What I want to be

I want to be a climber

of mountains way up high
Climb all the way up to the top
above the cloudy sky
Pilots in the airplanes
wave as they fly by
“Oh” I want to be a climber
of mountains way up high

 

I want to be a sailor
a sailor of the sea
Sailing under clear blue skies
to see what I can see
Treasures in the island
waiting there for me
‘Oh’ I want to be a sailor
a sailor of the sea

 

I want to be a cowboy
that rides across the plains
Me and my trusty horse
Bandit is his name
We ride in all the rodeos
fans call out our name
‘Oh’ I want to be a cowboy
that rides across the plains

 

I want to be a fireman
that wears the big red hat
Climbing up the ladder
and saving kitty cats
Driving the firetruck
or riding on the back
‘Oh’ I want to be a fireman
that wears the big red hat

 

I want to be an astronaut
that flies up to the moon
Floating through the universe
I hear there’s lots of room
Chasing Halley’s comet
It should be coming soon
“Oh “ I want to be an astronaut
that flies up to the moon

 

I want to be a zoologist
working with animals at the zoo
Monkeys and Lions
and jumping kangaroos
Washing down the elephants
It’s quite a job to do
“Oh” I want to be a zoologist
working with animals at the zoo

 

I want to be a conservator
and art I will restore
Broken sculptures
and paintings that are torn
Working in museums
with things that I adore
‘Oh’ I want to be a conservator
and art I will restore

You are a natural songwriter

You are a natural songwriter
This poem seems like a ballad sung by a bard of old

You have a great gift.

My only difference with you is over rodeos which often break people's
spines, horses' legs, calves necks. As over a billion people in the
world are vegetarian vegan or fruitarian now the world is
changing rapidly
