: Has anyone heard "hung the moon." from the song "two dozen roses" it goes.... "If I really coulda hung the moon, would it change your mind?"
hang the moon, to phr [20C] (US) to be very important: thus _think
one hung the moon_, to think very highly of oneself. [only someone
very important, e.g. God, could have _hung the moon_ in the sky]
