if I was a big black dog I'd howl the whole night through
but when the morning came I'd still be true to you
if I was a rocket I'd fly right to the moon
but I'd miss you oh so much I'd come back very soon

if I was a flower I'd grow so tall and high
but when the winter came along I know I'd have to die
if I was a little child I'd play all day long
but I'd always stop and listen to your sweet little song

if I was a rich man I'd have everything I saw
but I'd be so unhappy cos I'd always want some more
but I am just a poor boy on a journey somewhere
so I'll take my chances and hope someday you'll care
