Watching And Waiting
The Moody Blues
Moody Blues 1969 Watching Waiting 45
Watching and waiting
For a friend to play with
Why have I been alone so long
Mole he is burrowing his way to the sunlight
He knows there's someone there so strong

'Cos here there's lot of room for doing
The things you've always been denied
Look and gather all you want to
There's no one here to stop you trying
