I Would Like You for a Comrade

I would like you for a comrade, for I love you, that I do,

I never met a little calf as amiable as you;

I would teach you how to dance and sing and how to talk and laugh,

If I were not a little girl and you were not a calf.

I would like you for a comrade; you should share my barley meal,

And butt me with your little horns just hard enough to feel;

We would lie beneath the chestnut trees and watch the leaves uncurl,

If I were not a clumsy calf and you a little girl.
