IF YOU WERE... A WISH
If you were a wish, would you wish for a patch
Just to patch up those holes in your jeans?
Would you wish for all reboots to be given the boot...
Wouldn't that be, you know, such a hoot?
If you were a wish, would you wipe out contempt?
Would you be all desire, no action?
Would you spark off a riot, an uproar for free?
Hey, what kind of a wish would you be?
Oh if wishes were horses, all beggars would ride.
Come, the wishing gate opens today!
Into nothing it opens? No Bora, no beach?
As the blind wish to show me the way.
If a prayer's a wish, does that make you a prayer?
Do I pray for a warmhearted God?
"Please be there," I would say, my foot triggering a snare.
Would that wish be misheard by ole Zod?
If you were a wish, would your wish be a spell?
Would your wish include neighbors and hell,
iPhones and Facebook and friends oh so dear?
I would make Roger Moore reappear.
