Jerry´s jelling at the man in the moon
He´s right outside of my window
He acts like a madman from time to time
I hope he brings it to a crescendo soon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon

Jerry rides his skateboard down the street
He´s thirty-seven years old with six children
He sees the world through a ten year old boy´s eyes
He doesn´t even notice that it´s raining outside
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon

But sometimes he cries
He wants me to console him
But I know he´s lying about
Everything he told me

Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Says he prayed to suffer the consequences
What is his penalty for his immaturity
Will he be cast into eternal darkness
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
Jerry´s yelling at the man in the moon
