This song was originally performed by Bing Crosby in the movie Going My Way (I think... it's a little out of my time frame!) It won an academy award in 1944 for Best Original Song. It was written by Johnny Burke and Jimmy Van Heusen.

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?

My grandpa used to sing this song to me all the time when I was younger. It's funny how I never really thought about it until my grandpa started to get sick... I had always thought we would dance to this song at my wedding, but now he's on an oxygen tank and doesn't get around too well. The song will always remind me of him, even if we don't get that dance at my wedding.
