Some other versions of "Talk To The Animals"


If I could talk to the animals.
Just imagine if.
Chatting with a chimp chimpanzee.
Imagine talking to the tiger.
Chatting with the cheetah.
What a neat achievement it would be.

If we could talk to the animals.
And learn there languages.
Maybe take an animal to agree.

I'd study elephant and eagle.
Buffalo and beagle.
Alligator, guinea pig , and Flea.

I would converse in Polar bear pathon(?).
I wouldn't curse in fluent Kangaroo.
If people asked me can you speak rhinoceros.
I'd say of causurus.
Can't you.

If I could flirt with a fury friends.
Man the animal.
Think of the amazing repartee.

If I could walk with the animals.
And talk with the animals.
And squawk with the animals.
And love they could talk to me.
(Instrument Solo)

If I could talk to the animals.
Think what fun we'd have.
Asking over crocodiles for tea.
Or maybe lunch with two or three lions.
Walruses and sea lions.
What a lovely place the world would be.

If I spoke slang to an orangutan.
Oh the advantages.
Any fool on earth can plainly see.

Discussing ease and art and dramas.
With intellectual llamas.
That's a big steep for a dual of three.

I'd learn to speak in antelope and turtle.
My Pekinese would be extremely good.
If I were asked to sing in Hippopotamus
I'd say why-not-amus
And I would.

Stop and think of it .
There's no doubt of it.
I could win a place in history.

If I could walk with the animals.
And talk to the animals.
Grunt, Squeak,
And squawk with the animals.
And they could. Squeak, and Squawk,
and Speak , and Talk To me
They would talk too.
