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.

The End.
