Lyrics

Mr Moon, Mr Moon, maybe your time is coming.
Mr Moon, Mr moon, what's happening in that room?
Well searched your heart, before you die, before the times fade away.
It was given as a promise to each and every man.

I wanna love you but I'm growing old.
Ten little soldiers screaming in my soul.
Will she come over when it's time to go.
Come on and show me little drummer boy, no.

Mr Moon (3x.)

Sad but true, sad but true, you're telling me what to do.
I've learned my lesson, that stupid question, though it hurt my pride.
But you're a girl, a serious girl, showing me the world
Oh my love, you're so tired, but your must be quiet.

I wanna love you but I'm growing old.
Ten little soldiers screaming in my soul.
Will she come over when it's time to go.
Come on and show me little drummer boy, no.

Mr Moon (3x.)
Heeeey
Mr Moon (3x.)
Ohhh wuhuhuhu

I wanna love you but I'm growing old.
Ten little soldiers screaming in my soul.
Will she come over when it's time to go.
Come on and show me little drummer boy.

I wanna love you but I'm growing old.
Ten little soldiers screaming in my soul.
The day is using up it's final breath. I've never been so sure. I never doubted you.
Mr Moon (3x.)
