Straight to The Moon - Sheryl Crow

You got lucky
Walking cross a crowded room
The cameras went from wide to zoom
And caught you in the act
Well now, you've got something
Something we could really use
If we could get you on the evening news
And spruce up the facts

We'd go straight to the moon
Planting the seeds
And then watching them bloom
But isn't it strange
What gets thrown up
Comes right back down again

Snuck out the back
With Nancy and the philistines
Quotes from Rolling Stone magazine
Dribble from her mouth
Oh now, please don't tell me
Let me have this one surprise
If I come back a million years from now
Can I keep my scalp

I go straight to the moon
Planting the seeds
And then watching them bloom
But isn't it strange
Once it goes out
It comes right back again
Ooh, we go straight through the moon
Turn on the tv and you're in the cartoons
Ooh, but isn't it strange
Once it goes out
It comes right back again Your co-conspirators
Open up the secret door
And now the truth is out
What are we gonna do about it

I'm not much on second hand information
Sycophantic recreations
Have been down with the smile
Now I rolled up my sleeves
And took off my good shoes
You can't get in and get loose
Without getting dirt in your eyes

Ooh, you go straight to the moon
Planting the seeds
And then watching them bloom
Ooh, isn't it strange
Once it goes up
It comes back down again
Ooh, it's too much too soon
Turn on the tv and I'm in the cartoons
Ooh, isn't it strange
What gets thrown up
Comes right back down again

Ooh
Ooh, straight to the moon
Turn on the tv and there's a cartoon
If it makes you happy
