Walking On The Moon by The Police

Updated on April 22, 2013

The Police Walking On The Moon

Walking On The Moon is one of the best hit singles by The Police, who are a highly successful rock band made made up of Sting (vocals, bass guitar), Andy Summers (guitar, vocals) and Stewart Copeland (drums, percussion, vocals).

The band became popular throughout the world in the early 1980s, although they had started to achieve a strong audience in the UK during the late 1970's. Their first single however, Roxanne, didn't achieve success on it's original release, but the second time around it caught on, and instantly raised them to the level of a top band.

Their music is a style of rock, influenced by jazz and reggae music. Their 1983 album, Synchronicity, was number one in the UK and the US.

The band broke up in the mid-1980s, but reunited in early 2007 with the announcement that they were undertaking a world tour. The tour was scheduled from the middle of that year on until mid-2008, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of their hit single "Roxanne" and also, to a lesser extent, that of their formation as a group. As was to be expected, the success of the tour proved that the band are still major artists.

Song Lyrics: Walking On The Moon by The Police

Written by: Sting from the Album: "Reggatta de Blanc" - 1979

Giant steps are what you take

Walking on the moon

I hope my legs don't break

Walking on the moon

We could walk forever

Walking on the moon

We could live together

Walking on, walking on the moon

Walking back from your house

Walking on the moon

Walking back from your house

Walking on the moon

Feet they hardly touch the ground

Walking on the moon

My feet don't hardly make no sound

Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say

I'm wishing my days away

No way

And if it's the price I pay

Some say

Tomorrow's another day

You stay

I may as well play

Giant steps are what you take

Walking on the moon

I hope my legs don't break

Walking on the moon

We could walk forever

Walking on the moon

We could be together

Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say

I'm wishing my days away

No way

And if it's the price I pay

Some say

Tomorrow's another day

You stay

I may as well play

Keep it up, keep it up

Keep it up, keep it up

Keep it up, keep it up

Keep it up, keep it up...

(Repeat and fade)

It's great listening to the original recordings, but even better being able to watch The Police in concert. Whether you saw them years ago or recently during their new world tour, or if you haven't yet managed to see them live, this is a great way to live or re-live those great concerts.

      Okay, ashamed to admit my lack of knowledge about this band...but my first thought seeing the title to your lens...with laughter in my thoughts, well it is about time they started patroling that darned moon! Great lens, I learned that I have listened to a lot of their music, back in the day! Roxanne!!!

      I have an old Police CD that I am going to dig out and listen to today. I have enjoyed the band, and this really brings back some good memories.

      My favorite band - and one of my favorite songs by them! One small nitpick from this Police trivial guru: their first single was actually "Fall Out", released in May 1977. Andy Summers wasn't even in the band yet, but they were already The Police. :)

      Hello Poddy, really enjoyed your len. What a great song! Makes me just wanna fly out to somewhere like Fes Riads or Marrakech Riads in Morocco. Full of history and culture just like you experienced. Keep the lovely lens coming. Such a great way to meet people all over the web and learn something about them. Kerrie :-)
