Swing on a Star

Swing on a Star

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 if you don't...........go to school,
You may grow up to be a mule.

Cho. Or would you rather swing on a star,
     Carry moonbeams home in a jar,
     And be better off than you are,
     Or would you rather be a (mule, pig, fish)

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 just plain lazy, and extremely rude,
So if you don't care a feather for a fig,
You may grow up to be a pig.

Cho.
Or would you..

A fish is an animal that swims in a brook.
He can't write his name or read a book.
To fool a fisherman's his only thought
And tho' he's slippery, he's sure to get caught
But then, if that kin of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish.

And all the monkeys aren't in a 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 can be swinging on a star.

From Bing Crosby's singing in "Going My Way"
Recorded by Burl Ives
