The moon is mine


yip-ah-ee-ah

no calls, no letters
just fireweeds and stinging nettles

but the moon is mine
yeah the moon is mine

bad news in the papers
bad news for this sinner’s wages

but the moon is mine
yeah the moon is mine

skim a stone across the river
throw all my money in a wishing well
I can’t afford the cost of living
if the price is living hell

wah, no one to call me baby no no
no valentines again

but the moon is mine
yeah the moon is mine

no hook to hang my hat on
no rooms for rent today

but the moon is mine
yeah the moon is mine

skim a stone across the river
throw all my money in a wishing well
I can’t afford the cost of living
if the price is living hell

– guitar solo with vocalise

– vibraphone solo

I used to believe in a glittering prize
but lately i’ve seen
that that’s just a pillow of lies

and the moon is mine
yeah the moon is mine

{slower:}
that beautiful ball of cheese
is my personal property

the moon is…
{in tempo:} mine
the moon is mine
oh the moon is mine
the moon is… mine
