If We Could Talk To The Animals……


Remember the song Dr. Dolittle sang? In it he imagines a world where we could talk with the animals – all the animals. What would your world look like if you lived in a place where you could talk to the animals and they could talk to you……

If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it

Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee

Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah

What a neat achievement that would be.

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages

Maybe take an animal degree.

We’d study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle,

Alligator, guinea pig, and flea.

We could converse in polar bear and python,

And we could curse in fluent kangaroo.

If people asked us, can you speak in rhinoceros,

We’d say, “Of courserous, can’t you?”

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages

Think of all the things we could discuss

If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals,

Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals,

And they could squeak and squawk and speak and talk to us.

Remember, not only Dr. Dolittle, but you too can also talk to the animals!
