Lyrics:

Just another waltz beneath the red moon
Just another kiss before we part
Let me tell my love beneath the red moon
Dancing with you, sweetheart
Hold me in your arms, for day is downing
Starlight will leave us soon
Just another waltz before the morning
Under the red red moon.
While the violins are playing
We’ll be swaying to and fro
And it seems your eyes are saying
That you love me, love me so
While the music of the cello
Sings its haunting melody
You can watch the red moon mellow
And leave the rest to me.
Just another waltz beneath the red moon
Just another kiss before we part
Let me tell my love beneath the red moon
Dancing with you, sweetheart
Hold me in your arms for day is dawning
Starlight will leave us soon
Just another waltz before the morning
Under the red red moon.
Under the red red moon.
