If I were a chameleon,
I would play on the jungle gym.
I would hang on the monkey bars
And swing back and forth.
I would wait for my friend Tony,
And I would hide from him so he couldn’t find me.
I would change colors so he could see me,
Then change again so he could not see me.
It would be like hide and seek.
Then I would go to Dairy Queen and be invisible,
And eat lots of ice cream.
Then I would go to the YMCA and be invisible,
And I would go swimming.
I would be blue like the water.
Then I would turn pink, yellow and red,
And I would scare people.
Then I would be tired so I would go home.
I would kiss my mom goodnight and go to bed.
