If I were King of the Forest…

Saddam Hussein trial

If I were King of the Forest, Not queen, not duke, not prince.
My regal robes of the forest, would be satin, not cotton, not chintz.

I’d command each thing, be it fish or fowl.

With a woof and a woof and a royal growl – woof.

As I’d click my heel, all the trees would kneel.

And the mountains bow and the bulls kowtow.

And the sparrow would take wing – If I – If I – were King!

Each rabbit would show respect to me. The chipmunks genuflect to me.

Though my tail would lash, I would show compash

For every underling!

If I – If I – were King!

Just King!

Monarch of all I survey — Mo–na-a-a–a-arch Of all I survey!
