MOONLIGHTING (Frank Farrell / Leo Sayer) Leo Sayer - 1975 He sees her at the same time every night At the Mexican discotheque She gives him French kisses He gives her French cigarettes They sit at the same table every time The lights are low, but their eyes shine Just digging the music from those sweet soul bands She keeps him outta fights, holds on to his hand He whispers slowly "Tonight’s the night" Months of planning so it’s gotta be right Under the table her bag is bursting at the seams She made sure to bring everything Moonlighting They’re leaving everything Moonlighting They’re losing all their friends Moonlighting It’s the only way It’s frightening But it means they’ll stay Together They’re gonna make it together His blue Morris van is parked in an alley Just by Montague Street His friend Eddie he did the re-spray So he couldn’t drive it all last week And it cost most of the money that he had saved up To pay Eddie’s receipt But he figures it’s worth it ‘cos the disguise is a must When they go missing they’re gonna look for the van first She whispers slowly "It’ll be alright I took some cash from my building society And my monthly cheque came in just right" If only they knew they were giving it away Moonlighting They’re leaving everything Moonlighting They’re losing all their friends Moonlighting It’s the only way It’s frightening But it means they’ll stay Together They’re gonna make it together 9:15 Monday morning at the printing works The boss notices someone’s not clocked in And the water department of the council offices has a message That Mrs. Park’s daughter is missing Meanwhile, the Carlisle turn-off of the M6 Motorway Drinking cold black coffee, eating hot cup-cakes She stares at him with his beard unshaved Wonders at his powers of staying awake He whispers slowly "You did just fine" They shared the driving all through the night She laughs "My mother will have lost her mind We’re only ten miles to Gretna, they’re three hundred behind" Moonlighting They’re leaving everything Moonlighting They’re losing all their friends Moonlighting It’s the only way It’s frightening But it means they’ll stay Together They’re gonna make it together Moonlighting They’re leaving everything Moonlighting They’re losing all their friends Moonlighting It’s the only way It’s frightening But it means they’ll stay Together They’re gonna make it together (Contributed by EUROPEAN OLDIES LYRICS - May 2005)
