Grow for Me

This song is by Howard Ashman and appears on the musical Little Shop of Horrors (1982) by Alan Menken and on the movie soundtrack Little Shop of Horrors (1986) by Alan Menken.

I've given you sunshine
I've given you dirt
You've given me nothin'
But heartache and hurt!
I'm beggin' you sweetly
I'm down on my knees.
Oh please-
Grow for me.

I've given you plantfood
And water to sip
I've given you potash.
You've given me zip.
Oh god how I mist you
Oh pod how you tease
Now please-
Grow for me.

I've given you Southern exposure
To get you to thrive
I've pinched you back hard,
Like I'm supposed to,
You're barely alive
I've tried you at levels of moisture,
From desert to mud.

I've given you grow-lights and mineral supplements.
What do you want from me?

Hey, Twoey, look what I did! Hey, you opened up! I
Wonder what made you do that?
I think I know what made you do that. Well, I guess
A few drops couldn't hurt. Long as you don't make a
Habit out of it or anything.
{End of spoken lines}

I've given you sunlight
I've given you rain
Looks like you're not happy
'Less I open a vein!
I'll give you a few drops
If that'll appease
Oh please-
Oh oh oh please-
Grow for me?
