Carmen Osbahr: Well, I'd like to visit the moon
On a rocket ship high in the air
Rosita: 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

Carmen Osbahr: 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
Carmen Osbahr, Max, Rosita and Abby: No, I don't want to live on the moon

    This song means everything to me. I grew up with it as a kid and now that i am a young adult it reminds me that i will never be satisfied seeking after anything unless i am doing it with and in "the people and places i love. " who would have thought that a song written for children could have such a simple yet profound impact?
