Een Shoot the Moon site laatst bijgewerkt op: 22 september 2021 ©  2021 Your multi-lingual business friend Has packed her bags and fled Leavin' only ash-filled ashtrays And the lipsticked unmade bed The mirror, on reflection Has climbed back upon the wall For the floor she found descending And the ceiling was too tall Your trouser cuffs are dirty And your shoes are laced up wrong You'd better take off your homburg 'Cause your overcoat is too long The town clock in the market square Stands waiting for the hour When its hands they both turn backwards And on meeting will devour Both themselves and also any fool Who dares to tell the time And the sun and moon will shudder And the signposts cease to sign Your trouser cuffs are dirty And your shoes are laced up wrong You'd better take off your homburg 'Cause your overcoat is too long Your trouser cuffs are dirty And your shoes are laced up wrong You'd better take off your homburg 'Cause your overcoat is too long Your trouser cuffs are dirty And your shoes are laced up wrong You'd better take off your homburg 'Cause your overcoat is too long... Procol Harum G. Brooker/K. Reid - 28/10/1967 (1) Procol Harum (let op de spelling!) was (en is) een Engelse band; in hun muziek staat het orgel centraal. Bijzonder aan de band was dat bandlid Keith Reid niet meespeelde; hij was uitsluitend de tekstschrijver. Ze scoorden (niet alleen in Nederland) tussen 1967 en 1969 drie toptien-hits: A whiter shade of pale,  Homburg en A salty dog. Het openingsnummer van hun debuut-elpee ut 1968, Conquistador, werd in 1972 nog een grote hit in een live-versie met groot orkest. Al hun hits zijn nog steeds overbekend en veel te horen.
