If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it,
Chattin' to a chimp in chimpanzee,
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah,
What a neat achievement it would be!
If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages,
We could take an animal degree,
We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea!
We would converse in polar bear and python,
And we would curse in fluent kangaroo,
If people ask us "can you speak rhinocerous?"
We'd say "of courserous! Can't you?"
If we conferred with our furry friends, man to animal,
Think of all the things we could discuss
If we could walk with animals, talk with the animals,
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals,
And they could talk to us!
