I wish I had invented soap. Now, what a thing to do
Each time a person washes clean those vibes come back to you…
I wish I had invented pearls that sparkle, sheen and shine
strung up upon those pretty necks. That would be divine!
I wish I had invented the car, the plane or fire or the wheel
Each one of these affords us comfort…What a groovy deal
I wish I had invented Tupperware, gravy or some heels
instead of hanging around like a bat in the dark to digest a meal
Oh, I wish so many things. If I had had more time...
I would make a gadget or two. Now, that would be sublime
Unfortunately, I have to go and fix my nasty hair.
I have to go and wash my clothes; make clean my underwear
I’m pressed by time...I have things to do. Now, I must go away
Inventing soap will have to wait another day.
