If I Were an Animal

Chorus:
If I were an animal what kind of animal….would I be
If I were an animal any kind of animal how would the world look to me

Verse 1:
Would I crawl on my belly and say hiss hiss hiss
wave my tail, hear it swish swish swish would
I swing through the air without a care
arms flying all about
Hoot and holler hear me shout
Feeling so free
Or would I buzz like a fuzzy bee
What sort of bug would I be

Chorus:
If I were an animal what kind of animal…..would I be
If I were an animal any kind of animal how would the world look to me

Verse 2:
Would I roll in the mud or go glub glub glub
Would I lie in a puddle all day
Would I bark at a cat or chase a rat, be a
Fly with his eye (clap)…on an apple pie
A moose with a tooth (clap,clap)…..that’s very loose
A goat in a moat (clap,clap,clap)…..ate a coat
Jump or fly, or caw or cry
What sort of things would I see
What kind of life would I lead

Chorus:
If I were an animal what kind of animal…..would I be
If I were an animal a great furry animal, how would the world look to me

Would I fly through the night with my radar bright
So I wouldn’t hit a tree
People might scream and get out of my way
So kids…..what do you call me

Would I croak all day or eat some hay
Live in a barn or lay eggs
Would I bounce up and down with a joey in my pouch
Would I run through the walkabout
Hoot and hollar hear me shout
Feeling so free  (Hmmm now let me   see; What can I imagine for me)
A snake with a bellyache caught in a garden rake
A skunk in a trunk that really really stunk
A fox wearing socks or an ox sniffing rocks
A loon and balloon (clap) on a blue lagoon
A snail on the tail (clap,clap) of a great big whale
A bear playing snare (clap,clap,clap) with a pear
A porpoise with a purpose (clap, clap, clap clap)
In the water (gurgle)

A goon playing tunes with some spoons on the moon
A duck playing tuba saying scuba dooba dooba
A carp playing harp looking very very sharp
How about amoeba, or maybe a youba?

Chorus:
If I were an animal what kind of animal…..would I be
If I were an animal any kind of animal how would the world look to me

Oh  my goodness gee, there’s so many questions I’m asking me
If I had to decide don’t know that I could
If I could change right now don’t know that I would
I think I’ll stick with what I’ve got if you don’t mind
That would be an animal of the ……human kind!!!!
