Moon Dance

I have always, always loved the song Moondance by Van Morrison. For the past couple months though, my brain has been saying, y'know, you really need a werewolf parody of that..

Well, my brain finally coughed up the goods (much like a hairball).


Moon Dance
ttto: Moondance by Van Morrison

Well it's a marvelous night to go prowling,
as the stars overhead light the skies.
It's a fabulous night to be howling,
on the trail of my prey and its cries.
And the sound of my paws will be falling
on the ground with the ice and the snow
And I'm hearing the moon dance; it's calling
As the beast in my blood starts to grow.
I feel the moon's magic;
Start to shimmer and blur.
And then the full moon's light
Seems to shine in my fur...

Can't I just have one more moon dance, tonight, my dear?
Can't I just stop the moon's advance, tonight, my dear?

Well, I wanna chase after you all night
And I'll hope that the morning won't come
Cause I know that the time is just right
As straight into my jaws you will run.
And when you come my dear, I'll be waiting
To make sure that I'm never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true dear
There and then I will make you my own
Now feel the change starting;
as your beast comes alive.
Leave all your fears behind you,
As you learn, to survive.

Can't I just have one more moon dance, tonight, my dear?
Can't I just stop the moon's advance, tonight, my dear?

Well it's a marvelous night to go prowling,
as the stars overhead light the skies.
It's a fabulous night to be howling,
on the trail of our prey and its cries.
And the sound of our paws will be falling
on the ground with the ice and the snow
And we're hearing the moon dance; it's calling
As the beast in our blood starts to grow.
We feel the moon's magic;
Start to shimmer and blur.
And then the full moon's light
Seems to shine in our fur...

Can't we just have one more moon dance, tonight, my dear?
Can't we just stop the moon's advance, tonight, my dear?


I'm not 100% certain it's 'done' yet, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Edit: After a bit of fiddling I came up with a better second line of the couplet that preserved the original internal rhyme.. Happy making :)
Edit the second: I am also perfectly happy with people offering critique where deserved on any lyrics I post here (one person commented privately that they weren't always willing to offer critique unless they knew it was looked for, so I wanted to clarify that).
