I'll give every cloud, a silver lining
Every star will be bright and shining
Tawny owl swoop, the howling wolf
Every swimming pool will shiver with excitement
I made the wind blow and the starry heavens hang
I ache from head to toe, I've got blisters on my hands

Oh man I'm painting the moon tonight
Oh man I'm painting the moon tonight

She's been travelling over the plains of Africa
Climbing every mountain, near and far
Near and far, far and near
Oh my love, my love, my Luna is nearly here

Here comes the night, she shimmies across the strand
I've got to get it just right, I've got blisters on my hands

[Spoken]
Ladies and Gentlemen, we present to you tonight, the moon!
Come on, don't be shy

(Oh) Tawny Moon
I'm gonna dance all night with the Tawny Moon

Just a touch of glimmer, mixed with the glow
I will paint the face, that has made the oceans roll
Bright and full, mystical
Oh my love, my love, my Luna I hear you call
She wrote the book of love then threw it away
You better all behave when Luna takes the stage

Oh man look at the moon tonight
Oh man a magical moon tonight

Can you hear, the nightingale, sweetly sigh
She knows precisely why, the unrequited poet cries
She comes she goes, she goes she comes

Oh my love, my love, my Luna queen of Bedlam
Make the woodwind blow and strike up the band
I've got to get it just right
I've got blisters on my hands

Rise and shine Tawny Moon
I'm gonna paint all night with the Tawny Moon
I'm gonna dance all night with the Tawny Moon
