  \begin{verse}
    \[G]The flower said, ``I wish I was a \[C]tree''
    The tree said, ``I wish I could \[D]be
    A different kind of tree''
    \[G]The cat wished that it was a bee
    \[G]The turtle wished that it could fly
    \[C]Really high into the sky
    \[D]Over rooftops and then dive
    \[G]Deep into the sea
  \end{verse}

  \begin{verse}
    And in the sea there is a fish
    A fish that has a secret wish
    A wish to be a big cactus
    With a pink flower on it
    \rep{2}
  \end{verse}

  \begin{verse}
    And the flower
    Would be its offering
    Of love
    To the desert
    And the desert
    So dry and lonely
    That the creatures all
    Appreciate the effort
  \end{verse}

  \begin{verse}
    Et le jackalope a dit:
    ``Je voudrais être un yéti
    Pour voler dans la nuit
    Et m'en aller loin d'ici''
    Mais le yéti a dit:
    ``Je voudrais être un monstre marin
    Pour pouvoir sauter dans la mer
    De tous les requins''
  \end{verse}

  \begin{verse}
    And the rattlesnake said, ``I wish I had hands
    So I could hug you like a man''
    And then the cactus said:
    ``Don't you understand?
    My skin is covered with sharp spikes
    That'll stab you like a thousand knives
    A hug would be nice
    But hug my flower with your eyes''
  \end{verse}
