Sesame Street – Visit The Moon lyrics

Well I'd like to visit the moon,
On a rocket ship high in the air.
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 wanna live on the moon.

I'd like to travel under 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 wanna live in the sea.

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

    It means that home is where the heart is. You must always keep your home in your heart. No matter where you are and where you go, you must remember where you come from. Where you come from is where you'll always be from and nothing, absolutely nothing, can change that. For example, sure, you want to visit the moon, but you definitely don't want to live there with a bunch of random aliens. You sure want to dive to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean, but fish and clams aren't at all a good family. They wouldn't talk to and understand you, the way people do. That's why home is the best place to be and that's why you shouldn't live on the moon or under the sea. So remember, no matter where you are or where you go, the place you come from will always be home. And who would've thought this song held such a deep meaning and moral after being sung on 'Sesame Street'? The kids wouldn't have understood it, of course, but next time your child watches it, explain it to them. After all, they're intelligent things you know.
