I wish I loved the Human Race

I wish I loved the Human Race;
I wish I loved its silly face;
I wish I liked the way it walks;
I wish I liked the way it talks;
And when I'm introduced to one,
I wish I thought "What Jolly Fun!"

human race: all people
silly: foolish; ridiculous
jolly: entertaining

Professor Sir Walter Alexander Raleigh (1861-1922)
