"Monkey In The Moon" as written by Hartwig Schierbaum, Wolfgang Michael Neuhaus and Bernd Goessling....
Once I was so sure, once I was so blind
Wonder what you said if you read my mind
Angel in a car, devil on a cross
Scarecrows in the fields, Jesus on the rocks
Letters in the rain, rabbit on the run
God was made for you, lizards for the sun
Monkey in the moon, I can see you through
Monkey in the moon, this one's made for you


Flower in a word, words without a priest
Wings without a bird, beauty without beast
Signal overkill, trains are overdue
Fool upon a hill, ocean overview
Letters in the rain. . .
Fool upon a hill, trains are overdue
Except what we forgot nothing's really new
Head above the clouds, eyes are opened wide
Windmill burning down, walk into the light
Walk into the light
Monkey in the moon...
Letters in the rain
This one's

    General CommentThis song is popular with some angels who stopped in to treat me to their rendition of a cheap B-movie that I found both delightful and terrifying—but that’s angels for you, I guess.

    They seemed to rock the world of anyone they encountered with their surprises and naturally they were doing all kinds of “look how I’m reading your mind” tricks because well duh, they’re angels. In the strange tale, I was “monkey in the middle” as well as “sister moon” so I suppose monkey in the moon is a blend of both—as they are fond of shorthand. I can’t clearly analyze all of the imagery represented—no big surprise as far as I’m concerned—but much of it is fairly literal. The letters in the rain were letters raining—hundreds if not thousands of them. The running rabbit was the character of Thumper—the concurrent entity representing the guardians of the universe. We had Beauty and her beast, discussion on religion that went past the traditional interpretations, overdue trains and plenty of overkill. Walking into the light couldn’t help but also touch on the “Carolann! Don’t go near the light!” from Poltergeist—angel humor … and they love Spielberg. This one’s made for you had to do with the metamorph peace bringer tale and of course, message understood? Naturally. Love the song.
