Lyrics

He was white and she was white
As only statues are
Fifty years they stood there looking
Stupid by a jar
One night in mid August when the
Moonlight got too strong
They climbed off their pedestals and
Then they sang this song

Past the gun emplacement and the
Bones as white as bleach
Through the rats and ivy till they
Came out on a beach
Out into the ocean til they
Disappeared from view
Honey, when it gets you there's just
Nothing you can do

Underwater moonlight sets the body free
Underwater moonlight, baby you and me
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight

He was pink and she was pink and
Onward they did row
Didn't see the giant squid though
It was fairly slow
When they hit the bottom they were
Well and truly dead
The statues took their place and then they
Rowed back home instead

Underwater moonlight, take your baby down
Underwater moonlight watch your baby drown with love
And in the moonlight
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight

What skill
I can take you down
Through the sea        (moonlight)
You can feed the fish    (moonlight)
Why don't you feed the fish?   (moonlight)
Why don't you feed the fish?   (moonlight)

Underwater moonlight sets the body free
Underwater moonlight, baby you and me
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight
Underwater moonlight
