I was getting bored, watching TV,
Till, from the door, I saw Mummy
She asked, "What do you want to be?"
I replied, "I haven't thought yet, Mommy"
She said, "Think about it!"
Thinking, I said, "I could be an artist."
"I could be an architect and design homes,
Or I could be a detective like Sherlock Holmes"
"I could be a baker and bake cakes and breads
Or I could be a bed-maker and make beds"
"I could be a weaver and make mats,
Or I could be a scientist and experiment on rats"
"I could be a doctor and treat people who aren't well
Or I could be a factory-worker and make things to buy and sell"
"I could be a policewoman and keep the law
Or I could be a carpenter and work with a saw"
"An astronaut in the outer space,
A keeper in a zoo,
I could be anything in the world,
There's something surely out there I can do "
