I went to the conservatory of flowers early in the fall
When the weather is so clear and nice here
When the troubles of summer seem worth null
And I got lost in winding pathways, I got lost winding through the trees
Found myself at the bison pen just watching the buffalo in the breeze

And it had been a pretty hard year, but still I felt calm and relaxed
And I thought about the way you treat me, and I thought about you and that and this
And I thought that what I really needed was a life of expectations gone
And I thought about the way to get it, and I thought on and on and on

And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that
And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that

And again in the middle of springtime, found myself at the lonely bison pen
Thought about what a good life it would be, sitting in the field with all my friends
Wouldn't have to worry about nothing, just getting my three meals every day
Wouldn't have to worry about what you thought, just sit around and come what may

And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that
And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that

And now whenever I'm at my worst, I find my way back to the park
Sit and watch the buffalo play, sit around while the world gets slowly dark
And now there's nothing that I wouldn't give just to live my life like one of them
Wouldn't have to worry about nothing, wouldn't have to worry about being content

And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that

And I wish that I didn't like you or I wish that you might like me back
And I wish I was a buffalo so I wouldn't have to worry about all that

And I wish I was a buffalo
And I wish I was a buffalo
And I wish I was a buffalo
And I wish I was a buffalo
And I wish I was a buffalo
And I wish I was a buffalo
