Swingin on a Star Lyrics

by Frank Sinatra

Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Would you rather be a fish?

A fish is an animal that swims in a brook
He can't write a poem or read a book
To fool the people is his only thought
Though he's slippery he still gets caught

And by the way if you don't clean up your dish
You may grow up to be a fish

Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
And be better off than you are
Would you rather be a mule?

A mule is an animal with long funny ears
Kicks up at everything 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

Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in a jar
[Incomprehensible] off than you are
Would you rather be a pig?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's sloppy and he's dirty
And he's grungy and fun
When he talks all he does is grunt

And if you don't carry a feather or a fig
You may grow up to be a pig

And all the monkeys ain't in the zoo
Every day you'll see quite a few
So you see it's all up to you
You could be better than you are
You could be swinging on a star
You could be swinging on a star
You could be swinging on a star
