Natalie Merchant


If the butterfly courted the bee,
And the owl the porcupine;
If churches were built in the sea,
And three times one was nine

If the pony rode his master,
If the buttercups ate the cows,
If the cat had the dire disaster
To be worried by the mouse;
If mama sold the baby

To a gypsy for half a crown;
If a gentleman was a lady,-
The world would be upside-down!
If any or all of these wonders
Should ever come about

I should not consider them blunders,
For I should be inside-out!
