This or That

I'd rather be a house than a shack
I'd rather be alone than in a pack
I'd rather be Zoey than Zack
I'd rather be lunch than a snack
I'd rather be purple than black
I'd rather be in a clump than in a stack
I'd rather be in a pool than on the track
I'd rather be a hole than a crack
I'd rather be a sit-up than a jumping jack
I'd rather be a dog than a yak
I'd rather be a shelf than a rack
I'd rather be tape than a tack
I'd rather be at peace than attack
I'd rather be silent than clack
I'd rather be a kiss than a smack
I'd rather be a shirt than a slack
I'd rather be a potato than sack
I'd rather be in Ottawa than in Pres du Lac
I'd rather be a maple than a sumac
I'd rather be a knick than a knack!
