I wish I could be like a big bumble bee
And I could buzz all the day and the night.
I’d like to buzz up to that lazy tom cat
And then I would give him a fright.
I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
And look down at the world from above.
Then to sit on the top of the roof of your house
Is something I think I would love.
I wish I could be like a lofty giraffe,
Who could reach to the top of a tree,
But now that I think of it, such a long neck,
Is something that isn’t quite me.
I wish I could be like a whale in the sea
And I’d glide round the world with such ease.
Oh don’t tell a witch that I’m wishing to change –
She could turn me into some cheese.
