Cry one time for the Man in the Moon
Cry for the Old Man and the Sea
Cry once for hope
Cry once for us and the way things turned out to be

Cry for tomorrow, cry for today
Cry for the lives that we've frittered away

Cry one time for the harvester's plight
Cry for the old man on his knees
Cry once for all
Then cry for the dawn of the day neither one of us wanted to see
