Around the Sun album at
R.E.M.'s, "Man On The Moon "
The Lyrics:
Moses went walking with the staff of wood. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Newton got beaned by the apple good. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Egypt was troubled by the horrible asp. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Mister Charles Darwin had the gull to ask. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. Hey Andy did you hear about this one? Tell me, are you locked in the punch? Hey, Andy are you goofing on Elvis? Hey, baby. Are you having fun? If you believed they put a man on the moon, man on the moon. If you believe there's nothing up his sleeve, then nothing is cool.
"Man On The Moon" was a 1994 hit (although not a big one) for the band from Athens, GA, R.E.M. A few years later, it would become a hit again when it was featured in the film and soundtrack biopic of the man the song is about, the late great comediene, Andy Kaufman ("Taxi" and "Saturday Night Live"). Mentioned in the third verse of the tune as I have posted above is the country of Egypt and again, the Earth's only natural satellite (also in the title of the song), the Moon.
