Rockin' On The Moon

Billy Lee Riley

(Vic McAlpin, BRUNSWICK 55085, 1958)

Well, I dreamed I was rockin' in the air
A lot of peculiar cats were there
The band was a-playin' in a toy balloon
Man, they were rockin' on the moon
One cat said, boy come and dig our queen
I looked at her and I thought I'd scream
Eyes in the back of her head, what a sin
Couldn't tell where she's goin'
But she knows where she been
The band started blowin' in their toy balloon
Man, they were rockin' on the moon

Well, they had flat feet and a little green face
Cats were jumpin' in outer space
Ears so big, when they flopped they fly
By the time they'd land you could hear them cry
Keep on playin' in that toy balloon
Man, they were rockin' on the moon

Well, one frail quail with a silly smile
Said, come on boy, let me check your style
I grabbed that gal, I was a happy man
When the smoke died away the chips hit the fan
The band kept playin' in that toy balloon
Man, they were rockin' on the moon
