                                      C    Dm
If you want to write a song about the moon
      F7                      Bb        Eb9(без 3й) F
Walk along the craters of the afternoon
                     C6/E         A7             Dm Bb
When the shadows are deep and the light is alien
                         Eb            Edim
And gravity leaps like a knife off the pavement
        F                              C    C#dim
And you want to write a song about the moon
    Dm7             F7        Bb   Bdim
You want to write a spiritual tune
     F           Am/E Bbmaj7 F(addG)/A
Then nah nah nah
G7     C7sus4
Presto

Song about the moon

If you want to write a song about the heart
Think about the moon before you start
Because the heart will howl
Like a dog in the moonlight
And the heart can explode
Like a pistol on a June night
So if you want to write a song about the heart
And its ever longing for a counterpart
     F           Am/E Bbmaj7 F(addG)/A G7
Then nah nah nah
        C7sus4         F    Bb/F F Bb/F F

Dm7          Fmaj7/C
The laughing boy
   Abmaj9     D7
He laughed so hard
   Gm        D7       Gm    Dm7
He fell down from his place
             Fmaj7/C
The laughing girl
    Bbmaj7     A7
She laughed so hard
    Dm          G9         C9
The tears rolled  down her face

Hey Songwriter
               Bb/F    F            Bb/F F
If you want to write a song about a face
                    C
Think about a photograph
         Dm             F7             Bb          Eb9(без 3й) F
That you really can't remember but you can't erase
          C6/E     A7                  Dm Bb
Wash your hands in dreams and lightning
Cut off your hair
        Eb      Edim
And whatever is frightening
       F                            C    C#dim
If you want to write a song about a face
       Dm7             F7             Bb         Bdim
If you want to write a song about the human race
     F           Am/E Bbmaj7 F(addG)/A G7
Then nah nah nah
        C7sus4         F    C C#dim Dm F7 Bb Bbm
Write a song about the moon
