Lyrics
Maddie's Moon© Ken Smith (03/12/2012) Must be a million stars, in a springtime Texas sky Although they seem so far away; we can touch them if we try I'd reach up & capture Jupiter; maybe Venus too; a thousand sparkling others & give them all to you Then add one to the universe; and call it Maddie's Moon Heavens shining brightly; and a smile upon your face Driving down a country road; at a Lone Star country pace Everything here below seems exactly right; God's creation we behold on a starry Texas night And just to make you happy; I'd hang the moon for you Yesterday a toddler; a young lady now you are Nine years old, more beautiful; than any rising star If I had within my power, what I'd ask God to do; is shape another planet, paint it pink and purple too Then hang it in the Texas sky, and call it Maddie's Moon I'd give you all the flowers found in April, May and June And take a couple hours to write a special tune Then sing it on your birthday; underneath the Maddie Moon And sing it on your birthday; underneath the Maddie Moon
