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 mule? A mule is an animal with long funny ears Kicks up at anything he hears His back is brawny but 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 Or 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? A pig is an animal with dirt on his face His shoes are a terrible disgrace He has no manners when he eats his food He's fat and lazy and extremely rude But if you don't care a feather or a fig You may grow up to be a pig Or 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 fish? A fish won't do anything, but swim in a brook He can't write his name or read a book To fool the people is his only thought And though he's slippery, he still gets caught But then if that sort of life is what you wish You may grow up to be a fish A new kind of jumped-up slippery fish And all the monkeys aren't in the zoo Every day you meet quite a few So you see it's all up to you You can be better than you are You could be swingin' on a star ***** À TOI DE CHOISIR Titre original: "Swinging On A star" (Jacques Plante / Jimmy Van Heusen, 1964) Richard Anthony Ma petite sœur bien aimée - oh oh oh Viens un peu ici m'écouter - oh oh oh Je t'aime bien mais tu me désoles - oh oh oh Car tu ne fais rien à l'école ! À toi de choisir ce que tu veux devenir - ah oui alors Quelqu'un dont on parle et qu'on admire - tout à fait d'accord Ou simplement un petit animal qui ne sait rien et qui se tient très mal Mais si tu prends la première solution - oui bien sûr Tu dois apprendre tes leçons - je ne veux pas apprendre les leçons Ma petite sœur bien aimée - oui oui Prends conseil de ton frère aîné - je veux bien je veux bien Pour trouver plus tard un mari - oh j'ai le temps Faut savoir la géométrie - menteur À toi de choisir ce que tu veux devenir Mais il faut bûcher pour réussir - à qui le dis-tu Savoir les chefs lieux des départements - tu le sais toi Et conjuguer un verbe à tout les temps Si l'on voyait que tu comptes sur tes doigts - comme toi Tous tes copains riraient de toi - tu parles ils font tous comme moi Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Oh oh oh Mais si tu fais bien tes devoirs Tu n'as pas de crainte à avoir Le succès te tendra les bras Et moi je serai fier de toi - oh oh oh Et moi je serai fier de toi - oh oh oh Et moi je serai fier de toi - oh oh oh
