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 XX OCT98
