I Would Like You For a Comrade

by Edward Abbott Parry

I would like you for a comrade,

For I love you, that I do,

I never met a little girl

As amiable as you;

I would teach you how to dance and sing,

And how to talk and laugh,

If I were not a little girl

And you were not a calf.


I would like you for a comrade,

You should share my barley meal,

And butt me with your little horns

Just hard enough to feel;

We would lie beneath the chestnut trees

And watch the leaves uncurl,

If I were not a clumsy calf

And you a little girl.
