Kiko and the lavender moon
Out playing, makes believe
Nobody can see
And then he waits
And then he fakes
And then he bends
And then he shakes
He plays and plays
Still playing till he
Goes off to sleep

Kiko and the lavender moon
Out dancing making faces at
A big black cat
And then he flies
Up to the wall
Stands on one foot
Doesn't even fall
Dance and dance
Still dancing till
He goes off to sleep

He always sleeps
Till the sun goes down
He never wakes
Till no one's around
He never stops
Can't catch his breath
It's always there
Scares him to death

Kiko and the lavender moon
Out dreaming 'bout green shoes
Haircuts and cake
And then he wishes
The world away
And then he kneels
As if to pray
He dreams and dreams
Kiko and the lavender moon

Got to admit I really like this song ....

I introduced the kidlets to the Sesame Street version.... Elmo and the Lavender Moon. They love it.....

"Elmo and the lavender moon
Out dancing making faces at
A big black cat.
And then they dance
Stands on one foot
Doesn't even fall.
Dance and dance
Still dancing as
He goes off to sleep"

Always makes me smile as I look at the kidlets sleeping....

Does this band have, " Kompromat," on Bill?

So mediocre and yet so overplayed, especially this turkey. 

 
 {#Yes}

O-ver-played, Oh-verr-played...
I think that 2000+ ratings averaging 7 outweigh the  naysayers. Good Song.
I really don't understand why RP loves top play this song so frequently.  Way out of proportion to its quality.  Please edify me.

What if you can enjoy it while hearing the nursery rhyme? What would that leave me with? {#Ask}
4 times in 30 days is 3 too much, this has worn out.
This one of the very few songs which have stayed in rotation for 25 years chez nous.

I agree. A very good song off of a very good album by a very good band.

I can't set this lower than 1. PSD Away!!!
These guys are so good live.  Love this whole CD.
 
BRILLIANT ORCHESTRAL ARRANGEMENT. 
Just saw Los Lobos 3 weeks ago with the North Mississippi All Stars and the Tedeschi Trucks band.  Such an awesome night of music with all 3 band's various members sitting in with whoever was on stage at the moment.  Just a great night of live music.
Great American band.

Anything by LL
THREE BLIND MICE, THREE BLIND MICE......
PRIMO
Love, love, love this song. So glad it is still played. 
Although I dislike this song, the disharmonious and repetitive strings/winds weird thingie makes me want more and more.

Like a trainwreck.

Or a family reunion.

{#Yes} 

How 'bout that PSD!
PSD !  this is not dreamy or hypnotic, those trumpets Pam - dam - dam and the ding-y-ding of the I don't know what are annoying.. It's too slow and they don't match the rest of the song, actually, I think without them the song would have more strength and would be more pleasant... 3

Love this and LL, in general! I have four tickets to a live show in September, which I'm really looking forward to because they are one of the bands I've always wanted to see live and I've read that they put on a great show. Hope they play some of my favs!

Way. Over. Played.

 
A thousand times YES!

 
{#Cheers} ...... their best album - "Outstanding" song
Those horns are as sweet as the perfume of a pedestrian underpass.
The cover reminds me of Edith Ann ...

 
Similar to a Three Blind Mice riff—but in a minor key.
