MOONSTRUCK
 
div
 
Moon, Moon, mischief making Moon, what are you doing there?
You seem like a fairy dream up in the midnight air
When I look at you I always know,
You will shoot me with your silver bow
Just as soon as the day-light's gone
Well, it's then I feel a foolish sort of feeling coming on.

Chorus: I'm such a silly when the Moon comes out
I hardly seem to know what I'm about
Skipping , hopping, never, never stopping
I can't keep still although I try
I'm all a-quiver when the Moon-beams glance
That is the moment when I long to dance
I can never close a sleepy eye
When the Moon comes creeping up the sky.


Moon, Moon, aggravating Moon, why do you tease me so?
I think you're inclined to wink, that isn't right you know
Ev'ry day I'll be as good as gold,
Doing ev'rything that I am told
But as soon as the sun's in bed
Well, it's then I've such a flighty little foolish little head.

Chorus: I'm such a silly when the Moon comes out
I never seem to know what I'm about
Skipping , hopping, never, never stopping
I can't keep still although I try
I'm all a-quiver when the Moon-beams glance
That is the moment when I long to dance
I can never close a sleepy eye
When the Moon comes creeping through the sky
I'm not sleeping when the Moon come creeping through the sky.
