Moon

         Moon

Here comes the moon
The same old moon
That fools the fools
Comes waltzin’ in here
Like he owns the place
I’ve seen this guy
I know his moves
I’d know him anywhere
I know those stars on his wing-tip shoes

The sky is lightning
The air gardenias
And I just came to dance
The rate I’m going
At four for a quarter
It pays to take a chance
The girls look pretty
In the glow of the jukebox
As they dance by the light of the moon
You gotta keep dancing
Or it catches up to you

Come outside
And we’ll drive through the night
With the rain in our hair
Once you go down to Kalia Road
You can smell the sea
We can go out there
Way out where
The breakers roll
Singing ‘Once you have found her
Never let her go’

The moon sits down
Starts telling the bartender
There was a girl
Then his voice trails off
And he looks at me
So I say tell me something
Are you the first prize
Or is it just my luck
You always find me
No matter what

Come outside
And we’ll drive through the night
With the rain in our hair
Once you go down to Kalia Road
You can smell the sea
We can go out there
Way out where
The breakers roll
Singing ‘Once you have found her
Never let her go’
