I ran across this while searching for something else, and found it charming, so I decided to share it. It's on Spotify.

Not to be confused with the Eric Bogle song by the same title.


IF WISHES WERE FISHES
Written by Jeff Hunter
As sung by Jeff Hunter on "Elemenope (L-M-N-O-P)" (2007)

If wishes were fishes, they'd all stop and float
Right up to the surface, jump in the boat.
I'd pick each one up, give 'im a kiss.
That's the only way I know to get your fish wish.
That's the only way I know to get your fish wish.

If daydreamers were doggies, they'd always run in twos.
They'd sing two-part harmony when they did the blues.
You'd see 'em chasin' alley-cats, an' barkin' at the breeze.
That's the only way a dreamin' doggy's life should be.
I tell you, that's the only way a dreamin' doggy's life should be.

I wish I was a redwood with legs so I could walk.
I'd mingle with the squirrels, and to the birds I'd talk.
I'd ration all the acorns; then we'd see who's boss.
I'm a mighty redwood; I got legs so I can walk.
I'm a mighty redwood tree; with legs so I can walk.

If intentions were dimensions, they'd all take shape.
For ev'rything I cannot do, I just procrastinate,
And when St. Peter calls me, tell him ... have to wait.
If intentions were dimensions, they all would take shape.
If intentions were dimensions, they all would take shape.
