Ep. 56″Swinging on a Star”

· Turns out, all the Monkeys Aren't in the Zoo ·

Mar, 01, 2021

A Giggle-Along Song from April Eight’s childhood, “Swinging on a Star”. A funny old-fashioned tune, with a few updated lyrics. Featuring my ukulele! The chorus is:

“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?”

music composed by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke

We just love your stories. I’ve heard other nice children’s storytellers, but none of them have such a sweet voice or such a lovely cadence, not to mention such beautiful and imaginative content as you!
