When I Grow Up. SIX LITTLE KITTENS SAT TALKING ONE DAY OF THEIR BIG CAT COUSINS FAR AWAY. And each little kitten took their turn and said…. When I grow up I’m going to be…. A leopard And I’ll hunt so silently All by myself, solitary And I’ll drag my catch high in a tree
And I’ll hunt so silently
All by myself, solitary
And I’ll drag my catch high in a tree
Where no- one can reach it except for me!
And be a leopard in disguise
With jet black coat and piercing eyes
Proud strong and jungle wise
I’ll catch prey twice my size!
With a swishy tail and a magnificent mane
I will be king of the African plain
Over my pride of lionesses I shall reign
And roar louder than an express train!
Sleek and slender with tremendous power
To reach speeds of 70 miles an hour
At jackals and vultures I will glower
But from hyenas and lions I will cower!
I’ll be a rebel and obey no laws
With my mighty muscles and big fat paws
From which I’ll extend my fine sharp claws
And kill ; With my powerful jaws!
When I grow up
I’m going to be…
Just like mummyAnd be owned by a familyI won’t need to be fierce,When they stroke meI won’t have to hunt,Because they’ll feed meI won’t have to roar,Just purr softlyI won’t feel scared,Because they’ll protect me
I won’t have to race,
I can just be lazy
And sleep on their bed,
Because they’ll let me
