Moontime

LUNA
Oh it’s not easy. Being the moon.
You’re not welcome. To be outside at noon.
You wait and you wait and you hum simple tunes.
Oh it’s not easy being the moon.

CHORUS
But now it’s…MOON TIME.
Luna, won’t you shine?
Come on, it’s MOON TIME.
Moonlight’s got us feelin’ fine!

LUNA
I cannot rise…I cannot shine…I’ve got to say I don’t feel fine.
In fact I’ve had it. I quit!
Oh it’s not easy! Being the moon.
People rise up with the sun, people eat their lunch at noon
But when I rise the people fade – “I’m tired,” they all say
So there simply is NO WAY…I’m gonna shine for you today.
Cuz it’s not easy! Being the moon.
I wait all day and I hum simple tunes.
But now…today…I QUIT.

CHORUS
But now it’s…MOON TIME.
Luna, won’t you shine?
Come on, it’s MOON TIME.
Moonlight makes us feel fine!

ROMANTIC COUPLE
Why Luna, just tonight, we went out walking
Your luminous glow made us one
As your moonlight washed over our faces
We fell in love because of YOU – not the Sun!

CHORUS
The fell in love because of YOU, not the sun!
MOON TIME.

LUNA
No, I won’t let you squash my fun.

CHORUS
MOON TIME.

LUNA
I want to leave – become a sun!

CHORUS
She wants to leave, become a sun…She wants to leave, become a sun…if Luna leaves the Earth’s undone…we’re all undone…

Introducing the Sun

SUN
As the Sun I decree I’m the hottest
And brightest object in the sky
So yes you might think I’m all-knowing
Yet I’m confused and I often wonder WHY…
For I can’t figure out what she’s doing
Sometimes round, sometimes a fingernail
The cow that jumped over is mooing:
Who’s this moon? Who can help tell her tale?

CHORUS
Who’s this moon? Who can help tell her tale?
How’d she get there? Why so pale?
Who’s this moon? Who can help tell her tale?

SUN
If she leaves all day long it’s daytime
So who will ask her to stay?
I can’t possibly shine for 24 hours
Do you really want a 24-hour day?

It’s Fire

CHORUS
Fire! It’s fire!
Combusting fuel, it’s fire!
Lighting up the night it’s fire!

GOD
I can fix this.

CHORUS
He can fix this!

GOD
I can fix this.

CHORUS
He can fix this!

GOD
FIREBALL! FIREBALL!

CHORUS
FIREBALL! FIREBALL!

GOD
Bringing light to the land!

CHORUS
Bringing light to the land!

It’s a Grind

JADE RABBIT
Well, it’s a grind!

CHORUS
A grind!

JADE RABBIT
Don’t you know it is a grind!

CHORUS
A grind!

JADE RABBIT
Grinding up herbs all the time!

CHORUS
All the time!

JADE RABBIT
If I don’t get back to Earth…

CHORUS
He’s gonna lose his MIND!

JADE RABBIT
Yes, I’ll lose it, now!

CHORUS
He’s gonna lose his MIND!

JADE RABBIT
Watch me lose it, now! I’m losing it…I’m losing it…losing my danged MIND!

SOUL SINGERS

Well once upon a time he was a rabbit…A little bunny with a habit…of grinding up herbs into potions.
He’d grind ‘em up!
Potions that were magic –
But one of them was tragic –
Cause it blew him to the moon!
To the moon!

JADE RABBIT
Well, it’s a grind!

CHORUS
A grind!

JADE RABBIT
Don’t you know it is a grind!

CHORUS
A grind!

JADE RABBIT
Grinding up herbs all the time!

CHORUS
All the time!

JADE RABBIT
If I don’t get back to Earth…

CHORUS
He’s gonna lose his MIND!

JADE RABBIT
Yes, I’ll lose it, now!

CHORUS
He’s gonna lose his MIND!

JADE RABBIT
Watch me lose it, now!

LADY HENG-O
All right…STOP! I’ll tell you what’s a grind.
I had a life. A happy life. An immortal life.
Then my husband shot ‘em down…down to the ground…Nine sons who were sons of guns!
Now my life…oh the strife!…Stuck on the moon with a hare. So y’all beware.
Immortality was all I wanted. Now I’ve got it. And I sure don’t want it.
So y’all beware. Of the hare. I’m caught. In a snare. People stare. At the moon’s glare. I’d rather be anywhere. Then up hare.

