Who I'd Be

This song is by Unknown Artist.

I guess I'd be a hero
With sword and armor clashing
Looking semi dashing
A shield within my grip

Or else I'd be a viking
And live a life of daring
While smelling like a herring
Upon a viking ship

I'd sail away, I'd see the world
I'd reach the farthest reaches
I'd feel the wind, I'd taste the salt and sea
And maybe storm, some beaches
That's who I'd be, that's who I'd be

Or I could be a poet
And write a different story
One that tells of glory
And wipes away the lies

And to the skies I'd throw it
The stars would do the telling
The moon would help with spelling
And night would dot the 'I's

I'd write my verse, recite a joke
It'd fit in perfect timing
I'd share my heart, confess the things I yearn
And do it all while rhyming
But we all learn, but we all learn

An ogre always hides
An ogre's fate is known
And ogre always stays
In the dark and all alone

So yes, I'd be a hero
And if my wish were granted
Life would be enchanted
Or so the stories say

Of course I'd be a hero
And I would scale a tower
And save a hothouse flower
And carry her away

But standing guard there'd be a beast
I'd somehow overwhelm it
I'd get the girl, I'd take my breath
And I'd remove my helmet

We'd stand and stare, we'd speak of love
We'd feel the stars ascending
We'd share a kiss, I'd find my destiny

I'd have a hero's ending
A perfect happy ending
That's how it would be
A big bright beautiful world
But not for me

An ogre always hides
An ogre's fate is known
And ogre always stays
In the dark, you're all alone, all alone

So yes, I'd be a hero and if my wish were granted
(And I know he'll appear)
Life would be enchanted or so the stories say
(Fiona: 'Cause there are rules and there are strictures)
(Donkey: All alone)

Of course I'd be a hero and I would scale a tower
(Fiona: I believe a storybooks I read)
(Donkey: You need a pal. My calendar's open)
And save a hot-house flower and carry her away
(Fiona: By candlelight)
(Donkey: You need me)

A perfect happy ending
That's how it should be
