Do you ever wonder?

Do you ever wonder why a mole can’t see

Or a snake can’t sing or a fish can’t walk?

Do you ever wonder why a snail can’t talk?

Do you wonder what it’s like to be me?

 

Do you ever wonder why a goose can’t ski

Or a dog can’t write or a hen can’t hop?

Do you ever wonder why a shark can’t stop?

Do you ever wonder what it’s like to be me?

 

Do you ever wonder why a cow can moo

Or a seal can clap or a goat can bleat?

Do you ever wonder why a bird can tweet?

Do you ever think of things that I can do?

 

Do you ever think I’m not the same as you

Or show that in the things you say?

Well, I can think of lots of games that we can play.

Why don’t we think of things that we can do?
