Maureen Mcgovern — Swingin' On A Star lyrics

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
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?
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/maureen-mcgovern-swingin-on-a-star-lyrics.html ]
A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's got 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

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

Doo doo doo doo doo doo, ow!
