A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE

 

If I could live a fantasy

I’d be a little mouse.

I’d wait until the lights were out

And scurry ‘round your house.

 

I’d promise not to chew your things

For I would aim to please,

So perhaps you’d make a pet of me

And feed me cake and cheese.

 

But you wouldn’t see me often,

For I avoid the light,

So I’d play and eat and scamper

While you’re asleep at night.

 

Yet, when you wish to play with me,

You’d call me by my name,

And I would hurry to your hand,

For I would be quite tame.

 

I’d be as neat as I could be,

And clean my crumbs away.

I’d really be the nicest pet,

If you would let me stay.
