My moon, my man
So changeable and
Such a loveable lamb to me

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go but on

Heart on my sleeve
Not where it should be
The song's out of key again

My moon's white face
What day and what phase
It's the calendar page again

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon and me
Not as good as we've been
It's the dirtiest clean I know

My care, my coat
Leave on a high note
There's nowhere to go
There's nowhere to go

Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please
Take it slow
Take it easy on me
And shed some light
Shed some light on me please

My moon
The moon, my man
My moon
The moon, my man
My moon
The moon, my man
My moon
The moon, my man

Is "Famous in the RP song comments " a thing?  Really? Asking for a friend.

Thank God!
This is good enough to make me forget that she was responsible for the vom-inducing 'Mushaboom'.  Nearly, anyway...

OK, now that's a first. Someone referring to Feist as elevator music.
I am beaten even while writing.

wake me up when it's over
 to carry the theme, could we have REM do the lovely Man on the Moon? 

oh, REM( different song) was just on a few songs ago, so I guess we won't get this wish.
and I can definitely do without ms feist.

The beautiful Feist on-stage with Jason Collett at the Ottawa Bluesfest '06.

~~~> I feel so very lucky, her fringe needed trimming and I was available to bring my scissors, she was really nice, gave me some of her flowers, and a ticket to watch the show.  I adore her.  This picture is beautiful :)
 


                Strangely  sametime delicate and strong.
 
                             Thanks God made her
                        A helping hand with all  things
                             Needs to be forgetten.

    She looks beautifull maybe she epitomize something.
                                Is this romantic?
Song is very nice and video spot is great. Check it out on YouTube. That is, if you do not hate the song, as many do.

I love this CD for its quirkiness (if you've read my past comments, you'll see that I major in "quirky" and also in "eclectic.")  In my ears, she doesn't sound like anyone else. ESPECIALLY not Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Britney, Colby, Beonce, or a hundred others.  She's her own talent, and I'm a fan.

Ya wanna make something of it? {#Roflol}

She did a great bit on Sesame Street with her 'one two three four' song. I think there's a link here somewhere.

Okay I didn't get all the lyrics at first but love the upbeat, simpleness. Feist can 'shed the light' on anything and make it brighter. Wish i could see her dance right now.{#Bananapiano}

My favorite is the Minnesota Twins playing "Brown Sugar" over the PA at every home game.  Do they have any idea what that song is really about?  I'll bet all those families in the stands would be horrified {#Mrgreen}

Bill should follow this with Relax by Frankie Goes To Hollywood.

Just because the lyrics include "my moon my man", "dirtiest clean I know" and "take it slow, take it easy on me", doesn't mean it's about anal sex, it wouldn't bother me if it was, I just think it's a knee-jerk male assumption.
I think If anything it could be about her menstrual cycle, and how it affects her relationship...
 
Actually, I think she is referring to her cycle.  A woman's "moon" in many cultures is her menstrual cycle, not her butt!

Fly from the US to Toronto (video filmed at Pearson) and you'll be able to dance on several of these long sidewalks while you take the long, long march to baggage and customs.
good groove IMO

Either way, it's a great song, and her voice is incredible.

You know. I agree, it just may be about sex, but it could also be about timing it with her cycles (moons) either for getting pregnant or not. :think:

And I'm all for sexual innuendo but I think its quite a stretch to assume this song is about sex de booty. What's with all the running and the lyrics that are obviously not related? Scour the web and youll find some more realistic interpretations.
I don't know why people have such a hard time dealing with the fact that this might be about butt sex, and specifically, about the internal conflict a woman has when her lover wants some form of sexual gratification that she's not comfortable performing. I think it's a great theme for a song, myself. Now having said that, I scoured the web as you suggested, and I couldn't find two sites that agreed on the lyrics, much less agreed on the meanings, so the actual meaning is up in the air as far as I'm concerned.
damn you all for tainting this song ... :wall:
Man, if it wasn't for these message boards, I wouldn't think to myself "There's that buttsex song again" every time this played. Thanks RP! :cheers: (Love Feist, BTW...just feelin' snarky)

taken in context of the lyrical discussion here, the line "take it slow, take it easy on me..." has even more significance. ouch! :roflol:

It's a little (a lot) over played, but it is a break from the usual procession of oversensitive, new age devas one usually hears on RP.

From the song: "My moon and me Not as good as we've been It's the dirtiest clean I know" so what was this song about again?
Wow, what we read into things. Looked at the lyrics and can't figure that. Only way to be sure is to ask her. OK who's up for it? I suggest we draw straws.
Congrats to Feist for winning 5 Junos!

Butt sex indeed..... :hug: :heartkiss: :moon: :whipit:
Not to beat a dead horse, but after reading some of the comments about the possible allusion to some type of intercourse, I figure I would throw my 2 cents in. It's about Butt Sex.
Still better than 1/2 of todays playlist...
older yet
getting really old.
Getting pretty tired of this one...
Well maybe. But you still need to get out more.
I have read these lyrics twice thru and this song is clearly about having sex of some kind, anal or otherwise. Her reference to the calendar and the moon indicates that it's anal sex, because that's an ancient method of a) not getting pregnant and b) having sex during menses. Since there are other ways (such as the pill and a condom) of avoiding pregnancy, I think her boyfriend wants sex during her period, so she chose door #2. Yick. I'm still giving this song an 8. Amazing music and interesting lyrics. BTW: "Shed some light on me" is a reference to the place where the sun don't shine. Now let me think...where would that be? :cheesygrin:
The hustling footfalls at the end remind me so much of Stan Freberg's Banana Boat (Day-O) that I make the association and can't really appreciate this song's ending. (Whatever it may signify.)

if you'd ever programmed playlists or done live DJing you'd know you hang onto segues that work. also, Bill plays old sets when the show isn't "live". would you prefer he just queue up every song in the library, hit "random" and then never think about it again? not me!

This was voted "Album of the year 2007" recently on swedish television. I am not sure if I agree with that, but in the top 5 for sure.

The next song on the album, you hear her walking to a park and sitting down and playing her guitar.
