I wish I was a bird,

Flying high, Flying free,

Just didn’t care about the world,

And chilling on a tree.


I wish I was a bee,

Buzzing all day ‘round,

Just flying peacefully,

Or rolling on the ground.


I wish I was a flower,

Swaying left and right,

Every morning a cold shower,

And stars at night.


I wish I was a cloud,

Staying high and proud,

Flying all around,

Not caring for a sound.
