I wish I were a mockingbird so I could sing the whole day long
I’d fill my time with happiness and live a lifetime full of song !
I wish I were a robin red who sings a flutelike warbling tune
That echoes after eventide and carries on under the moon !
If I could be a whippoorwill I’d roam the forest late at night
The song I chant you’d recognize, I sing, but always out of sight !
