Everyone deserves a giraffe I think,
Because sometimes it’s hard to reach those things
Above the kitchen sink
And sometimes your kitten is caught in a tree
And he can use the giraffe’s neck to slide down–
But then again if everyone had a giraffe
All the giraffes in the desert might go
It’s just mean to put a giraffe in the snow.
So maybe everyone should have a monkey
It would be the newest funky
It could teach us to glide through the trees
And how to pick off nasty fleas
But then there might not be monkeys in the forest
And then these things would begin to bore us
So maybe everyone should have an elephant
I think that would make us quite content
We could travel around
With trunks instead of horns that go
But then where would our elephants sleep?
So maybe instead we should just be,
And let the animals go roaming free,
We may be able to see
All of them in the desert,
The ponds, and the trees.
