What does an elephant think about,
As he stands inside a zoo?
What passes through his mind,
As he’s looking back at you?
What does a pigeon think about,
As he soars above the crowds?
Perhaps it just a simple thing,
As he plays amongst the clouds.
A single ant is scurrying,
His job it must be done.
The others they depend on him,
The many and the one.
A crow is thinking, I can tell,
He cocks his head at me.
Is he looking at my lunch,
Does he think it’s free?
Two yellow fish are playing,
Deep beneath the sea.
I wonder what they’re thinking of
Could it be of me?
A turtle swims beneath the waves,
A carefree life at best.
But then one day he wonders,
What about the rest?
Behind, beside and over there,
Are those we do not know.
But they have thoughts and feelings,
Just like that silly crow.
What does a person think about,
And he looks upon another?
Race and colour notwithstanding,
Could he be my brother?
This crazy world that we call ours,
We’re only tenants here.
If we make nice and play together,
There is no one to fear.
