Swinging On A Star

( Johnny Burke and Jimmy Van Heusen)

	  
F7         E7                A7 
Would you like to swing on a star 
        D7                 G     F7 
Carry moonbeams home in a jar 
         E7                A7   D7        
And be better off than you are  
                          G 
Or would you rather be a mule 
   G         C            G          C                       
A mule is an animal with long funny ears 
G            C           G        Em7 
Kicks up at anything he hears 
     A7                      D                               
His back is brawny but his brain is weak 
       Em7         A7            D       D7  
He's just plain stupid with a stubborn streak.  
            G            C              G    F7    E7   Am7 
And by the way, if you hate to go to school      
             D7          G 
You may grow up to be a mule.  
   F7         E7                A7 
Or would you like to swing on a star 
      D7                  G     F7 
Carry moonbeams home in a jar  
        E7                 A7   D7        
And be better off than you are  
                            G 
Or would you rather be a pig 
   G         C            G          C 
A pig is an animal with dirt on his face  
     G            C          G        Em7 
His shoes are a terrible disgrace  
    A7                     D                                      
He has no manners when he eats his food 
     Em7      A7       D         D7 
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude  
            G            C            G   F7   E7 Am7  
But if you don't care a feather or a fig           
            D7          G 
You may grow up to be a pig 
     F7         E7                A7                 
Or would you like to swing on a star 
        D7                   G     F7 
Carry moonbeams home in a jar 
        E7                 A7   D7        
And be better off than you are  
                            G 
Or would you rather be a fish  
   G              C            G           C 
A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook  
     G              C              G        Em7       
He can't write his name or read a book 
   A7                     D 
To fool the people is his only thought 
     Em7         A7            D         D7                     
And though he's slippery, he still gets caught 
           G            C                G    F7    E7   Am7 
But then if that sort of life is what you wish  
             D7          G                  
You may grow up to be a fish   
        F7       E7                   A7 
And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo 
       D7                   G     F7          
Every day you meet quite a few 
         E7                 A7   D7 
So you see it's all up to you   
                            G   G/F#  Em A7 
You can be better than you are         
                D7            G 
You could be swingin' on a star
