Thread Name: Origins: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Thought I'd share this memory:

The first time I sang this song to my little niece, she objected to the words "the moon sees me." She knew that the moon is inanimate and cannot see anyone. I had to do some fast talking about the imaginary Man in the Moon looking down at us. Thank goodness she went for it.

Kids are more intelligent than we think, sometimes.
