Want To Swing On A Star? Of Course That Depends On What You Are!

This song rhymes all the way through. So of course a rendition I had to do. Surprised it took me this long to give a go. So high time I gave it a run at my show. As you will swing on a star unless an animal you are, then you may not get very far. Could even end up covered in tar. But on with the show and hopefully you aren't any, at least fully, of the animals below. Especially not the last because his craziness is vast.

Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Or would you rather be a duck.

A duck is an animal that likes to swim,
He keeps his legs incredibly trim.
When gambling his brains seem lacking,
As he falls for a hunters quacking.
So if you like to push your luck,
You may grow up to be a duck.

Or would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Or would you rather be a platypus.

A platypus is an animal with many features,
It watches life from the bleachers.
Once in a while dropping its bill,
As it seeks out a thrill.
So if you hate spat rumpus,
You may grow up to be a platypus.

Or would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Or would you rather be a camel.

A camel is an animal that likes to spit.
Rides it tends to permit.
He rides over the bumps,
Providing safety in his humps.
So if you're a red blooded mammal,
You may grow up to be a camel.

Or would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Or would you rather be a kangaroo.

A kangaroo is an animal that likes to hop,
Keeping its young locked away like a cop.
He tends to grouch,
If they try and leave the pouch.
So if the restrictions ensue,
You may grow up to be a kangaroo.

Or would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Or would you rather be the cat.

The cat is an animal that can rhyme,
With each and every chime.
Can easily go on the attack,
Or show off his bush with a crack.
So if you have an inkling for rat,
You may grow up to be a cat.

Would you like to swing on a star,
Carry moon beams home in a jar.
And be better off than you are.
Not coming across as too bizarre.
Like a wall singing bass,
Or even my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  2. I love animals of all kinds
    Especially of a cat that chimes
    But not those that hiss or roar
    Would not go to them that near

  5. Your rhyme today I did sing
    I sure remember it was Bing
    When I really used to have a fling
    I am surprised it still brings bling

    It was the war years it got zing
    When playing golf the putters got ping
    I even teach a cha cha class
    To this tune and you wiggle your little rhyming (and you know
    what rhymes with class.

      If you want it to come to pass

    1. That sounds grand
      A spoiled mutt at your land
      Just avoid the usual traps
      Like sniffing butts that gets bad raps haha

    2. Smelling butts I would not bother
      A puppy girl, lady-like and proper
      With a pink bow on my head
      Always happy, never sad :)

    3. That sound fine
      To this feline
      Just looking all prim and proper
      Being quite the show stopper

  7. I wouldn't mind swinging on a star
    to look down on earth from afar
    It would put things in perspective
    show me how to live and let live
    that dream would really raise the bar!

    1. Yeah would be interesting to come due
      Be quite the view
      As long as a spacesuit came due
      Or you'd be quite blue

  9. Instead of turning into some animal
    or even a crazy cannibal
    I'll take the jar of moonbeams!
    That would be happier, it seems.
    And wishing upon a star
    instead of swinging on it from afar!

    1. Geez no fun
      Playing it safe under your sun
      But I guess with all the jars at your sea
      You would just add it to the collection of thee

      Delete
    2. yeah, I don't want to turn into a goof
      I need to keep watch over the fountain of youth!
      Especially if you're up in space
      swinging from a star by that zebra disgrace.
      hahahaha

    3. hahaha well the zebra willkeep me safe
      Even if it does start to chafe

    5. haha might be dead
      As they lop off my head

    6. Don't let it aim for your head!
      That would cause too much dread.
      Let them have your bum arm
      That will cause less alarm!
      hahaha.

      Delete
    7. haha that might work
      Maybe it will whack the arm back to good and be a perk

  10. As I look at the sky from afar
    I love the thought of swinging on a star
    Looking at the moonbeam whilst I swing
    Would surely make me want to sing

    1. And that would be grand
      As one swung across the land
      As long as you could land in sand
      Otherwise might be better to stare and stand

  11. I could see this as a child's book (except for the last line of course :)

    I'd love to swing on a star sometime; always enjoy looking up at them and seeing them shine :)

    1. Yeah could easily work as a book
      But then I'd get sued at my nook
      haha and have to avoid the last word
      Woul be fun to swing on them like a bird

  12. I read this like a song (an old one) but

  24. Very cool, really like the pattern here. Love the chorus repeating changing the ending then spawning off it's own stanza. Very creative Pat, but nothing less will do from the cat, where even the site banner changes once again a little zorro action I see, nice cartoon graphics for thee
