TITLE: Talk to the Animals
Lyrics and Chords

[ Fdim7 = xx3434 ]

If we could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chatting to a chimp in chimpanzee
Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting to a cheetah
What a neat achievement that would be

/ Em C G A / D - - - / Em A7 D Am / E7 Bm7 A7 - /

If we could talk to the animals, learn their languages
Maybe take an animal degree
We'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea

We would converse in polar bear and python
And we could curse in fluent kangaroo
If people asked us, "Can you speak in rhinoceros?"
We'd say, "Of courserous, can't you?"

/ Am7 - G - / / Bm - A - / E7 - Em A7 / 

If we conferred with our furry friends, man to animal
Think of all the things we could discuss
If we could walk with the animals, talk with the animals
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals
And they could squeak and squawk and speak and talk to us

... / Em A7 F#m B7 / Gmaj7 C#m7 Bm7 E7 / Em Em7 D Fdim7 Em7 A7 D /
