The Woman in The Moon Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was warned as a child of thirteen, not to act too strong
Try to look like you belong but don't push, girl
Save your time and trouble, don't misbehave

I was raised in a 'No you don't' world, overrun with rules
Memorize your lines and move as directed
That's an age old story, everybody knows that's a worn out song

But you and I are changing that tune
We're learning new rhythms from the woman
I said, "The woman in the moon"

Little sister and little brother, keep on pushin'
Don't believe a word about things you heard about
Askin' too much too soon, hey hey hey

'Cause they can hold back the tide
But they can never hold the woman in the moon

I believe there's a best of both worlds, mixing old and new
Recognizing change is seldom expected

As I long suspected, they believed that strange was a word for wrong
Well, not in my song 'cause you, you and I are changing that tune
We're learning the rhythms from that woman in the moon

Now little sister and little brother, keep on pushin'
Don't believe a word about things you heard about
Askin' too much too soon, hey hey hey hey

'Cause they can hold back the tide
But they can never hold the woman
I said, "The woman in the moon"
