MIDI File

San Toy: Have you heard there's a girl in the moon?
Chorus: Not a word!
How absurd
To have girls on the moon.
San Toy: I have often been told
Of her garment of gold
And her shimmering silver shoon,
And she carries a spangl'd fan.
Chorus: So fair!
San Toy: But she drops it when she can
Chorus: Oh, where?
San Toy: On the ebb and flow
Of the tide below,
That follows her like a man.
Chorus: Take care! Take care!
San Toy: Maid in the moon,
Maid in the moon,
Grant in benignity
Riches and dignity!
All that we ask for a holiday boon,
Maid in the moon,
Maid in the moon!
Chorus: Maid in the moon,
Maid in the moon!
Grant in benignity
Riches and dignity!
All that we ask for a holiday boon,
San Toy: Maid in the moon,
Maid in the moon!
   
Bobbie: Do you know there's a man in the moon?
Chorus: Is it so?
Will you show us the man in the moon?
Bobbie: For it's easy to trace
Ev'ry line of his face
On a beautiful night in June.
I can show you his lantern now,
Chorus: We see!
Bobbie: And his brush with its leafy bough,
Chorus: A tree
Bobbie: And his dog that's said to be so well bred,
He never remarks bow-wow!
Chorus: Dear me! Dear me!
Bobbie: Moon, moon,
Man in the moon,
Kindly attend to us,
Pack up and send to us
Something of value,
Send it soon,
Moon, moon,
Man in the moon.
Chorus: Moon, moon,
Man in the moon,
Kindly attend to us,
Pack up and send to us
Something of value,
Send it soon,
Moon, moon,
Man in the moon.
   
Poppy: There are two, I should think, in the moon.
Chorus: If it's true
Will it do
To have two in the moon?
Poppy: And I think you will own
As they're there all alone
That they ought to be married soon!
Dudley: They will live in the sky afar,
Chorus: For aye
Dudley: And be happy as mortals are,
Chorus: They may!
Dudley: And we soon may hope
Through the telescope
For a new little double star!
Chorus: Hooray! Hooray!
San Toy: Sweet honeymoon,
Sweet honeymoon,
Shining above for us,
Show us your love for us,
Drop us a gift from your fairy balloon,
Sweet honeymoon,
Sweet honeymoon!
Chorus: Sweet honeymoon,
Sweet honeymoon,
Shining above for us,
Show us your love for us,
Drop us a gift from your fairy balloon,
San Toy: Sweet honeymoon,
Sweet honeymoon!
