F | Bb/F F|  | Bb/F 
Mmm---------------------

F       |                              |C   |
  If you want to write a song about the moon

Dm       F7                     |Bb       |Eb9(no 3rd) |
   Walk along the craters of the afternoon

F                      C6/E
  When the shadows are deep

       |A7            Dm|
And the light is alien

Bb                         |Eb            Edim 
   And gravity leaps like a knife off the pavement

       |F                             |C   
And you want to write a song about the moon

C#dim    |Dm7             F7       |Bb  
      You want to write a spiritual tune

Bdim     |F                   Am/E    |
     Then nah nah nah nah nah nah nah, 

Bbmaj7 F(addG)/A |G7
Yeah,  yeah,      presto

C7sus4               |F
       Song about the moon

 | Bb/F F|  | Bb/F 
Mmm---------------------

F       |                              |C    |
  If you want to write a song about the heart

Dm        F7             |Bb            |Eb9(no 3rd) |
   Think about the moon before you start

F                       C6/E       |A7                  Dm|
  'cause the heart will howl Like a dog in the moonlight

Bb                                 |Eb          Edim 
   And the heart can explode like a pistol on a June night

         |F                             |C    C#dim|
So if you want to write a song about the heart

Dm7          F7           |Bb  
And its ever longing for a counterpart


Bdim     |F                   Am/E    |
     Then nah nah nah nah nah nah nah, 

Bbmaj7 F(addG)/A |
Yeah,  yeah,      

G7        |C7sus4        |F   Bb/F F| Bb/F F|
   Write a song about the moon


Dm7              Fmaj7/C
    The laughing boy

  |Abmaj9     D7
He laughed so hard

  |Gm        D7      |Gm   |
He fell down from his place

Dm7             |Fmaj7/C
    The laughing girl

   |Bbmaj7    A7
She laughed so hard

   |Dm          G9         |C9        |
The tears rolled   down her face, whoa


F      |      Bb/F

  Think about a photograph

         Dm             F7            |Bb         |Eb9(no 3rd) |
That you really can't remember But you can't erase

  Wash your hands in dreams and lightning
