I might do a painting, I might read a book,
I might write a poem, I might learn to cook.
I might do some tracing, I might act a play,
I might make a pot with some modelling clay.
I might build some Lego, I might sing a song.
I might do some sums, I might get them wrong.
I might get the guinea pig out of his cage,
I might get dressed up and dance on the stage.
I might make a spaceship and fly up to Mars,
I might switch the lights out and study the stars.
I might make a potion, I might cast a spell
I might make a prince from a frog in a well.
I might explore Africa, might cross the Pole,
might play for England, might score a goal.
I might fly a jet plane, might walk on the moon,
I can do what I want for a whole afternoon.
I might be a Viking, I might be from Rome.
I would rule the world but it’s time to go home.
