Still me.

Some days I'm just an elephant. I eat some leaves and watch the hunt. And sometimes I'm a rattlesnake. When I get mad, what noise I make!

When I'm a lazy crocodile, I just stretch out and wait a while. But if I am a butterfly, I can't sit still, so I don't try.

I am a cat from time to time And get stuck in trees I climb. And people run if they see me When I become a bumblebee.

But mostly, I'm a kid like you, And all these different things I do Are make-believe, but lots of fun, Because I'm still me when I get done.
