Song Description

It seems like nobody has any time to do the things they want to do. It's hard to find time to enjoy little kids before they grow up, and it's just as hard to find the time to visit with parents and grandparents before they're dead! This song tells peopl

Story Behind the Song

The older I get, the more I appreciate life. I enjoy my kids and their kids, my husband,my parents, my garden, music & art, and life in general. The hardest thing to do is slow down the pace so we can all get together & relax and enjoy each other. I ha

Lyrics

(1)
People always saying, where has the time gone
Sun to sun and it won't be long until you're old
That's what I'm told

Wake me up, shake it up, breakin' up and makin' up
Society will drain you of your energy
But don't be cold
Keep in control

(bridge)
Oh, Oh, you got to slow down, look around
Keep your ear to the ground
You gotta make the time, draw the line
Enjoy the fruit of the vine

(chorus)
You know the man in the moon keeps spinnin' around
He doesn't agonize or analyze the way he moves
He doesn't quit or commit or refuse to rock 'n' roll
As he sails on through his individual groove

With his great big shiny smilin' moon face
Ain't gonna be in a rat race
No tellin' where you're bound
Because the man in the moon keeps
Spinnin' around

(2)
Uptown, downtown, everywhere you look around
People goin' out of their minds
It's a crime, it's a fine line
Don't you know it's a sign of the times
Whoa, whoa, but I'm not gonna get
Caught in the hum-drum
Medium rumble & tumble
In the jungle of life
That's right

(bridge)
Oh, oh, you got to slow down, look around
Keep your ear to the ground
You gotta make the time, draw the line
Enjoy the fruit of the vine

(chorus)
You know the man in the moon keeps spinnin around
He doesn't agonize or analyze the way he moves
He doesn't quit or commit or refuse to rock 'n' roll
As he sails on through his individual groove

With his great big shiny smilin' moon face
Ain't gonna be in a rat race
No tellin' where you're bound
Because the man in the moon keeps spinnin' around
