Moon Rocks
Talking Heads Lyrics


Flying saucers, levitation
Yo! I could do that
Get ready, for heavy duty
Go one, give it a chance
I saw your hair start to curl
So get up, write it down
You better wait for a while

So take your hands out of your pockets
And get your face adjusted
I heard it, somebody lied
And I'm staring out the window
Gonna let this thing continue
In it's natural time
Roundheads squareheads
Get settled in
You can hear my belly rumble
There's a voice that starts to mumble
Woo! It's starting to sing

Protons, neutrons
I ate a rock from the moon
Got shicked once; shocked twice
Let's see, what it can do
Man in the moon, moon in the man
I got a rock in my throat
Upside, up side down
My tummy start to talk . . . (what it say?)

Gonna rock it 'till I shock it
Gonna kick it 'till I drop it
Woo! Love at first sight
You can kick it, You can poke it
Ooh, I think you broke it
What about that!
Skin from a snake, blood from a stone
You know, that ain't no lie
I got hundreds of expressions
Try to make a good impression
Woo! Right between the eyes

I don't mind - let me go
Sounds inside - I don't know
Let me be - why not stay
I feel numb - let me play

I got wild imagination
Talkin' transubstantiation
Any version will do
I got mass communication
I'm the human corporation
I ate a rock from the moon
Moon in the rock, rock in the moon
There's a moon in my throat
You might think I'm wasting time
You might laugh but not for long
Hey! I'm working it out . . . (work it out)

I don't mind - let me go
Sounds inside - I don't know
Let me be - why not stay
I feel numb - let me play

Flying saucers, levitation
Yo, I could do that
Get ready, for heavy duty
Go on, give it a chance
Give it a chance, give it a chance
I saw your hair start to curl
So get up, write it down
You better wait for a while


So take your hands out of your pockets
Get your face adjusted
I heard it, somebody lied
And I’m staring out the window gonna let this thing continue
In its natural time
Round heads, Square heads
Get settled in
You can hear my belly rumble, there’s a voice that starts to mumble
Whoo, It’s starting to sing


Protons, neutrons
I ate a rock from the moon
Got shocked once, shocked twice
Let’s see what it can do
Man in the moon,Moon in the man
I got a rock in my throat
Up side, upside down
My tummy starts to talk


Gonna rock it till I shock it
Gonna kick it till I drop it
Love at first sight
You can kick it, you can poke it
Whoo, I think you broke it
Ooh, what about that
Skin from a snake
Blood from a stone
You know that ain’t no lie
I got hundreds of expressions, try to make a good impression
Right between the eye


I don’t mind, let me go
Right on time, I don’t know
Let me be, why not stay
I feel numb, let me play


I got wild imagination, talkin' transubstantiation
Any version will do
I got mass communication, I'm the human corporation
I ate a rock from the moon
Moon in the rock, rock in the moon
There's a moon in my throat
You might think I'm wasting time, you might laugh but not for long
Hey! I'm working it out (work it out)

Idk why some people think this track was just an album filler? This was one of the band's finest songs, I wish they played it live!

brittney meyst

People think this?!

Dario Padovan

Same people who think that burning down the house is the best song

Javier Sandoval

frank GFish21 ferrante

seems folks miss that TH albums are an LSD measured experience ... 😊💙 never is there filler - just a roller coaster of twists and bumps and dips and loops ect.... my happy place

In my opinion, the best way to interpret the lyrics of Talking Heads songs is totally literally. This song isn’t about drugs or just random lyrics that sound good, it’s about a guy who eats a moon rock.

moon rocks filled with drugs by the Portuguese!
