Well the clouds were bridesmates and the North Star was the best man
At the marriage of the sun and moon
Seven days later the earth was conceived
When the dish ran away with the spoon

Sadly it ended in divorce
Because the sun got a little too hot
When they made a settlement for the earth
The sun cast the shorter lot

The moon lost its shine when it started to drink
As the sun moved its distance away
With a longing for visitation rights
Lasting longer than half a day


from 41, released January 1, 2000

Starting with 42 (aka Clinton, aka overdue baby) and continuing in reverse order, all recordings are implicitly named and numbered according to past U.S. Presidents and a week of gestation.
