BEING A DOG 


I DON’T THINK I WOULD BE A HOG

‘CAUSE I’D RATHER BE A DOG.

I DON’T THINK I WANT TO BE A SNAIL

‘CAUSE I LIKE WAGGING MY TAIL.

I DON’T LIKE TO BE A SHARK

‘CAUSE I WANT TO BARK.

I WOULDN’T WANT TO BE AN OWL

‘CAUSE I NEED TO HOWL.

I DON’T THINK I WANT TO BE MY AUNT

‘CAUSE I NEED TO PANT.

MAYBE I CAN FLY LIKE AN EAGLE

BUT I’D RATHER BE A BEAGLE.

I DON’T THINK I WANT TO BE A CRAB

I WOULD RATHER BE A LAB.

IT WOULD BE FUN TO CHASE A BEAVER

‘CAUSE IT’S COOL TO BE A RETRIEVER.

I DON’T THINK I WOULD BE A HEN

‘CAUSE I’D RATHER BE MAN’S BEST FRIED.

I DON’T WANT TO CROAK LIKE A FROG

‘CAUSE IT’S BETTER TO BE A DOG.
