1. Men are called deceivers ever
And women flirt with passion,
One true love that lasts forever is sadly out of fashion.
Moonlit madness under a pale sky
Flames that turn to ashes and then die.
All too soon the lips that kiss may learn to say Goodbye.

Once in a Blue Moon, you will meet the right one;
Once in a Blue Moon, find your dear delight one;
Then with a thrill, you know that love is true:
Once in a life time, when the Moon is Blue.

2. My slim girlie took my heart by storm with her eyes so truthful,
In that heart so softly sweet and warm dwells her image youthfull.
Maids who pass me smilingly so gay
Go without beguiling me on their way.
There's but one for me and she shall be my own some day.
