I Wish (Travelling To School)

I Wish (travelling To School) 1

Sing and Learn the Actions!


I wish I could travel to school today,
by a train or in a plane,
on a boat hey I 'd float.
Or on a bus, there 'd be no fuss
but I have to choose,
walking in my shoes!

I wish I could travel to school today,
in a sports car, I 'd be a star,
on a motorbike or a trike.
On a tram, there 'd be no traffic jams
but I have to choose,
walking in my shoes!

Whistle the whole verse until last line

But I have to choose, walking in my shoes x6
