Soft Machine – Moon in June (testo)

“On a dilemma between what I need
and what I just want
between your thighs I feel a sensation
how long can I resist the temptation?
I’ve got my bird, you’ve got your man
so who else do we need, really?

Now I’m here, I may as well
put my other hand in yours
while we decide how far to go
and if we’ve got time to do it now
and if it’s half as good for you
as it is for me
then you won’t mind
if we lie down for a while
just for a while
till all the thing I want is need
till all the thing I want is need

I want you more than ever now
we’re on the floor, and you want more
and I feel almost sure
that cause now we’ve agreed
that we got what we need
then all the thing us needs is wanting

I realized when I saw you last
we’ve been together now and then
from time to time, just here and there
now I know how it feels
from my hair to my heels
to have you on the horns of my dilemma
– Oh! Wait a minute! –

Over, up, over, up, down
down, over, up, over, up

Living can be lovely
here in New York State
ah, but I wish that I were home
and I wish I were home again
back home again, home again

There are places and people
that I’m so glad to have seen
ah, but I miss the trees
and I wish that I were home again
back home again

The sun shines here all summer
it’s nice cause you can get quite brown
ah, but I miss the rain
ticky tacky ticky
and I wish that I were home again
home again, home again…

Living is easy here in New York State
ah, but I wish that I were home again

Just before we go on
to the next part of our song
let’s all make sure we’ve got the time
music-making still performs the normal functions
background noise for people scheming
seducing, revolting and teaching
that’s all right by me
don’t think that I’m complaining
after all, it’s only leisure time, isn’t it?

Now I love your eyes
see how the time flies
she’s learning to hate
but it’s just too late for me
it was the same with her love
it just wasn’t enough for me
but before this feeling dies
remember how distance can tell lies!

You can almost see her eyes
is it me she despises or you?
You’re awfully nice to me
and I’m sure you can see what her game is
she sees you in her place
just as if it’s a race
and you’re winning, and you’re winning
she just can’t understand
that for me everything’s just beginning
until I get more homesick
so before this feeling dies
remember how distance tells us lies…

Singing a song in the morning
singing it again at night
don’t really know what I’m singing about
but it makes me feel all right”.
