Wish

From the album Grow It at Home Buy Now

WISH

Wish I could write a song 

Wish I had purple hair 

Wish I was really strong!

I wish we had clean air! 

I wish I enough money

To buy stuff I wanna buy 

I wish I had a trampoline, 

I wish that I could fly! 

 

Chorus: Oh-oo!  I wish!  (I wish!)

Oh-oo!  I wish!  (I wish!) 

Oh-oo!  I wish!  (I wish!) 

Oh-oo!  I wish!  (I wish!) 

 

I wish Grandpa didn’t smoke.

I wish people didn’t fight!

Wish I had no bed time!

We could watch TV all night!

Wish there were no mosquitoes!

I wish kids didn’t bleed!

I wish ev’ry one who wanted one

Had a pizza to eat!

Chorus

 

Wish I could save the animals

I’d save a polar bear!

I’d keep him in my bathtub

And I’d brush his hair!

Wish I could drive Dad’s car!

I could drive you to the zoo!

Wish I could play guitar.

I wish our wishes would come true!

Chorus

 

I wish God would hear us wishing, up in Heaven where He

     dwells

Y’know, somewhere I heard “God, helps those who help

     themselves”

Cause when we wish and wish, and we get no satisfaction

Then something needs t’change, we gotta take some action!

            So when I wish for something, I take out my mirror

            I can see who needs t’help me, yeah, couldn't be much

                    clearer!

            Cause sittin’ here and wishin’, it’s a really big

                    distraction!

            Stead of sittin’ here and wishin’, let’s get up and take

                    some action!  C’mon!

 

Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!    Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!

Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!    Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!

Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!    Oh-oo!  Woo-oo-oo!
