Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Young Moon

Notes: words and music by Malvina Reynolds; copyright 1976 Schroder Music Company, renewed 2004. A song about Steve Goodman’s small daughters. It was issued as the B side of the single "The Judge Said," which Steve produced for Malvina in Chicago.

Young moon, small moon, little girl moon,
Pony tail moon in the sky,
Tho you are far and alone,
Just for this moment you are my own.

Young moon, small moon, little girl moon,
Some day I'll look by my side,
And I will see someone there
And I'll wonder where I've seen her before,

So young, so softly bright,
And then I'll remember this night,
Young moon.

If you have a daughter
And watch her by moonlight,
You'll sing to the moon as you rock her to sleep.
