"Watching And Waiting" as written by and Ray/hayward Thomas....
Watching and waiting
For a friend to play with
Why have I been alone so long
Mole he is burrowing his way to the sunlight
He knows there's some there so strong

'Cause here there's lot of room for doing
The thing you've always been denied
Look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying

Soon you will see me
'Cause I'll be all around you
But where I come from I can't tell
But don't be alarmed by my fields and my forests
They're here for only you to share

'Cause here there's lot of room for doing
The things you've always been denied
So look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying

Watching and waiting
For someone to understand me
I hope it won't be very long

    My InterpretationI always felt that the song was being sung by God, the creator [my fields and my forests], to tell how he yearned for someone to understand him and that that someone would be man, just as the mole had come out of the ground upward man would arrive, too.
