New Blue Moon

Waiting for this girl
Is like waiting for blue moons.
Sightings are quite rare.

"New Blue Moon" from the second Traveling Wilburys album nearly didn't make it into this collection as it feels much more like a George Harrison song. Still, Bob gets a decent slice of the minimal lyrics to himself, the verse that begins with "So many moons have come and gone." Because of that, I included it. I think the words and their relationship to the haiku are clear.

I don't want nothing
Nothing but you
Am I waiting
Looking for a new blue moon

I'm so tired waiting
Waiting for you
Am I waiting
Looking for a new blue moon

So many moons have come and gone
And none of them were blue
Too many times the sun came up
But it came up without you, you, ya yoo hoo oo

You don't call me
Call me lonely
Am I waiting
Looking for a new blue moon

So many moons have come and gone
And none of them were blue
Too many times the sun came up
But it came up without you, you, you, ya yoo hoo oo

Someday when you hold me
Someday you may see
I was waiting
Looking for a new blue moon
I was waiting
Looking for a new blue moon

Blue moon
