One Day

One day I will be king,
And have lots of pretty things,
Like crowns and thrones and palaces,
And one hundred diamond rings.

One day I'll be an explorer,
And catch wild tigers for fun,
And take fat people on safari,
And watch them sweating in the sun.

One day I'll be extremely rich,
And eat caviar with honey,
And have a wife much younger than me,
Who loves me for my money.

One day I'll be a grown-up,
And do anything I choose,
I'll go to dinner parties,
And spend two weeks' wages on shoes.

But while I'm still a child,
And I'm told how to look and dress,
I think I'll just wait patiently,
And settle for happiness.
