Funny Poems Listening Page I Wish I Were a Christmas Tree Skype Visits

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.
