Poems are written by fools like me
But only God can make trees."

I find it a wonder! The world is amazing!
The mountains, the rivers, the land and the sea!
We all are connected and nothing else matters.
It's all so e*****. Do you disagree?

I'm soft and I'm gentle
but not really smart.
You might even think I'm a ditz.
But men tend to listen
when I start to talk.
Even though they just look at my t***.

"Poem's are made by fools like me
But only God can make trees."
Because "Poem's are made by fools like me
But only God can make trees."
