HANNAH:  "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

It's a marvelous night for a moondance
So let's moonwalk the night away
Inviting all of the lunatics
To come on, come out and play

We're the moons and we like to orbit
Staying loyal to our planet
We go round and round and round it
So much love we can hardly stand it

Some like to call us satellites
There're hundreds of us in the sky
More moons discovered every day
Lighting up the darkest nights

We've all got one thing in common
That we're totally unique
Some are huge and some are tiny
Some are spheres and some are freaks

Some of us are icy
Some are dust and rock and stone
Some of us have really cool names
And some of us are unknown

The most famous moon of all
Is anything but small
She's the 2nd brightest body in the sky
She's the Earth's best friend and trusted ally 

She goes simply by the name Moon
Depending on what language you speak
Man has walked upon her
She's a chic antique

I've got no atmosphere to speak of
No sound or wind or air
The footprints that Armstrong left on me
Are actually still there
I've got 1/6 of Earth's gravity
And I'm a quarter of her size
I might be a bit less powerful
But I control her oceans' tides

I'm egg-shaped and have moonquakes
I attract lots of solar wind
Got craters, mountains and ice
Yeah, I'm pretty thick skinned.

People only see one side of me
It's my smiling happy face
But what most of them don't know is
That I'm moving further away in space – in space.

We're all stuck in our planets' gravity
They adopted us long ago
We feel a devoted harmony
Staying close to our happy home

So it's a marvelous night for a moondance
So let's moonwalk the night away
Inviting all of the lunatics
To come on, come out and play

Space out.
