Moonshadow

OK, I know this shows my age a bit but I always loved the music of Cat Stevens.  I even drew a portrait of him back in the 70’s!  Moomshadow was always one of my favorite songs.  It’s short and simple but it seems to me that if I can sing this, I can keep a good outlook on life.

MOONSHADOW by Cat Stevens

Yes, I’m bein’ followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
And if I ever lose my hands
Lose my power, lose my land
Oh, if I ever lose my hands
Ooh, I won’t have to work no more
And if I ever lose my eyes
If my colors all run dry
Yes, if I ever lose my eyes
Ooh, I won’t have to cry no more
Yes, I’m bein’ followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
And if I ever lose my legs
I won’t moan and I won’t beg
Oh, if I ever lose my legs
Ooh, I won’t have to walk no more
And if I ever lose my mouth
All my teeth north and south
Yes, if I ever lose my mouth
Ooh, I won’t have to talk
“Did it take long to find me?”
I asked the faithful light
“Oh, did it take long to find me
And are you gonna stay the night?”
I’m bein’ followed by a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Leapin’ und hoppin’ on a moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
Moon shadow, moon shadow
