Mister Moon from The Show, directed by Mitch Jenkins. You know what, I think I have the full unbroadcast/unpublished lyrics to that one. Consider this a world first…
Me and my friend Mr. Moon, people say we make the perfect pair.
Even when we're out of tune, we're so debonair they just don't care.
Me and my friend Mr. Moon, we're so very versatile besides.
He can shine while I can croon, I can strum while he directs the tides.
Why can't those Russians and Americans just all agree that he stays with me.
Oh, me and my friend Mr. Moon, he can shine while I can croon!
Me and my friend Mr. Moon, I don't think we get along too bad.
We don't rise till afternoon. We both wane and both send people mad.
Me and my friend Mr. Moon guide migrating oyster-shoals from space…
We both look good in lagoons. We both have a dark and hidden face…
If only everyone beneath the sun could comprehend that I'm his best friend.
Oh, me and my friend Mr. Moon we both look good in lagoons!
And one that I have never heard performed or recorded but stays in my head on a peppercorn rent. Symphony Of The Terraces by Alan Moore and Steve Parkhouse from The Bojeffries Saga.
As Alan Moore wrote, "it is breakfast time and the streets are alive with the sound of muesli."
Happy birthday Alan, Love the songs, whether performed, recorded or just in my head.
