-Rock 'n' Roll Band- Shel Silverstein

If we were a rock 'n' roll band,
We'd travel all over the land
We'd play and we'd sing and wear spangly things,
If we were a rock 'n' roll band.

If we were a rock 'n' roll band,
And we were up there on the stand,
The people would hear us and love us and cheer us,
Hurray for that rock 'n' roll band.

If we were a rock "n' roll band,
Then we'd have a million fans,
We'd giggle and laugh and sign autographs,
If we were a rock 'n' roll band.

If we were a rock 'n' roll band,
The people would all kiss our hands,
We'd be millionaires and have extra long hair,
If we were a rock 'n' roll band.

But we ain't no rock 'n' roll band,
We're just seven kids in the sand
With homemade guitars and pails and jars
And
drums pf potato chip cans.

Just seven kids in the sand,
Talkin' and wavin' our hands,
And dreamin' and thinin' oh wouldn't it be grand,
If we were a rock 'n' roll band.

I love this poem so much because if you love music and you don't necessarily play music, in the back of your head you always want to be in the band, even at the age of seven.

I recited this poem for a talent show in 2nd grade when I was 7 years old. What's funny is that 10 years later I started a punk band that has been touring for almost 20 years now.
