I’d steal the sunshine’s welcome warmth
And the breeze’s tender touch -
But would you like some monster's teeth?
Oh, no no no - - not much.
I’d steal the robin's cheerful song,
And perhaps some soft white snow -
But would you steal a monster’s roar?
Oh, no no no - and NO!
I’d steal the lovely autumn hues -
And the heather on the hill -
But steal a monster’s appetite?
Oh YES YES YES, I WILL!!!
