Would You Like to Swing 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
He kicks up at anything he hears.
His back is brawny and his brain is weak
He’s just plain stupid with a stubborn streak.
So by the way if you hate to go to school
You might grow up to be a mule
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 give a feather or a fig
You might grow up to be a pig
Or would you rather be a FISH
A fish don’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 get’s caught.
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You might grow up to be a fish.
And all the monkeys aren’t in the zoo
Every day I see quite a few
So you see it’s all up to you
You could be better than you are
You could be swinging on a star
