Venus Kissed The Moon (Christine Lavin)

Venus kissed the Moon tonight We watched her in the Sky She's been - flirtin' with him for centuries Too bad he's so shy He's waxing He's waining You don't see Venus complaining She'll steal a kiss whenever she can Not 'till 2031 Will this happen again. I kissed you in the taxicab And touched your handsome face I said, I feel like a satellite Away too long in space. You roll down the window To gain a clearer view. Now you're Gazing at the Heavens I'm gazing at you. 2031 you say That's an eternity So far away Not to me Time and Distance Make no difference In this celestial love affair Oh you laugh and you hold me tight Your eyes are shining bright Like the luminescent street lights Like those lovers way up there. Venus kissed the Moon tonight It's okay - This is a leap year. Then she kept right on travelling Centriphical force, my dear. He'll keep waxing, And waining, You won't see Venus complaining She'll steal a kiss whenever she can This will happen again This will happen again.
