Taller than the tallest of the tall

Tall Tree City
Taller than the tallest of tall was Timothy Tall
He was taller than them all

Everyone looked up to Timothy Tall
His parents, his friends, the great and the small

No one was as tall in all of  Tall Tree city.
The city where he lived.

Timothy looked down upon all those dwelling below him
and said to himself
Ha, Ha  My name is Timothy the tall of Tall tree city  
No one is as tall as me, oh what a pity!

I stand like a cedar tree higher than the rest
I can see above the city the birds and their nests'

Then along came Taz, Taz the taller
and said look at you Timothy you're much smaller.

Everyone in the city looks up to me
Beyond every building  above every tree

Taller than the heights where the skies are blue
from the top of my head to the bottom of my shoe

You may be taller than tallest of the tall
but compared to Taz Taller you're real small.

Then shortly thereafter came another
who made Timothy and Taz like a little brother

Taz and Timothy said don't hurt us please
We can't see your face we come up to your knees

Our names are Taz taller and Timothy Tall
Until you came we were having a ball

We were the tallest of them all until you came
We don't even know you what is your name

I'm Thomas the Tallest of Big blue city
no one is as tall as me oh what a pity!

Don't take this the wrong way it isn't a tease
I can't hear you that well you come up to my knees

So take a deep breath and shout very loud
and let your words rumble beyond every cloud

Inhale deeply and let your voice bellow
then stand like a man and speak to your fellow

This is unbearable you're just to tall
next to you we're the smallest of the small

Then Taz and Timothy went home to play
and Thomas the Tallest went along his way.
