Words by Edward Madden

By the light of the silv'ry moon I want to spoon
To my honey I'll croon love's tune
Honey moon, keep a-shinin' in June
Your silv'ry beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddlin' soon by the silv'ry moon

Place? Park
(Scene dark)
Silv'ry moon is shining through the trees
(Cast: two) Me, you
(Summer kisses floating on the breeze)
Act one (Be done)
Dialog "where wouldja like to spoon?"
(My cue) With you
(Underneath the silv'ry moon)

(By the light of the silv'ry moon I wanna spoon)
(To my honey I'll croon love's tune)
(Honey moon, keep a-shinin' in June)
(Your silv'ry beams will bring love's dreams)
(We'll be cuddlin' soon by the silv'ry moon)

(Act two. Scene new)
Roses blooming all around the place
(Cast three) You, me,
Preacher with a solemn-looking face
(Choirs sings, bell rings)
(Preacher: "You are wed forever more")
(Act two all though)
Ev'ry night the same encore

By the light (not the dark but the light) of the silvery moon (not the sun but the moon)
I wanna spoon (not croon but spoon)
To my honey I'll croon love's tune
Honeymoon (honey moon, honey moon), keep a-shinin' in June
Your silv'ry beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddlin' soon by the silvery moon
(The silv'ry moon)
