BE CAREFUL

WHAT YOU WISH FOR

By Josie Whitehead

Be Careful What You Wish For

I wish I could be like a big bumble bee
     And I could buzz all the day and the night.
I’d like to buzz up to that lazy tom cat
     And then I would give him a fright.

I wish I could be like a bird in the sky
     And look down at the world from above.
Then to sit on the top of the roof of your house
     Is something I think I would love.

I wish I could be like a lofty giraffe,
     Who could reach to the top of a tree,
But now that I think of it, such a long neck,
     Is something that isn’t quite me.

I wish I could be like a whale in the sea
     And I’d glide round the world with such ease.
Oh don’t tell a witch that I’m wishing to change
     For she could turn me into some cheese.
