   oh moon and stars up in the sky
        you never meant for me
        to be anything at all

        oh moon and stars up in the sky
        you never meant for me
        to be anything at all

        you only meant for me
        to sit here on the ground
        and sing my happy song
        and sing my happy song

        on flying clouds up in the sky
        you never meant for me
        to be anything at all

        on flying clouds up in the sky
        you never meant for me
        to be anything at all
       
        you only meant for me
        to sit here on the ground
        and sing my happy song
        and sing my happy song

4)  recreation shoeshine  -           


        i went to visit my old home town
        to see what i could find
        among old friends and lovers
        i imagined they would be
        but they brought me down
        and they hurt my pride
        as only friends and lovers can
        i'm out on the street
        and my own two feet
        will take me back again

        it's just that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time
        it turned out to be that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time

        there's limited amusement
        in looking at your toes
        but if you can't see eye to eye
        then that's just how it goes
        so i keep my shoes real shiny
        to reflect my true desires
        i'd like to be more generous, friends
        but you know i'm not much of a liar

        it's just that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time
        it turned out to be that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time

        so friend, if trouble follows you
        your soul might easily tire
        but dreams are made of anything
        including rubber bands, string, and wire
        so don't rub salt into your wounds
        and though your spirit grieves
        we shall come rejoicing
        bringing in the sheaves

        it's just that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one of these times
        and if you cut me, brother
        you know my smile
        will hide your crime
        and if seachin' took me nowhere
        my hopes were all sublime

        it just turned out to be that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time
       
        well, it just turned out to be that
        you see what you see
        down at the recreation shoeshine
        one more time  [ repeat ]
