VERSE 01: Place park, scene dark,/Silv’ry moon is shining thro’ the trees;/Cast two, me, you,/Sound of kisses floating on the breeze./Act one, begun/Dialogue, “Where would you like to spoon?”/My cue, with you,/Underneath the silv’ry moon.
CHORUS: By the light of the silv’ry moon,/I want to spoon./To my honey I’ll croon love’s tune,/Honeymoon keep a shining in June,/Your silv’ry beams will bring love dreams,/We’ll cuddling soon,/By the silvery moon
VERSE 02: Act two, scene new,/Roses blooming all around the place;/Cast three, you, me,/Preacher with a solemn looking face./Choir sings, bell rings/Preacher: “You are wed forever more.”/Act two, all through,/Ev’ry night the same encore.
