If you want to write a song about the moon
Walk along the craters of 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
Then nah nah, nah nah nah nah, 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
Because 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 it's ever longing for a counterpart
Then nah nah, nah nah nah nah, yeah yeah yeah
Write a song about the moon

The laughing boy, he laughed so hard
He fell down from his place
The laughing girl, she laughed so hard
The tears rolled down her face

Hey songwriter, if you want to write a song about a face
Think about a photograph
That you really can't remember but you can't erase
Wash your hands in 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
Then nah nah, nah nah nah nah, yeah yeah yeah
Write a song about the moon

If you want to write a song about the moon
You want to write a spiritual tune
Nah nah, nah nah nah nah, yeah yeah yeah, then do it
Write a song about the moon
