The Moon is High

TTTO “The Tide is High”, by Blondie

Context: In Israel, when I was a kid, the “Bazuka” gum came with a stupid joke and a “fortune”. Half of those said “By the time you’re 21, you’ll reach the moon.” Well, guess what, Bazuka gum makers?

The moon is high but I’ll reach it soon
I plan to go to the moon
I’m not the kind of guy
Who gives up ’till he’ll die
Oh, no

It’s just the things I read
When I was just a kid
To believe it, they have lead
And so believe I did
I’m not the kind of guy
Who gives up ’till he’ll die
Oh, no

The moon is high but I’ll reach it soon
I plan to go to the moon
To the moon

Every boy read the same old prophecy
When you’ll be twenty-one then on the moon you’ll be
I’m not the kind of guy
Who gives up ’till he’ll die
Oh, no

The moon is high but I’ll reach it soon
I plan to go to the moon
To the moon
To the moon

Every boy read the same old prophecy
By age twenty-one then on the moon you’ll be
I’m not the kind of guy
Who gives up ’till he’ll die
Oh, no

The moon is high but I’ll reach it soon
I plan to go to the moon
To the moon
To the moon

The moon is high but I’ll reach it soon
I plan to go to the moon
To the moon
To the moon
