Would You Like To Swing On A Star

Song Video


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 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.

Oh 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.

Oh 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 if then 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
Everyday you 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.

My mother used to sing me this song to make me go to sleep when I was young (I honestly don't remember at what age she stopped, maybe 4?). I just had my first child, and was surprised at how many of the words I remembered when trying to get him to go to sleep. Came here to brush up on the lyrics, thanks a bunch.

I was just singing another old song and I thought of this. I've always wanted to know the lyrics. I always thought it was sending a message of sorts.
