*VERSE1*

           C       C/B       Am    Em
Well, I'd like to visit the moon 
       F           G          C
On a rocket ship high in the air 
          C       C/B       Am     Em
Yes, I'd like to visit the moon 
       F               G             C
But I don't think I'd like to live there 
            F            Fm           C
Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above 
         F             Fm         C
I would miss all the places and people I love 
      F               C         Em       Am
So although I might like it for one afternoon 
   F              G          C
I don't want to live on the moon 



*VERSE2*


              C     C/B      Am    Em
I'd like to travel under the sea 
         F             G       C
I could meet all the fish everywhere 
           C     C/B      Am       Em
Yes, I'd travel under the sea 
       F               G             C
But I don't think I'd like to live there 
         F         Fm           C
I might stay for a day there if I had my wish 
             F          Fm              C
But there's not much to do when your friends are all fish 
         F         C           Em    Am
And an oyster and clam aren't real family 
      F              G          C
So I don't want to live in the sea 



*BRIDGE*


              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             G    Em         Am
There's so many strange places I'd like to be 
     F            G      C
But none of them permanently 



*VERSE3*


      C         C/B      Am      Em
So if I should visit the moon 
             F           G          C
Well, I'll dance on a moonbeam and then 
        C     C/B        Am      Em
I will make a wish on a star 
          F          G          C
And I'll wish I was home once again 
            F            Fm           C
Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above 
         F             Fm         C
I would miss all the places and people I love 
      F           C            Em         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      C/B    Am    Em    F    G     C
No, I don't want to live on the moon
                                    
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Finish by playing the last round of
chords much slower. This song sounds
wonderful when strings are picked
in an order such as:

For C, C/B, Am

--------------------------
--------------------------
--------v-------v---------
------v---v---v---v-------
----v-------v-------------
--------------------------

For Em, F, Fm, G

--------------------------
--------------------------
--------------------------
--------v-------v---------
------v---v---v-----------
----v-------v-------------

Also, drop the Em if you like (all
throughout the song). To me it
sounds right, it fills in the gap
between chords, to others it may
not. Whichever is easier for you.

Seeing as though tabs for this song
are so rare and hard to find, I
hope that this helps *someone*

Enjoy.
