Lyric "I'll Shoot the Moon"

I'll shoot the moon
Right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll be the pennies
On your eyes
For you baby
I want to take you
Out to the fair
Here's a red rose
Ribbon for your hair
I'll shoot the moon
Right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll shoot the moon
For you
A vulture circles
Over your head
For you baby
I'll be the flowers
After you're dead
For you baby
I want to build
A nest in your hair
I want to kiss you
And never be there
I'll shoot the moon
Right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll shoot the moon
For you

You know I love you, baby
So why don't you call me?
You know my number
392-7704
Call any time

I'll shoot the moon right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll shoot the moon for you

I'll shoot the moon right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll be the flowers after you're dead
For you baby
I want to build a nest in your hair
I want to kiss you and never be there
I'll shoot the moon right out of the sky
For you baby
I'll shoot the moon for you

He has worked as a composer for movies and musicals and has acted in supporting…
