lyrics

The sun is always drinking
Lapping up the water like a thirsty lion
The sun has been known to be drunk
In its own sunshine

The moon is always trembling
Worrying over what it did the very night before
The moon has been known to go knocking
From door to door

The earth is always aching
Aching to be left all alone
The earth wants to pick up its bat and ball
And go home

Shake off the world tonight for me
Shake off the world tonight for you
Shake off the world tonight so we can see what is sound and true

When so many people call you
Why do you call the ones who won’t?
When so many people love you
Why do you recall the ones who don’t?

Shake off the world tonight for me
Shake off the world tonight for you
Shake off the world tonight so we can see what is sound and true

The sun is always drinking
Lapping up the water like a thirsty lion
The sun has been known to be drunk
In its own sunshine
