  • I'm the last leaf on the tree
    The autumn took the rest
    But they won't take me
    I'm the last leaf on the tree

    When the autumn wind blows
    They're already gone
    They flutter to the ground
    'Cause they can't hang on
    There's nothing in the world
    That I ain't seen
    I greet all the new ones that are coming in green

    I'm the last leaf on the tree
    The autumn took the rest but they wont take me
    I'm the last leaf on the tree

    They say I got staying power
    Here on the tree
    But I've been here since Eisenhower
    And I've out lived even he

    I'm the last leaf on the tree
    The autumn took the rest but they won't take me
    I'm the last leaf on the tree

    I fight off the snow
    I fight off the hail
    Nothing makes me go
    I'm like some vestigial tail
    I'll be here through eternity
    If you want to know how long
    If they cut down this tree
    I'll show up in a song

    I'm the last leaf on the tree
    The autumn took the rest but they won't take me
    I'm the last leaf on the tree
    I'm the last leaf on the tree
    I'm the last leaf on the tree Writer/s: Kathleen Brennan, Thomas Alan Waits
