lyrics

I met an old man, he said:
"Son I don't know you
But love is a three card trick
Watch and I'll show you
How you turn your head
When she walks in the room
Cos you can't see the stars
For the halo around the moon.

Don't try to hide it
And don't look surprised
And no son, don't you lie to me
It's there in your eyes
You're a ship on her rocks
In a storm and you're doomed
Cos you can't see the stars
For the halo around the moon

If the ocean is crying
You don't dry her tears
If a mermaid is singing
You cover your ears
Or they'll take you and they'll drown you
In their salty perfume
When you can't see the stars
For the halo around the moon."

I looked at that old man
And I saw that he spoke
Through the fog of the whisky
All mirrors and smoke
Like some poet who whined
About a flower in bloom
With some tired old line
About a halo and a moon
I said: "I know love and her traps
And you thought
That a free man like me
Would fall in and get caught?
Well you must be the dumbest
Old man in the world!"
And I left him right there
To go talk to a girl.....
