"Song About The Moon" as written by and Paul Simon....
If you want to write a song about the moon
Walk along the craters in the afternoon
When the shadows are deep and the light is alien
And gravity leaps like a knife off the pavement
And you want to write a song about the moon
You want to write a spiritual tune
Na na na na na na
Yeah yeah yeah
Presto, a song about the moon

If you want to write a song about the heart
Think about the moon before you start
Cause the heart will howl like a dog in the moonlight
And the heart can explode like a pistol on a June night
So if you want to write a song about the heart
And its ever-longing for a counterpart
Na na na na na na
Yeah yeah yeah
Write a song about the moon

Laughing boy laughed so hard
He fell down from his place
Laughing girl she laughed so hard
Tears rolled down her face
Wo wo
Don't look at her

If you want to write a song about a face
That you really can't remember but you can't erase
Oh wo
Wash your hands and dreams and dreams and lightning
Cut off your hair and whatever is frightening
If you want to write a song about a face
If you want to write a song about the human race
Na na na na na na
Yeah yeah yeah
Write a song about the moon

Oh oh oh oh oh oooo

You want to write a song about the moon
If you want to write a spiritual tune
Na na na na na na
Yeah yeah yeah
Then do it!
Write a song about the moon
