"Whats Next To The Moon" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
Well I tied my baby to the railroad track
Cannonball down the line
Giving that woman just a one more chance
To give it to me one more time
Engineer wishing he was home in bed
Dreaming about Casey Jones
Wide-eyed woman lookin' a mile ahead
Thinking about broken bones

[Chorus]
It's her love that I want
It's her love that I need
It's her love got to have
It's her love

Heavenly body flying across the sky
Superman was out of town
Come on honey, gotta change your tune
Cause it's a long way down
Clark Kent looking for a free ride
Thinking about Lois Lane
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a suicide
And that'd be a shame

[Chorus]

Long Arm looking for a fingerprint
Trying to find the mystery clue
Hitting me with the third degree
Working on a thumb screw
Alright, officer, I confess
Everything's coming back
I didn't mean to hurt that woman of mine
It was a heart attack

[Chorus]

What's next to the moon?

    General CommentTotally fantastic rock n' roll from AC/DC. My favorite song on their totally overlooked album, Powerage. Powerage is a forgotten classic, and that's a total shame.

    General CommentI think this is one of AC/DC's creepiest songs, right with Night Prowler...but hey, I LOVE both those songs! I think this is about a girl that didn't satisfy her man sexually so he killed her, and when it says "What's next to the moon"..it's the girl from getting hit by the train. And when he get's busted for it he blames it on a heart attack.
