I'm after the words (and music if possible) for Robb Johnson's Singing for the Moon - I heard it the other night for the first time and thought it was very inspirational. Can anyone help?
Thanks...
Sarah

I couldn't find the lyrics. It is on "Margaret Thatcher, My Roll in Her Downfall." http://www.greenmanreview.com/robbjohnson.html has a link to a site where it can be ordered.

The words ( and chords ) are in "Words and Chords: A Robb Johnson Songbook (part 1)" along with 51 other songs. It was £8.00 when it was published by Irregular in 2000. ISBN 0 9537855-1-3, possibly findable via http://www.robbjohnson.co.uk/

Hope that helps.

Dont worry .... there will be better days than these,
D               (A)G             (A)    D             (A)G
Though maybe not for you and me,
             (A)      Bm          (A)G
But better days will come,
             (D)    Em      (D)GA
& we will bring them closer with our little Lives
with every song of freedom
In the shadows od the Jail
Keep on singing for the moon
G       A               D    (A)G (D)
Keep on singing for the moon
G       A               D


Dont worry, the truth is as it always is
No matter what the money says,
You ain't the only voice there is
singing singing for the souls that can't
& though they shut up songs in stadiums
someone always carries on
keep on singing for the moon


don't worry the generals are just uniforms
that suffer from insomnia
they don't know how to dream
Sweat dreamer, maybe your dreams won't all come true
they're only dreams, they never do
But look how far we've come.
Keep on singing for the moon...

Here we go chums:

BE REASONABLE
Written and recorded by Robb Johnson on 'The Big Wheel'

We'll rehouse the homeless in Buckingham Palace,
Start at the bottom, work down to the top,
Stop the city, rebuild the forest,
Cancel the rent, & nick all the cops.
Be reasonable, demand the impossible now.

We'll turn all the motorways into canals,
Close all the Aldermastons down,
All differences equal, systems for people,
Not the other way around.
Be reasonable, demand the impossible now.

We'll spring all the animals,
And vote for the clowns in the Circus Bourgeoisie,
Where the rich sing the blues till their trousers fall down,
And then give you the price of a nice cup of tea.
Be reasonable, demand the impossible now.

Grow gardens & hospitals, playgrounds & schools,
Like sunflowers on every street,
Do what you like 'cos you like what you do,
Like autumn each year at your feet.
Be reasonable, demand the impossible now.

No master, no landlord, no flag, no guru,
No gauleiter, no commissar,
Just justice and poetry with jam on it too,
When they ask 'who's in charge here?' We all say: we are!
Be reasonable, demand the impossible now.
