BRUCE, Jack & BROWN, Pete



Rope Ladder To The Moon


You asked me to a party

To a house just by the moon

You gave me silver loving

The end was all too soon


You asked me to the theater

In a place quite near the sun

You gave me golden sunbeams

Your act was all in fun


Rope ladder, rope ladder

Rope ladder to the moon!


You asked me to a meeting

In a cottage in the snow

You gave me central heating

I can't forget the glow


You asked me to a weekend

Down by the stormy sea

You took me to a ceremony

And the sacrifice was me!


You asked me to a storm cloud

Up near the rainbow's end

Then you threw away the ladder

And gave me to your friend


You took me to a prison

And you said its chief was me

Then you locked me deep inside you

And threw away the key


Rope ladder, rope ladder

Rope ladder to the moon!
