No. 20 - Song - Mary and Chorus - "Moonstruck"

MIDI File

Mary: 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 daylight's gone,
Well, it's then I feel a foolish sort of feeling coming on!
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 moonbeams 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!
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 moonbeams 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!
   
Mary: 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!
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 moonbeams 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!
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 moonbeams 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!
