A Much Better View Of The Moon (Evans & Doherty)

I used to walk through this world
cautious and oh, so serious,
Till the life I was living was nearly
a near-death experience;
But I changed my story when I finally saw,
where I was wasn't where it was at,
And now I'm alive, I let destiny drive,
and I'm stretching out in the back.

If I lose my job, I'll sleep till noon,
If the news is bad, I'll watch cartoons;
If my house burns down, I'll have lots more room,
And a much better view of the moon.

In the vastness of space,
the ever-expanding universe,
We are all puny specks of galactic dust
down here on mother earth;
Now, I ain't no preacher, don't know if I'll reach ya,
but here is some humble advice:
Use your uncommon sense and you surely will live
an uncommonly sensible life.

If you lose your job, sleep till noon,
If the news is bad, watch cartoons;
If your house burns down, you'll have lots more room,
And a much better view of the moon.

Now, I ain't no preacher, don't know if I'll reach ya,
But here is some humble advice:
Use your uncommon sense and you surely will live,
An uncommonly sensible life.

If you lose your job, sleep till noon,
If the news is bad, watch cartoons;
If your house burns down, you'll have lots more room,
And a much better view of the moon.

If you lose your job, sleep till noon,
If the news is bad, watch cartoons;
If your house burns down, you'll have lots more room,
And a much better view of the moon.

If I lose my job, I'll sleep till noon,
If the news is bad, I'll watch cartoons;
If my house burns down, I'll have lots more room,
And a much better view of the moon.
