Why the Tree is Sad

A song story about a sad tree and his many friends – the monkey, the snake, the tiger, the eagle who brings him fish, the mouse who sings him rap. They even call a witch who gives him a dose of ‘dream’. All his friends try to find what makes him so sad. Can you guess, finally, what really makes the tree happy again?
