Original Broadway Cast – Over The Moon lyrics

Last night I had a dream
I found myself in a desert called Cyberland
It was hot
My canteen had sprung a leak and I was thirsty
Out of the abyss walked a cow - Elsie
I asked if she had anything to drink
She said, "I'm forbidden to produce milk
In Cyberland, only thing we drink is Diet Coke."
She said, "Only thing to do is jump over the moon"
"They've closed everything real down. . .
Like barns, troughs, performance spaces. . .
And replaced it all with lies and rules and virtual life
But there is a way out. . .
Leap of fate leap of fate
Leap of fate leap of fate
"Only thing to do is jump over the moon"
I gotta get out of here!
It's like I'm being tied to the hood
Of a yellow rental truck,
Being packed in with fertelizer and fuel oil
Pushed over a cliff by a suicidal Mickey Mouse! -
I've gtaa find a way
To jump over the moon Leap of faith (Etc.)
Only thing to do is
Jump over the moon
Then a little bulldog entered
His name (we have learned) was Benny
And although he once had principles
He abandoned them to live as a lap dog
To a wealthy daughter of the Revolution
"That's bull," he said. "Ever since the cat
Took up the fiddle, that cow's been jumpy.
And the dish and spoon were evicted from the table - And eloped
She's ahd trouble with that milk and the moon ever since.
Maybe it's a female thing.
'Cause who'd want to leave Cyberland anyway?
Walls ain't so bad
The dish and the spoon for instance
They were down on their luck -
Knocked no my doghouse door.
I said, 'Not in my backyard, utensils!
Go back to China!'
'The only way out - is up,' Elsie whispered to me.
'A leap fo faith. Still thirsty?' she asked.
'Have some milk.'
I lowered myself beneath her
And held my mouth to her swollen udder
And sucked the sweetest milk I'd ever tasted.
'Climb on board,' she said.
And as a harvest moon rose over Cyberland
We reared back and sprang into a gallop.
Leaping out of orbit!!!
I awoke singing Leap of faith (Etc.)
Only thing to do
Only thing to do is jump
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Only thing to do is jump over the moon
Over the moon - Over the
Moo with me.
Thank you.
