If I could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement it would be

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Maybe take an animal degree
We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle
Alligator, guinea pig and flea

I would converse in polar bear and python
And we would speak in fluent kangaroo
If people ask me "Can you speak rhinoceros?"
I'd say, "Of course-er-as, can't you?"

If we conferred with our furry friends, man to animal
Think of the amazing repartee
If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals
And they could talk to me

If I could talk to the animals, think what fun I'd have
Asking over crocodiles for tea
Or maybe lunch with two or three lions, walruses and sea/ions
What a lovely place the world would be

If I spoke slang to orangatang
Oh, the advantages, any bloke on earth could plainly see
Discussing Eastern art and dramas with intellectual llamas
That's a big step forward you'll agree

I'd learn to speak in antelope and turtle
My Pekingese would be extremely good
If you were asked to sing in hippopotamus
I'd say, why not-a-mus, and I would

If you stop and think of it, there's no doubt of it
We could win a place in history
If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals
And they could squeak, and squawk and speak and talk to me
