[Verse 1]
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.

By the light of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon
To my honey I’ll croon love’s tune,
Honeymoon keep ashining in June,
Your silv’ry beams will bring love dreams,
We’ll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.

[Verse 2]
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 forevermore.”
Act two, all through,
Ev’ry night the same encore.
