Maureen's performance.
MAUREEN
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, We Only Drink Diet Coke."

She Said, "Only Thing To Do Is Jump Over
The Moon"

"They've Closed Everything Real
Down...Like Barns, Troughs, and ...
Performance Spaces...And Replaced It
All With Lies And Rules And Virtual Life.
But There Is A Way Out...

BACKUPS
Leap Of Faith Leap Of Faith
Leap Of Faith Leap Of Faith

MAUREEN
"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
Fertilizer And Fuel Oil, Pushed Over A
Cliff By A Suicidal Mickey Mouse! - I've
Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Gotta Find A Way

MAUREEN
"To Jump Over The
Moon
Only Thing To Do Is
Jump Over The Moon" BACKUPS
Leap Of Faith Etc.


MAUREEN
Then A Little Bulldog Entered. His Name
We Have Learned Was Benny. And
Although He Once Had Priciples, He
Abandoned Them To Live As A Lap Dog To
A Wealthy Daughter Of The Revolution.

A 1-2-3

"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 Had 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 Spoon For Instance.

They Were Down On Their Luck -
They come knockin' On My Doghouse Door and I Said, 'Not
In My Backyard, Utensils! Go Back To
China!'" Bee dee bong "The Only Way Out-Is Up," Elsie
Whispered To Me. "A Leap Of Faith. Still
Thirsty?" She Asked. "Parched." "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!!!


MAUREEN
I Awoke Singing

BACKUPS
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
Moooooooo
Moooooooo
Moooooooo
Moooooooo
Moo With Me

(She encourages the audience to moo with her. They do)

Thank You

    I think the meaning for over the moon is that theres always a way out of things and no matter what you should always have hope and if you do things will turn out alright
