Sesame Street: I Don’t Want to Live on the Moon

This is my very favorite lullaby.  I made sure to learn the all the words when my baby was born.

Well, I’d like to visit the moon
On a rocket ship high in the air.
Yes, I’d like to visit the moon
But I don’t think I’d like to live there.
Though I’d like to look down at the earth from above
I would miss all the places and people I love
So although I might like it for one afternoon
I don’t want to live on the moon.

I’d like to travel under the sea.
I could meet all the fish everywhere.
Yes, I’d travel under the sea
But I don’t think I’d like to live there.
I might stay for a day there if I had my wish
But there’s not much to do when your friends are all fish.
And an oyster and clam aren’t real family
So I don’t want to live in the sea.

I’d like to visit the jungle, hear the lions roar.
Go back in time and meet a dinosaur.
There’s so many strange places I’d like to be
But none of them permanently.

So if I should visit the moon
Well, I’ll dance on a moonbeam and then
I will make a wish on a star
And I’ll wish I was home once again.
Though I’d like to look down at the earth from above
I would miss all the places and people I love.
So although I may go I’ll be coming home soon
‘Cause I don’t want to live on the moon.
No, I don’t want to live on the moon.
