THE WOMAN IN THE MOON (Streisand Barbra)

I was warned as a child of thirteen Not to act too strong Try to look like you belong but don't push girl Save your time and trouble Don't misbehave I was raised in a "No You Don't World" Overrun with rules Memorize your lines and move as directed That's an age old story Everybody knows that's a worn out song But you and I are changing that tune We're learning new rhythms from the woman I said the woman in the moon Little sister, little brother Keep on pushin' Don't believe a word about Things you heard about Askin' too much too soon 'Cause they can hold back the tide But they can never hold the woman in the moon I believe there's a best of both worlds Mixing old and new Recognizing change is seldom expected As I long suspected They believed that strange was a word for wrong Well not in my song 'Cause you, you and I are changing that tune We're learning new rhythms from that woman in the moon Little sister, little brother Keep on pushin' Don't believe a word about Things you heard about Askin' too much too soon 'Cause they can hold back the tide But they can never hold the woman I said the woman in the moon
