If I were a lion, a big bad lion,

    With an impressive mighty roar,

I’d have no care as to who was there

    Or who hid behind their door.

 

If I were a lion and the king of beasts,

    I’d ferociously guard my pride -

And all who heard my roaring voice

    Would run with fear and hide.

 

If I were a lion I’d wear a mane

    To protect me when I fight -

And all my wives would bring me food

      From kills made late at night.

 

If I were a lion, oh, if I were a lion - - -

    But I’m only a human child -

And when I pretended that I was a lion

    Well, my Daddy simply smiled.
