I have a friend who was awkward
He was not like the others but he didn't know why
When all that he wanted was just to be cool
He tried playing the hero, but he just played the fool.
Moon dancer, moon dancer, now
he's a moon dancer
Glides as he waltzes on clumsy old feet
Once he was conscious of every false step
Now he dances in moonlight with no one to see.
My little girl is so lovely
At ease with her body, she's nothing like me
No one has taught her to be someone else
At this tender age she takes joy in herself.
Moon dancer, moon dancer, she
is a moon dancer
Glides as she waltzes on graceful young feet
She's never been conscious nor watched every step
So she dances in moonlight with no one to see.
Moon dancer, moon dancer, I'll
be a moon dancer
Glide as I waltz on my graceful old feet
And I'll not be conscious nor watch every step
And I'll dance in the moonl ight with no one to see
I will dance in the moonlight with no one to see.
