Swinging On A Star

Bing Crosby

Tom: F
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.
