lyrics

Charlie woke up and got out of bed.
Visions of the future danced in his head.
All he wanted was appreciation,
But he doesn't know how to get that sensation.
And he'll nev er be the dog he wants to be.
He'll never be the dog he wants to be.

Sarah walked out of her public school.
She said I'm tired of being a fool.
"I'm not here for society's delight.
Like a one-armed man in a two-gunned fight.
And I'll never be the bird I want to be.
I'll never be the bird I want to be."

Life would be better if we could be animals of our own choice.

Dave got fired from his office job.
They said, "You're late, where's your tie, you slob?"
Dave was tired of the conglomerate,
He's an irate man and he wants to conquer it.
But he'll never be the bull he wants to be.
No, he'll never be the bull he wants to be.

Christine was always in the spotlight.
Like a criminal fleeing in the middle of the night.
She said, "I know I have a great voice,
But now I don't really have a choice.
And I'll never be the turtle I want to be.
I'll never be the turtle I want to be."

Ron was looked down on for 26 years,
He became an alcoholic to get over his fears.
He says "I'm only trying to get by,
And I just want to hold my head high.
But I'll never be the giraffe I want to be.
I'll never be the giraffe I want to be."

Life would be better if we could be animals of our own choice.
