Ask me how do I feel, Little me with my quiet upbringing; Well sir, all I can say is If I were a gate I'd be swinging! And if I were a watch, I'd start popping my spring, Oh, and if I were a bell I'd go "Ding dong ding dong ding!". Ask me how do I feel >From this chemistry lesson I'm learning; Well sir, all I can say is If I were a bridge I'd be burning! Well, I knew my moral would crack >From the wonderful way you looked; Boy, if I were a duck I'd quack, Or if I were a goose I'd be cooked! Ask me how do I feel Now that we're fondly caressing; And if I were a salad, I know I'd be splashing my dressing! Or if I were a season, I'd surely be Spring, Yes, and if I were a bell, Say, if I were a bell, If I were a bell I'd go "Ding dong ding dong ding!". (Contributed by Peter Akers - October 2009)
