What if,

I always wondered,

What if,

‘bout so many things.

If it was this,

I wondered,

It sure could be.

What if skin,

Was polka dotted,

Different but pretty,

Just the same.

And everybody,

Smiled at everybody,

Just the same.

What if all our gods,

Were brothers and sisters above,

Sons and daughters,

Of wonderful love.

And we’re in their family tree,

Descendants of wonderful love.

It’s not a Spanish pipedream,

It’s just a far-fetched thing,

But fetch the far,

Lasso the star,

And "what if" can maybe bring,

Bring these "what ifs" together,

Bring these and maybe see,

If we all got together,

What a "what if" nice world it could be.
