If Beavers Wore Pants

Written by: Jack Ellison

If turkeys could talk Or elephants could squawk What a very strange world this would be If ants could dance Or beavers wore pants And hamburgers grew on trees If bumble bees wheezed Fleas walked on their knees What a strange way of looking at things False teeth on a gator A polka dot tater And cabbage with tiny green wings Deers that drink beer Or gnats with big ears Weeds hanging down from their gizzards Grasshoppers with cheeks Or a cow with a beak A group of friendly pink lizards Don't know what this means But they've entered my dreams I wake up in a cold sweat sometimes They all seem so real Makes me shudder and squeal So I get up and pull down the blinds © Jack Ellison 2012
