This morning, whilst I was feeding the Ravens, two of them began cawing at me from their perches.

I swear, it sounded like they were cawing, "C'mon, lady!  Hurry it up!  Give us this day our daily bread!"

 

So I cawed back, "Keep your tailfeathers on!  I've got to shovel out a place for you to dine, first!"

 

That's when I got to thinking.  'Animals can converse with one another.  In the New System, will we be able

to converse with them?'

 

Don't know.  But I certainly hope so. ^_^

If I Could Talk With the Animals

Songwriters: Bricusse, Leslie

 

If I could talk to the animals, just imagine it
Chattin' with a chimp in chimpanzee

Imagine talking to a tiger, chatting with a cheetah
What a neat achievement it would be

 

If we could talk to the animals, learn all their languages
I could take an animal degree

I'd study elephant and eagle, buffalo and beagle
Alligator, guinea pig, and flea

 

I would converse in polar bear and python
And I would curse in fluent kangaroo

If people ask me, Can you speak rhinoceros?
I'd say, Of course, can't you?

 

If I conferred with our furry friends, man to animal
Think of the amazing repartee

If I could walk with the animals, talk with the animals
Grunt and squeak and squawk with the animals

 

And they could talk to me

 

If I consulted with quadrupeds
Think what fun we'd have asking over crocodiles for tea
Or maybe lunch with two or three lions, walruses and sea lions
What a lovely place the world would be

 

If I spoke slang to orangutans
The advantages why any fool on earth could plainly see
Discussing Eastern art and dramas with intellectual llamas
That's a big step forward you'll agree

 

I'd learn to speak in antelope and turtle
And my Pekingese would be extremely good
If I were asked to sing in hippopotamus
I'd say, Why not-a-mus and I would"

 

If I could parlay with pachyderms
It's a fairy tale worthy of Hans Anderson and Grimm
A man who walks with the animals and talks with the animals
Grunts and squeaks and squawks with the animals

And they could talk to him

 

Let me hear 'em talk

I'd study every creature's language
So I could speak to all of them on site

 

If friends said, Can he talk in crab or maybe pelican?
You'd say, I canny can't and you'd be right

And if you just stop and think of it ain't no doubt of it
I'm gonna win a place in history

 

If I could walk with the animals talk with the animals
Grunt, squeak, squawk with the animals
And they could squeak and squawk and speak and talk to me

 

 

:uhhuh:Well, we wouldn't be discussing 'War and Peace' with them, but maybe just a basic understanding?:huh:

Sure. Adam named the animals so apparently he was on a first name basis with them. Why call an animal by name if he can't understand what you are saying?

:lol1:

I hope so. "Here piggy, here piggy". Easier than chasing them down.  :whistling:
