    C - G - Am   - F - G - C

 

                  C         G            Am

1. Well, I'd like to visit the moon

             F                 G              C

    on a rocket ship high in the air,

                 C         G           Am

    yes, I'd like to visit the moon,

              F                  G                 C

    but I don't think I’d like to live there.

                      F                  C               Dm               C

    Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above,

                   F                 C              Dm              C

    I would miss all the places and people that I love.

                 F               C             E            Am

    So although I may like it for one afternoon,

        F                 G                  C

    I don't want to live on the moon.

 

                     C      G             Am

2. I'd like to travel under the sea,

                    F              G                C

    I could meet all the fish everywhere.

                   C      G             Am

    Yes, I'd travel under the sea,

               F                 G                 C

    but I don't think I'd like to live there.

                   F            C            Dm              C

    I might stay for a day there if I had my wish,

                        F                C                    Dm                 C

    but there's not much to do when your friends are all fish.

                 F                 C                E        Am

    And an oyster and clam aren't real family,

              F                 G               C

    so, I don't want to live in the sea.

 

                     F          C                       G       C

+  I'd like to visit the jungle, hear the lions roar,

     F               C                        G       C

    go back in time and meet a dinosaur.

                  F               C                   E            Am

    There's so many strange places I'd like to be,

            F                   G             C

    but none of them permanently.

 

 

 

 

            C            G             Am

3. So if I should visit the moon,

                  F                   G                     C

    well I'd dance on a moonbeam and then

               C         G            Am

    I will make a wish on a star,

                 F               G                  C

    and I'll wish I was home once again.

                      F                  C               Dm               C

    Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above,

                   F                 C               Dm              C

    I would miss all the places and people that I love.

                F                 C             E                   Am

    So although I may go I'll be coming home soon - - -

                    F                 G                 C

    cause I don't want to live on the moon.

               F                  G                C

    No, I don't want to live on the moon.
