If I were a boy

I’d range my toy soldiers before the fire

Vast armies of plastic in green and grey

With the cannon blasting the enemy –

A glorious victory again today!

If I were a boy

I’d eat my morning cereal with Robin Hood

Propped up in his Whitman book before me

Its pages open to an England where

Every day is summer, green upon the lea

If I were a boy

My mother would remind me, to my sorrow

That I have a ‘rithmetic test tomorrow
