MOONDOG

THE FUNERAL CARS CRAWL DOWN
THE HEARTBREAK SIDE OF TOWN
THE MOURNERS ALL DISCUSS
THE BOY WHO CAUSED A FUSS

WE CHOPPED A BILLION TREES
TO PRINT UP EULOGIES
BUT, GUYS, WE SHOULD HAVE GUESSED
THE GIRLS WOULD SAY IT BEST:

MOONDOG.....

LOVE.
'CAUSE LOVE'S THE FINAL WORD
NOTHING CROSSES LOVE
REASON HAS TO BOW
IF LOVE DEMANDS IT

MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?

UP THERE A FLAG WILL FLY
FOR MOM AND APPLE PIE

MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?

THE ONE PLACE LEFT TO PLAY
THE COMEBACK'S UNDERWAY

THE WORLD WAS YOUNGER THEN
IN BED ASLEEP BY TEN
AND DADDIES SHOOK THEIR FISTS
AT HIDDEN COMMUNISTS

THE EARTH WAS MERELY ROUND
BEFORE THE SLAP-BACK SOUND
IS THERE ONE SPELL CAN BRING
THE ONCE AND FUTURE KING?

MOONDOG....

CUT:

TO SOMEWHERE DEEP IN SPACE
BEYOND THE COLONEL'S ARMS
HANDSOME DOGGONE RAKE
THE TRULY WEIGHTLESS

MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
UP THERE A FLAG WILL FLY
FOR MOM AND APPLE PIE

MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
MOONDOG
GUESS WHO'S ON THE MOON?
THE ONE PLACE LEFT TO PLAY
HEY HEY
THE COMEBACK'S UNDERWAY

The southern girls that were WILD about Elvis Presley called him MOONDOG....

That meant that he was simply the MOST.

ELVIS was one hell of a talent. And, he was such a threat to the MORALS of this country, that the government DRAFTED him into the ARMY just to get rid of him.

It took ED SULLIVAN to get the moralists off of Elvis' back, even FRANK SINATRA loved the guy, but it was too late, he was sent off to GERMANY.

When Elvis Presley passed away, Frank Sinatra MOURNED, along with the rest of the country.

It hit us like a ton of bricks.

We ALL took him for granted.....

AND looking back on it, it seems that JOHN LENNON'S end was just around the corner, though it was three years later....
