Hummingbird

I'd like to have a hummingbird as a pet
I'd treat him just like a friend
I'd build him a house on top of my picket fence
that way I wouldn't have to hear him snore
but nobody sells hummingbirds
no you can't buy a hummingbird in a store
and if all good people would hear my song
i'd like all good people to sing along
you can't buy a hummingbird in a store

I'd like to have a platypus as a pet
I'd treat him just like a friend
I'd let him drive my old Mercedes Benz
if his little feet would only reach the floor
but nobody sells platypuses
no you can't buy a platypus in a store
and if all good people would hear my song
i'd like all good people to sing along
you can't buy a platypus in a store

I'd like to have a pelican as a pet
I'd treat him just like a friend
I'd take him down to that old river bed
and we'll play some paddleball up on that shore
but nobody sells pelicans
no you can't buy a pelican in a store
and if all good people would hear my song
i'd like all good people to sing along
you can't buy a pelican in a store

we need to change them laws, people
there's a lot of hummingbirds and platypuses and pelicans
out there that need a good loving home
are they any different from a dog
or a cat or a scorpion?
no, they're all God's creatures
