If I Could Choose . . .

If I could choose to be any place in the world,
I would choose Malaysia where my grandma lives;
Where you can smell the hot, humid air,
And see the palm trees sway in the breeze.

If I could choose to be any place in the world,
I would choose Australia where my granduncle lives;
Where the wind makes sand fly
And where all the animals are unique.

If I could choose to be any place in the world,
I would choose Singapore, where my cousins live;
Where everybody is welcoming to visitors,
And they all have wonderful things to say.

If I could choose to be any place in the world,
I wouldn’t care where it was.
Whether it was hot and dry,
Whether it was cold and wet,
I would choose to be any place in the world,
As long as I could be with my family.
