Would You Rather...

Mule wearing a faded hard hat in French Quarter
~New Orleans French Quarter Mule~
Every time that I see a mule, this song plays in my mind.
Have you ever heard it?
"Would you like to swing on a star?
Carry moonbeams home in 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."
Songwriters
JOHNNY BURKE, JAMES VAN HEUSEN

  7. It took me a minute to remember how the tune went, but I couldn't quite remember it all until I clicked on the video. Of course, now I'll be singing that in my head for a while!
