There is a beautiful full moon up high in the sky
It's up there right now
lighting up the landscape like a spotlight
There is a beautiful full moon tonight
and I want to howl so bad
I want to run with the moon
and hunt like an animal
I want to howl so bad
but I cannot
The world frowns on
running and howling and full moons
Such things are quaint and romantic
but not practical
and just barely legal
There are a thousand old ladies
who are ready to speed-dial 911
at the first sound of
a high clear howl on a moonlit night
There are a million cops
and a billion law-abiding citizens
ready to gather dry kindling
and forge silver bullets
They don't have to believe
They'd do it out of boredom
There is a beautiful full moon up there tonight
shining and laughing and round
I hear it call to me
I feel its pull
I can look up
and stare straight into its white white light
I want to howl
I want to howl so bad
