Who I'd Be is one of the songs from Shrek the Musical.

Lyrics

Shrek the Musical

Shrek:

I guess I'd be a hero  

With sword and armor clashing

Looking semi dashing

A shield within my grip  


Or else I'd be a viking

And live a life of daring

While smelling like a herring

Upon a viking ship  


I'd sail away, I'd see the world

I'd reach the farthest reaches

I'd feel the wind, I'd taste the salt and sea

And maybe storm, some beaches

That's who I'd be, that's who I'd be  


Or I could be a poet

And write a different story

One that tells of glory

And wipes away the lies  


And to the skies I'd throw it

The stars would do the telling

The moon would help with spelling

And night would dot the 'I's  


I'd write my verse, recite a joke

It'd fit in perfect timing

I'd share my heart, confess the things I yearn

And do it all while rhyming

But we all learn, but we all learn  


An ogre always hides

An ogre's fate is known

And ogre always stays

In the dark and all alone  


So yes, I'd be a hero

And if my wish were granted

Life would be enchanted

Or so the stories say  


Of course I'd be a hero

And I would scale a tower

And save a hung-house flower

And carry her away  


But standing guard there'd be a beast

I'd somehow overwhelm it

I'd get the girl, I'd take my breath

And I'd remove my helmet  


We'd stand and stare, we'd speak of love

We'd feel the stars ascending

We'd share a kiss, I'd find my destiny  


I'd have a hero's ending

A perfect happy ending

That's how it would be

A big bright beautiful world

But not for me


Shrek, Fiona and Donkey:

An ogre always hides

An ogre's fate is known

And ogre always stays

In the dark, you're all alone, all alone


So yes, I'd be a hero and if my wish were granted

(And I know he'll appear)

Life would be enchanted or so the stories say

('Cause there are rules and there are strictures)


Of course I'd be a hero and I would scale a tower

(I believe a storybooks I read)

And save a hot-house flower and carry her away

(By candlelight)


A perfect happy ending

That's how it should be
