I wish I were a pirate bold
And sailed the seven seas,
But a pirate must do awful things
Whilst my wish is to please.
I wish I were a clever cook
And cooked meals for your plate –
But a clever cook I’ll never be
For cooking’s what I hate.
I wish I were a fast race horse,
And every race I’d win,
But a horse’s head instead of mine
Would surely make you grin.
I wish I were a man in space
And could steer my way to mars,
But would I get quite lost in space
Far up, amongst the stars?
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish - - -
Oh, I’m glad that I’m just me –
And I’ll sit and write and write and write
Whilst you’ll get po e try.
