ALL THE SILVER FROM THE SILVERY MOON
 
div
 

Levi had a daughter; Rachel vos her name.
She alvays vished for money; I alvays vished the same.
Of money I've got nothing, but I love her don't you see,
And ven I get some money Rachel's going to marry me.
I asked her father for her hand,
He said to me 'No fear
You get some money first my boy.'
Well I struck upon a fine idea.

Tomorrow I'll borrow a big balloon
And sail right up into the sky.
For there's something I vant up there up there
That vill make me a millionaire.
(vith lots of money to spare)
I must have some money to marry my honey
And ven I get back in that balloon
I'm going to give my pretty Rachel all the silver
That I get from the silvery moon.

Tomorrow I'll borrow a big balloon
And sail right up into the sky.
For there's something I vant up there up there
That vill make me a millionaire.
(vith lots of money to spare)
I must have some money to marry my honey
And ven I get back in that balloon
I'm going to give my pretty Rachel all the silver
That I get from the silvery moon.

Never sigh for the silvery moon,
I never cry for a silver spoon.
I never cried in my life.
I'm alvays laughing.
Klondyke in Australia
It's a fine place I am told
You can get the easier fortune;
That's a place to make the gold.
But it's much too far to valk there,
And the sea it makes me sick,
But the place I've got my eye on
You can get the money quick.
Vhen I come back I'll buy my Rachel
Pretty things and clothes.
She'll have rings upon her fingers
And diamonds upon her toes.

Tomorrow I'll borrow a big balloon
And sail right up into the sky.
For there's something I vant up there up there
That vill make me a millionaire.
(vith lots of money to spare)
I must have some money to marry my honey
And ven I get back in that balloon
I'm going to give my pretty Rachel all the silver
That I get from the silvery moon.

Tomorrow I'll borrow a big balloon
And sail right up into the sky.
For there's something I vant up there up there
That vill make me a millionaire.
(vith lots of money to spare)
I must have some money to marry my honey
And ven I get back in that balloon
I'm going to give my pretty Rachel all the silver
That I get from the silvery moon.

Oy! Oy! Oy! Did you hear that music?
