Anticipating a rhyme

Leon Rosselson's song “Flying High, Flying Free” came on, and I don’t know the song, so at the end of these lines:

Butterfly, dragonfly, salmon and seal,

whale and reindeer, cuckoo and eel,

each of them doing the migration dance

I just naturally assumed that the next line would be:

and I’d do it too if I had on my pants.

But alas, it’s really:

and I’d do it too if they’d give me the chance.
