swingin' on a star by vampvamp

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

i have decided to dedicate this piece to: cassidy jk – happy anniversary

inspired by the old tune ‘swinging on a star’…but i do like this version:

go bruce! ;)

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
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

Or 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

Or 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
And though he’s slippery, he still gets caught
But then if that sort of life is what you wish
You may grow up to be a fish

And all the monkeys aren’t in the 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 swingin’ on a star

i decided i wanted to mess around with real textures scanned. this is quite what i was after but i do kind like it.
i like the whole whimsical fantasy of it. night, nature, peace, tranquility, the glow of the upper universe… my life is missing a lot of this at the moment.


skies, mule, live, lace, weather, silence, night, monkeys, sky, ground, fish, phoenix, grass, swing, texture, enjoy, nature, swinging, peace, midnight, garden, lay, fantasy, upward, glow, dedicate, weed, fuckers, fabric, moonbeams, moon, happy anniversary, stars, bruce willis, pig, on a star, montage, hudson hawk, clear, better than you are, evening, cassidy jk, cool, more of a man, zoo, galaxy, universe, ashes, rest, skyscape

i consider myself to be creatively versatile.

areas i dabble in … photography, digital art, drawing, manipulations, writing, etc.
