[Verse 1]
D                          G                  D
If I were a butterfly, I’d thank you Lord for giving me wings
D                                E                   A7
If I were a robin in a tree, I’d thank you Lord that I could sing
D           D7                   G
If I were a fish in the sea, I’d wiggle my tail and I’d giggle with glee
      A              A7                D  G  D
But I just thank you Father for making me

[Chorus]
        D
For you gave me a heart and you gave me a smile
    G
You gave me Jesus and you made me your child
      A                                D  G  D
And I just thank you Father for making me

[Verse 2]
D                         G                  D
If I were an elephant I’d thank you Lord by raising my trunk 
D                         E                  A7
If I were a kangaroo, I’d just hop right up to you 
D            D7           G
If I were an octopus, I’d thank you Lord for my fine looks 
      A              A7                D  G  D
But I just thank you Father for making me 

[Verse 3]
D                            G               D
If I were a wiggly worm, I’d thank you Lord that I could squirm
D                          E                  A7
If I were a crocodile, I’d thank you Lord for my great big smile
D            D7                    G
If I were a fuzzy, wuzzy bear, I’d thank you Lord for my fuzzy, wuzzy hair
      A              A7                D  G  D
But I just thank you Father for making me

***sorry it didn't keep my spacing if anyone knows how to edit and keep intended chord spacing pls let me know
standard tuning hit transpose down 2, will change to key of C for these corrections done for standard tuning
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imO2NiKo_AQ (play along) :)

1.) for the following lines change the D ~~> D minor and G7 ~~> G

"If I was a robin in a tree"
"If I were a kangaroo I'd just hop right up to you"
"If I were a crocodile I'd thank you Lord for my big smile"

2.) I did this by ear and my child's ear lol but we play it like this for
the last lines of the verses and chorus...going into a chorus vs. going into a verse is a little different so I listed all of the similar lines
**Counts: I tried to specify to help w strum pattern(1+ 2+ 3+ 4+)

end VERSE 1 ~~> CHORUS: (1+ 2+ (3 +) (4 +) (1+.....)
G Dm G C G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me..........for you gave me"

end of CHORUS ~~> VERSE 2: (1+ 2+) (3+) (4+) (1+...2+..)
G Dm G C F G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me.................. If I were"

end VERSE 2 ~~> CHORUS: (1+ 2+ (3 +) (4 +) (1+.....)
G Dm G C G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me..........for you gave me"

end of CHORUS ~~> VERSE 3: (1+ 2+) (3+) (4+) (1+...2+..)
G Dm G C F G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me.................. If I were"

end VERSE 3 ~~> CHORUS: (1+ 2+ (3 +) (4 +) (1+.....)
G Dm G C G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me..........for you gave me"

end of CHORUS ~~> REPEAT CHORUS (1+ 2+ (3 +) (4 +) (1+.....)
G Dm G C G C
"But I just thank you father for making me me..........for you gave me"

3.) we also change the first line occasionally to mix it up

C F B? F
If I were a butterfly, I?d thank you Lord for giving me wings

C F B? F
If I were an elephant I?d thank you Lord by raising my trunk

C F B? F
If I were a wiggly worm, I?d thank you Lord that I could squirm
