Arthur's Theme
Christopher Cross Lyrics


Once in your life you find her
Someone that turns your heart around
And next thing you know you're closing down the town
Wake up and it's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wondering to yourself, "Hey, what've I found?"

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do is fall in love

Arthur he does as he pleases
All of his life, he's mastered choice
Deep in his heart, he's just, he's just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
And showing himself a really good time
Laughing about the way they want him to be

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy, but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love

When you get caught between the moon and New York City
(I know it's crazy)

Once in your life you'll find her
Someone who turns your heart around
And next thing you know
You're closin' down the town


Wake up and she's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
You're wonderin' to yourself
Hey what've I found


[Chorus]
When you get caught between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy but it's true
If you get caught between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do (the best that you can do)
The best that you can do is fall in love


Arthur he does what he pleases
All of his life his master's toys
And deep in his heart
He's just he's just a boy
Livin' his life one day at a time
He's showing himself a really good time
He's laughin' about the way
They want him to be


[Chorus]

"Once in your life..."
I'm not this chaps biggest fan but this song just keeps rolling.

The moment the first note is struck, good memories of early 1980s comes rushing in... I miss the 80's really.

Shadow

Christopher Cross' harmony on this track is heaven. I would have loved to have been in the studio when this was recorded and mixed. 🎧

Eric Grove

Excellent movie theme song. Great lyrics and music.

Christopher Cross and his music transport me back in time to when I was small and I’m reminded of the people who are now gone. So many memories! His music has always sounded good and he’s extremely underrated, in my opinion!

Jane Dow

I've played this song 12 times just tonight. Love it.

I always thought the lyrics were "if you get drunk between the moon..." Well it would sort of fit lol. Excellent movie
