​Century Plant

This song is by Michael Gore and appears on the movie soundtrack Camp (2003).

Outside my house is a cactus plant
They call the Century Tree
Only once in a hundred years
It flowers gracefully
And you never know when it will bloom

Hey, do you wanna come out
And play the game
It's never too late
Hey, do you wanna come out
And play the game
It's never too late

Clementine Hunter was 54
Before she packed up her paint
Old Uncle Taylor was 81
When he rode his bike across the plains of China
And the sun was shining on that day
Just like today

Didn't know how to tell her
For over thirty years
He kept locked up inside himself
And no one saw the tears
And then she went away
And he woke up that day

Now he brings roses to his sweetheart
She lives most anywhere
He sees someone suffering
He knows that despair
So he offers them a rose
And some quiet prose
About dancing in a shimmering ballroom
'Cause you never know when they will bloom
