YOU MAY GROW UP TO BE A MULE. . .

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, 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 SO IF YOU DON'T GO TO SCHOOL, YOU MAY
GROW UP TO BE A MULE.
