Snail



I'm a snail on the garden wall,
but i wish i wasn't one at all.

I wish i was a bird up high,
soaring through,
the big blue sky.

A lizard i would like to be,
baking on a rock,
i think i'm getting burnt i'd better get my sunblock.

Or mabey i could be a roo,
bouncing up and down,
i'd be a very bouncy fella,
never have a frown.

But for now i'm just a little snail,
nothing much at all,
i'm not big, i'm not fat, i'm not even tall.

I'm as boring, as boring, as boring can be,
a boring little snail is deifently me!!
