If I were an animal
I would like to be a cat
To lie around and sleep all day,
And other things like that

They’d feed me when I’m hungry,
And play when I am bored
They would give me lots of toys.
I know I’d be adored.

And if I met some mousies,
We’d have a little chat
They would keep out of the way,
And I could grow quite fat

That’s the life for me, I know,
The one I want the most
But for now I’ll stay a human,
Quite dead, really a ghost
