Beneath the bebop moon
I want to croon - with you
Beneath the Mambo Sun
I got to be the one - with you.

My life's a shadowless horse
If I can't get across - to you
In the alligator rain
My hearts all pain - for you.

Girl, you're good
And I've got wild knees - for you
On a mountain range
I'm Dr. Strange - for you.

Upon a savage lake
Make no mistake - I love you
I got a powder-keg leg
and my wig's all pooped - for you.

With my hat in my hand
I'm a hungry man - for you
I got stars in my beard
and I feel real weird - for you.

Beneath the bebop moon
I'm howling like a loon - for you.
Beneath the mambo sun
I've got to be the one - for you.

Oh, take me!
Ah, yeah. Ah!
Oh - please - come - oh woah.

    General CommentI don't think it's about being in love with a specific person, or about a person at all... more an idea. I think people too often trivialize his lyrics, something he even commented on and seemed offended by. "My life's a shadowless horse if I can't get across to you"... Seems more about constructing this beautiful, absurd vision and the song is more about the journey to find or create it (beebop moon, powder keg legs, alligator rain, and all).
