Let it Grow is a song sung in The Lorax (film).

Lyrics

Crowd song

Cy: You don't know me, but my name's Cy.

I'm just the O'Hare delivery guy.

But it seems like trees might be worth a try.

So I say, Let it grow.

Dan: My name is Dan.

Rose: And my name's Rose.

(together) Our son Wesley kind of glows.

And that's not good, so we suppose, we should let it grow.

Mrs. Wiggins: Let it grow, let it grow.

(crowd joins in) You can't reap what you don't sow.

Plant a seed inside the Earth, Just one way to know it's worth.

Let's celebrate the world's Rebirth, We say Let it Grow!

Marie: My name's Marie and I am 3!

I would really like to see a tree.

La la la la la la la lee, I say let it grow.

Norma: I'm Grammy Norma, I'm old and I've got grey hair.

But I remember when trees were everywhere!

And no one had to pay for air, so I say, Let It Grow!

Everyone: Let It Grow, Let It Grow, like it did so long ago.

It is just one tiny seed, but it's all we really need.

It's time to change the life we lead, time to Let It Grow.

O'Hare: My name's O'Hare, I'm one of you. I live here in Thneedville too.

The things you say just might be true. It might be time to start anew.

And maybe change my point of view.

(speaking) Nah, haha! I say let it die! (singing again) Let it die, let it die, let it shrivel up and - (speaking) Come on, who's with me Huh?

Marie: Nobody.

Cy: You greedy dirtbag!

Chorus: Let it grow, Let it grow, Let the love inside you show!

Plant a seed inside the Earth, just one way to know its worth.

Let's celebrate the world's rebirth, We say Let it Grow!

(Woah Woah) Let It Grow, Let It Grow, You can't reap what you don't sow.

It's just one tiny seed, but it's all we really need.

It's time to banish all your greed, imagine Thneedville flowered and treed.

Let this be our solemn creed.

Once-ler: (speaking) Thank you, Ted.

Crowd: We say Let It Grow

In Thneedville we say Let It Grow (It's a brand new dawn)

We say Let It Grow, in Thneedville We say Let It Grow (It's A Brand New Dawn).

Let it Grow (Celebrate the World)

Plant a seed inside the Earth

Just one way to know it's worth

When we celebrate the world, Celebrate the world

Come on and celebrate the world, Celebrate the world.

All you gotta do, All you gotta do is

Live your life be true, live your life, be true and

Never be afraid, never be afraid to grow, grow


It don't matter how you got it

It's yours now, don't you hide it

Let it grow, Let it grow

Let the love inside you show it

Just one way to know you're worth it

Let it grow, Let it grow


Just believe and you're almost there

Use your heart to show you care

Come on and celebrate the world, Celebrate the world

Come on and celebrate the world, Yeah

All you gotta do, All you gotta do is

Live your life be true, live your life be true and

Never be afraid, never be afraid to grow, grow


It don't matter how you got it

It's yours now, don't you hide it

Let it grow, Let it grow

Let the love inside you show it

Just one way to know you're worth it

Let it grow, Let it grow


It's your turn now

To show your world now

Open up your heart and let it grow

It's your turn now

To show your world now

Open up your heart and let it grow


It don't matter how you got it

It's yours now, don't you hide it

Let it grow, Let it grow

Let the love inside you show it

Just one way to know you're worth it

Let it grow, Let it grow
