Lyrics

Well, my mom brought home this hamster
That her friend unloaded cheap,
And she said since I'm the oldest
It could be my own to keep,
But I told her, "No thanks," cause I read this book
Where a guy had a talking cat.
Wouldn't it be cool to own a pet like that!

Mr. Popper marches penguins.
Jimmy's boa has a winning smile.
Joshua Primm on East 88th
Has a crocodile named Lyle.
Jeremy Thatcher, dragon hatcher,
Hatched a dragon named Tiamat.
Wouldn't it be cool to own a pet like that!

Unusual pets are running loose
Through the pages of this book by Dr. Seuss.
Here's a seven hump Wump! Could be just the thing!
Or a tiny hopping Yop or a singing Ying!
I could even dream a pet of my own design,
Like a porcupooch or a rhinopine
Or a triple-headed, chocolate-seeking, vampire bat!
Wouldn't it be cool to own a pet like that!

Now my sister owns the hamster,
And she named him Polkadot,
And his fur feels warm and friendly,
And we play with him a lot,
And he makes us laugh stuffing sunflower seeds
In his cheeks till his face turns fat!
It's truly cool to own a pet like that!
