As If

as if a mouse was humble
as if an eagle was proud
as if a sky was blue
cause it missed a cloud
as if the frogs went a-courtin
and the cows came home
and a horse'd force a rider
for a ride of her own

as if a pond could ponder
how an eel could feel
as if a spider was a writer
with a publishin deal
as if a daisy was lazy
and a snail could crawl
and a cricket had a ticket
to the symphony hall

praise the darkness
praise the light
praise the daylights
outta the night
praise all creatures
great and small
as if a song could make a
little bit a diff'rence at all

as if a tiger would dine
with a fork and knife
as if a lion was a mayan in
an alternate life
as if the june bugs're cousins
of your salt water otter
and a fly made friends with
your mother's fly swatter

praise for adam
praise for eve
praise the snake god
had up his sleeve
praise the darkness
praise the fall
as if a song could make a
little bit a diff'rence at all

as if a beaver could believe'r
think it all absurd
as if a robin had a problem
on becomin a bird as if
the strings did the strummin
that the hand only heard
as if the universe were hummin
cause it forgot the words

praise the living
praise the dead
praise the wine
and daily bread
praise this big blue
beautiful ball
as if a song could make
a little bit of
diff'rence at all

as if space was a place
and time was a stage
as if god had a job
for the minimum wage
as if the angels set a table
when we're finished with things
as if a human could be
bloomin in a
butterfly's wings
