If I was a flag
I’d be flapping and raising
If I was a star
Up high I’d be blazing!

If I was a saint
I’d be singing and praying
If I was some hips
You just know I’d be swaying!

If I was a bird
I’d be nesting and crowing
If I was a cup
I’d be just overflowing!

If I was a mouth
I’d be laughing and joking
If I was a fire
I’d be roaring and smoking!

If I was the sky
You just know I’d be lightning
If I was a ghost
I’d be spooky and frightening!

But just look at me now
As plain as can be
I’m glad that I’m normal
I’m glad that I’m me!
