Swinging on a Star

Would you like to swing on a star

Carry moonbeams home in a jar

And be better off than you are

Or would you rather be a mule



A mule is an animal with long funny ears

Kicks up at anything he hears

His back is brawny but his brain is weak

He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak

And by the way, if you hate to go to school

You may grow up to be a mule



Or would you like to swing on a star

Carry moonbeams home in a jar

And be better off than you are

Or would you rather be a pig



A pig is an animal with dirt on his face

His shoes are a terrible disgrace

He has no manners when he eats his food

He's fat and lazy and extremely rude

But if you don't care a feather or a fig

You may grow up to be a pig



Or would you like to swing on a star

Carry moonbeams home in a jar

And be better off than you are

Or would you rather be a fish



A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook

He can't write his name or read a book

To fool the people is his only thought

And though he's slippery, he still gets caught

But then if that sort of life is what you wish

You may grow up to be a fish



A new kind of jumped up slippery fish



And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo

Every day you meet quite a few

So you see it's all up to you

You can be better than you are

You could be swingin' on a star
