If Perfect I Could Be

Liliana Kohann

Oh, if perfect I could be
I would be so good to me
I would be so happy
and so pleased with me.

I’d make perfect speeches.
I would only do what’s best
people would admire me
I would hardly need to rest.

I wouldn’t eat junk
I’d make no mistakes
I’d never talk too much
I’d give what it takes.

I would make my living
doing what I love to do
I’d pray every night
I’d always be true.

I’d solve every problem
I’d help everyone
I’d be a perfect mother
I’d have a perfect son.

I’d always be peaceful
never sad or depressed
I would be spontaneous
I would sing my best.

I’d have a healthy body
I’d do nothing in vain
Failure would not know me
I would not know pain.

I would have perfect vision.
Oh, how nice it’d be to see
how my flaws and faults
perfectly perfect me.
