Good Night, Mr. Moon (1911)

Vocal Range



Honey dear, this nook is lonely; I have a fear,
Someone is near, let’s move from here.
I would feel funny if someone were to hear
Sweet nothings that you whisper in my ear.
The moon is shining, folks can’t help but know;
Bid him “good-night” and then, perhaps he’ll go.

Good-night, good-night, Mister Moon;
Hide your face so we can spoon;
We just can’t make love in front of you,
Don’t you see that we are bashful, too?
Good-night, good-night, Mister Moon;
Close your bright eyes! Won’t you go to sleep?
And don’t you dare to peep!
Good-night, Mister Moon.

Honey dear, the winds are blowing; I have a fear,
Raindrops are near, it’s lightning, dear;
I can hear thunder, we must run home quick, dear,
’Cause mother doesn’t worry when you’re near.
The moon’s so angry, tears he has to shed;
He knew just what we meant when we both said:
