For those who happen to be unhappy with their current circumstances .... a question ...

"Or would you rather be a .... ?


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.
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,
You may 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?

A pig is an animal with dirt on his face.
His shoes are a terrible disgrace.
He ain't got 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

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,
And to fool the people is his only thought.
Though he's slippery - he still gets caught
But if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish.

And all the monkeys aren't in a 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 swinging on a star,

Or would you rather be a Member ??

I think I'd rather be a dog. Everyone would take care of me, love me, take me for walks, and I could just sit around all day. Or I could play with my balls or my bones or bark at the mailman or just look out the window. I'd have no worries about when to use an apostrophe or whether my report was grammatical or what the definition of nisgul is. My goal in life would be to keep my master happy. I'd lick his/her face and wag my tail and let him/her pet me.

Yep, I'd rather be a dog.

Jerry, I've always loved that song! Thanks for posting it. That reminds me that we should revive link the lyrics again.