SOUL SINGERS
Up in hare…

LADY HENG-O
With this hare.

SOUL SINGERS
It’s not fair. She’s caught. In a snare. Way up there.

CHORUS
So be careful of the snare…you might live forever…with a hare.

Dark Side

CHORUS
Is your Dark Side a story
A story that you tell
A lie that feels like truth
A lie you love too well
Does your Dark Side have soldiers
An emperor who’s in charge
Are you your own Lord Vader
Is your Dark Side far too large?

The stories that we tell
Can make a heaven or hell
It all depends
Who does the telling

The stories that we tell
Can make a heaven or hell
So be sure
You tell them well

Tell the truth.
Tell yourself the truth.
Tell your friends the truth.
Tell this crowd the truth.

LUNA
I’ll tell you the truth! That I still am not persuaded
If I should stay or I should go.
If I could just change my story I’d be elated
When I see my dark side I’d tell it NO

CHORUS
When you meet your dark side just tell it no
When you hear your dark side just tell it no
So…
Get up, grab a snack, touch your toes
We have more stories to tell, more facts to disclose
Will Luna stay or go? Who knows
But you won’t need a telescope
Just watch how it goes
So get up, grab a snack, scratch your nose
We’ll be back…at intermission’s close.

Lunar Phases

The lunar phase is the shape of the illuminated or sunlit portion of the Moon as seen by an observer on Earth.

The lunar phases change cyclically as the Moon orbits the Earth, according to the changing positions of the Moon and Sun relative to the Earth.

The Moon’s rotation is tidally locked by the Earth’s gravity, therefore the same lunar surface always faces Earth.

This face is variously sunlit depending on the position of the Moon in its orbit.

Poor Baloo

CHORUS
Poor Baloo, he tipped the canoe

BALOO
The water ruined my hairdo!

CHORUS
Poor Baloo, Poor Baloo

MAIDENS
He appeared, then he withdrew
First he climbed in our canoe
Fell out then went cuckoo
Now, the chorus of kazoos!

BALOO
No one seems to care, they laugh and ballyhoo
Each time I remember it’s just like déjà vu
I step in, and then

ALL
WHOOSH!

BALOO
I’m wet from hairdo to tennis shoes!

CHORUS
He is wet, he is wet, from hairdo to tennis shoes! He is wet, he is wet, from hairdo to tennis shoes!

Stir, Stir, Stir

CHORUS
Stir, stir, stir
The corn is in the pot
Purr, purr, purr
The cat is feeling naught-y
Don’t stop to stir! Your work will all be lost!
Don’t look away! Your headband will be tossed!

CAT
I can pounce, I’m a cat, I like to play
You might think I sleep all day
But when you look away, look away
I sink claws! And your headband I will slay!

CHORUS
Stir, stir, stir
The corn is in the pot
Purr, purr, purr
The cat is feeling naught-y
Look how kitties glide
Then they stop for licking
Across the floor they slide
Then tiny headbands they are kicking
Kick it!

Oh, old woman…don’t stop to stir! Your work will all be lost!
Don’t look away! Your headband will be tossed!
And so it goes…the moon it grows…
Then in a while a sliver shows
The woman weaves, then looks away
No wonder all her hair is gray
If that were MY cat…HE’D BE A STRAY!

Gravital Pull

CHORUS
Luna has a gravitational pull
That’s why she’s transfixed humankind
When she’s small, we love the sliver, and when she’s full
She makes waves and makes werewolves lose their minds
Luna has a gravitational pull
That’s why we have gathered here tonight
To pay tribute to a power beautiful
And to bask in her luminescence bright
We are not lunatics we’re just moonstruck
We are sound of body and of mind
And yet every 28 days we’re struck with moon-luck
Moon Power makes us strong and keeps us kind

LUNA
Ever changing…and yet eternal.
Bright – oh so bright – yet I’m soft.
Tonight you’ve agreed to be nocturnal
And together, we have held the moon aloft.

CHORUS
Ever changing…and yet eternal.
Bright – oh so bright – and yet she’s soft.
Tonight we’ve agreed to be nocturnal
And together, we have held the moon aloft.
Held Luna aloft
But soft! But soft! But soft!
What light? Yonder window?
A softness that’s so bright?
We tell stories in her light. We tell stories in her light.
You know her. .
