A moon walk takes some special shoes
They wouldn’t work on earth
Risk losing my vintage turquoise jewelry?
It was given me at birth
I stepped into a puddle and thought I’m just a little wet
Boy did I get scolded when they saw my every step
If I stare too long at sun rays my eyes can lose all sight
What would I do with tangerine dreams in darkness with no light?
A fire can be a comfort and present a safe and snuggly home
But you better know and trust the builder of the hearthstone
Do you know there is a simple answer to every question that we ask?
But few are easy peasy when you accept the task
