|Alternative Title||First line of text: If the man in the moon had all of the spoons|
VERSE 01: If the man in the moon/Had all of the spoons,/That he sees when he rides out at night,/In his keen devlish mirth,/He could come down to earth,/On a ladder just made of spoons.
CHORUS: The Moon man is kind,/But don’t think him blind,/Altho’ he may seem so far away,/In his high life and whirl,/He may have him a girl,/That’s why he’s so happy and why he’s so gay,/If he sometimes seems shy,/Just watch him hes sly,/For pranks on you/He will try to play,/You may think him asleep,/But be careful he peeps/For he’s naturally built that way./The way.
VERSE 02: Yes you hide in the shadows/When he’s out at night,/To avoid the bright rays of his light,/So be careful what you do,/For he’s peeping at you,/As he winks and he blinks in his flight.
