Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a Moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow

And if I ever lose my hands, lose my plough, lose my land,
Oh if I ever lose my hands, Oh if…. I won’t have to work no more.
And if I ever lose my eyes, if my colours all run dry,
Yes if I ever lose my eyes, Oh if…. I won’t have to cry no more.

Oh, I’m bein’ followed by a Moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow
Leapin and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow

And if I ever lose my legs, I won’t moan, and I won’t beg,
Yes if I ever lose my legs, Oh if I ever lose my legs I won’t have to walk no more.
And if I ever lose my mouth, all my teeth, north and south,
Yes if I ever lose my mouth, Oh if…. I won’t have to talk…

Oh I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow

Did it take long to find me?
_ I asked the faithful light._
Did it take long to find me?
And are you gonna stay the night?

Oh I’m bein’ followed by a moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow
Leapin’ and hoppin’ on a Moonshadow,
Moonshadow, Moonshadow

— Cat Stevens

When he appeared on The Chris Isaak Hour in 2009, Stevens said of this song: “I was on a holiday in Spain. I was a kid from the West End (of London) – bright lights, etc. – I never got to see the moon on its own in the dark, there were always streetlamps. So there I was on the edge of the water on a beautiful night with the moon glowing, and suddenly I looked down and saw my shadow. I thought that was so cool; I’d never seen it before.”
