Make a tune

man-in-the-moon

La-le-loon, make a tune
devoted to the man in the moon
hoe, hoe, hoe, there’s a show
all now watch, high and low
hex, hex, hex, now make sex
with him or her or with your ex

Atomic war is looming
one industry is booming
a few will shout, very loud,
there’s no way out, no way out
so la-le-loon, make a tune
devoted to the man in the moon

Bombs are falling all around
avert your eyes and make no sound
do not look, there are children dying
do not watch their mothers crying
but la-le-loon make a tune
devoted to the man in the moon

But the moon is a rock and the sun a star
looking too long at them from afar
will eventually make me blind
reality I’ll no longer find
so la-le-loon I make a tune
but not for the man in the moon
