Gerry Rafferty – Look At The Moon lyrics

Oh darlin' do not cry
These clouds will soon pass by
The moon up in the sky
Is crying, he feels just like you

The moonlight casts it's spell
You know that all is well
Even the moon can tell
He's smiling, he feels just like you.

    This songwriter knows something about the moon turning a quarter turn overnight, and so wrote about the crying moon and the smiling moon. The moon in the morning is grumpy/said, while at night is smiling/happy. I noticed this first by turning my head sideways to look at the moon one morning!
