Lyrics I'D RATHER BE A SPARROW
THAN A SNAIL,
YES I WOULD,
IF I COULD,
I SURELY WOULD.
I'D RATHER BE A HAMMER
THAN A NAIL,
YES I WOULD,
IF ONLY I COULD,
I SURELY WOULD.

AWAY,
I'D RATHER SAIL AWAY
LIKE A SWAN
THAT'S HERE AND GONE.
A MAN GETS TIED UP
TO THE GROUND,
HE GIVES THE WORLD
ITS SADDEST SOUND,
ITS SADDEST SOUND.

I'D RATHER BE A FOREST
THAN A STREET,
YES I WOULD.
IF I COULD,
I SURELY WOULD.
I'D RATHER FEEL
THE EARTH
BENEATH MY FEET,
YES I WOULD,
IF I ONLY COULD,
I SURELY WOULD.
