I often wish I were a King,
And then I could do anything.
 
If only I were King of Spain,
I’d take my hat off in the rain.
 
If only I were King of France,
I wouldn’t brush my hair for aunts.
 
I think, if I were King of Greece,
I’d push things off the mantelpiece.
 
If I were King of Norroway,
I’d ask an elephant to stay.
 
If I were King of Babylon,
I’d leave my button gloves undone.
 
If I were King of Timbuctoo,
I’d think of lovely things to do.
 
If I were King of anything,
I’d tell the soldiers, “I’m the King!”
