​Why Look At The Moon

This song is by Victoria Williams and appears on the album Swing The Statue (1990).

This song has been covered by The Waterboys under the title "Why Look at the Moon".
Willows were swaying
The water was rippling
Froggies were singing
Along with the lapping at the bank

We have the moon to thank
For this lovely scene
We might never have seen
If it hadn't have been for the moon

Why look at that moon
Oh way up high seeing everything
Oh yes, days go by, why look at that moon
Why, why, why look at the moon
Why, why, why look at the moon

Sitting in the desert beneath the lonesome sky
Who my oh my, it would be
If there'd never been above that faithful little orb
The one that has beheld true love through history

Why must it start
Why must lovers part
Why does the cheating go on
Why do hearts hearts turn to stone

Why look at that moon
Oh way up high seeing everything
Oh yes, days go by, why look at that moon
Why, why, why look at the moon
Why, why, why look at the moon

Why look at that moon
Ain't it grand
Why look at that moon
Helps me understand
Why look at that moon
Inspirator of many a tune
Why look at that...
