I Can Fly
Text by Ruth Krauss
Lyrics by Hilda Marx
Music by Alec Wilder

**********************

I CAN FLY
Words by Ruth Krauss

A bird can fly.
So can I.

A cow can moo.
I can, too.

I’m merrier than a terrier.
Swish!  I’m a fish!
Pick pick pick, I’m a little chick.
My house is like a mouse’s.
A clam is what I am.
Bump bump bump, I’m a camel with a hump.
Pitter pitter pat, I can walk like a cat.
Howl howl howl, I’m an old screech owl.

Bubble gubble gubble, I’m a mubble in a pubble.
I can play, I’m anything that’s anything.

Tht’s my way.
