Songtekst

Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
(One moonbeam, two moonbeams)
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a mule?
(Yeah, yeah, tell 'em 'bout a mule now)
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
And by the way, if you hate to go to school (Which I do),
You may grow up to be a mule
(I don't wanna grow up to be a mule)
Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
And be better off than you are
Or would you rather be a pig?
(Yeah, yeah, tell 'em 'bout a pig now)
A pig is an animal with dirt on his face
His shoes are a terrible disgrace
He's got no manners when he eats his food (Nor you, farmer)
He's fat and lazy and extremely rude
But if you don't care a feather or a fig (Which I don't),
You may grow up to be a pig
(I don't wanna grow up to be a pig)

Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moonbeams home in a jar?
(One moonbeam, two moonbeams)
And be better off than you are,
We could be swinging on a star
We could be swinging on a star
We could be swinging on a, mm-mm-mm
We could be swinging on a star
We could be swinging on a star
We could be swinging on a...

Songinformatie

Uiteindelijk zou Iwan Groeneveld (die we beter kennen als Spooky) niet helemaal zingen op "Swinging On A Star": dat werd overgelaten aan Big John Russell, samen met Sue Chaloner. Spooky ging wel touren met Sue, want de vrouw van Big John Russell liet niet toe dat manlief met Sue op tour ging.
