Swingin' On A A Star

E7 E7 A7 A7
Would you like to swing on a star
D7 D7 G G
carry moonbeams home in a jar
E7 E7 A7 A7
and be better off than you are
D7 D7 G G
or would you rather be a Mule

G G C C G G C C
A A mule is an animal with long funny ears
G G C C G G
he kicks up at anything he hears
A7 A7 D7 D7
His back is brawny but his brain is weak
A7 A7 D7 D7
he's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak
G G C C G G E7 E7
and by the way if you hate to go to school
A7 A7 D7 D7 G G
You may grow up to be a mule

E7 E7 A7 A7
Would you like to swing on a star
D7 D7 G G
carry moonbeams home in a jar
E7 E7 A7 A7
and be better off than you are
D7 D7 G G
or would you rather be a Pig

G G C C G G C C
A A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
G G C C G G
his shoes are a terrible disgrace
A7 A7 D7 D7
He has no manners when he eats his food
A7 A7 D7 D7
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
G G C C G G E7 E7
But if you don't care a feather or a fig
A7 A7 D7 D7 G G
you may grow up to be a pig

E7 E7 A7 A7
Would you like to swing on a star
D7 D7 G G
carry moonbeams home in a jar
E7 E7 A7 A7
and be better off than you are
D7 D7 G G
or would you rather be a Fish

G G C C G G C C
A A fish won't do anything but swim in a brook
G G C C G G
he can't write his name or read a book
A7 A7 D7 D7
to fool the people is his only thought
A7 A7 D7 D7
and though he's slippery he still gets caught
G G C C G G E7 E7
but then if that sort of life is what you wish
A7 A7 D7 D7 G G
you may grow up to be a fish

E7 E7 A7 A7
And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo
D7 D7 G G
everyday you see quite a few
E7 E7 A7 A7
so you see it's all up to you,
D7 D7 E7 E7
you can be better than you are
A7 A7 D7 D7 G G
you can be swinging on a star

instead of repeating A7 D7 in the verse, do A7 D, then A7 D7
