Don’t be stubborn.

“Swinging on a Star” is an old Bing Crosby song that my grandfather used to sing to my cousins and I when we were growing up. Have manners.

His shoes are a terrible disgrace Did I really listen to that?! (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, He's got no manners when he eats his food, A fish won't do anything but swim in a brook, And though he's slippery he still gets caught, But then if that sort of life is what you want, Writer(s): James Van Heusen, Johnny Burke, Que Será, Será (Whatever Will Be, Will Be), Haris Alexiou - Το τανγκό της Νεφέλης (To tangó tis Nefélis), My Chemical Romance - Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us. Be honest. 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. Shaking and swinging on a star With our hands up high over mountains we fly. If you do all of those things, you’ll swing on a star. "You could be better than you are, you could be swinging on star".

If you do all of those things, you’ll swing on a star. And by the way, if you hate to go to school (You may grow up to be a mule)

Have manners.
