I SAW

AS I WANDERED AROUND
THIS BEAUTIFUL STATE
I SAW HILLS AND PRAIRIES
FORESTS AND LAKES

I SAW CREATURES BIG
I SAW CREATURES SMALL
THROUGH SPRING AND SUMMER
WINTER AND FALL


I SAW AN OTTER IN ORR
AND A BEAR IN BAUDETTE
I SAW A MUSKRAT IN MILROY
WHO ANSWERS TO CHET

I SAW A SKUNK IN ST. PAUL
SO PRETTY AND YET
ONE LIFT OF ITS’ TAIL
YOU’LL LIKELY REGRET

I SAW A MOOSE UP IN MIZPAH
MAJESTIC AND PROUD
I SAW A RABBIT IN REDWING
AS SOFT AS A CLOUD

I SAW A BOBCAT IN BACKUS
A BADGER IN BOYD
I SAW A CHIPMUNK IN CHASKA
WHY THAT'S MRS. FLOYD

I SAW A COUGAR IN COKATO
A COYOTE IN CROSS LAKE
I SAW A GROUNDHOG IN GRAND RAPIDS
DIGGING HOLES FOR GOODNESS SAKE


I SAW A GRAY WOLF IN BIWABIK
A RACCOON IN ROLLINGSTONE
I SAW A PORCUPINE IN PRIOR LAKE
WITH A FAMILY OF HER OWN

I SAW ONE MORE FRIENDLY CREATURE
A GOPHER SMALL AND FAST
MINNESOTA’S OWN STATE ANIMAL
WAS SPOTTED IN THE GRASS

SO KEEP YOUR EYES AND EARS WIDE OPEN
AND SEE WHAT YOU CAN SEE
FOR IF YOU SEE WHAT I SAW
HOW MUCH FUN YOUR DAY WOULD BE
