If I were...


queen

If I were Queen of the Earth
And things would go my way
There'd be no brussel sprouts
No anchovies
No asparagus, no way!

School would start an hour later
And end one earlier
Less homework! More fun!
And it wouldn't be on Monday

Bought lunches would be delicious
And full of treats n' snacks
Kids would say
"Yum yum! I'm glad I didn't pack!"

Everybody'd have a pet 'specially cats
College would be cheaper
So I could get in like a snap

We'd make un-religious holidays
So people could parad and party
No matter who they were

It'd be a better place
If I were Queen of the Earth
But no one let me take the job
So there's no Queen of the Earth.
