The moon is like a boat my love
Of lemon peel afloat my love
And with a sail of gauze my love
She seems to slightly pause
Upon her silent way
All on her starry way

I see her pearly decks my love
Set in with diamond specks my love
I see her pearly mast my love
Far from her seashell past
And softly does she sway
All on her starry way

Of silk they have been spun my love
Her ropes that limply run my love
Down to her carved prow my love
Down to her mermaid prow
And gently does she sway
All on her starry way

She seems to link her long my love
and if spell by a song my love
I know she terries thought my love
And journey unforgot
She makes her starry way
She makes her starry way

All in the sea of sky my love
The moonships sail and fly my love
Tho' many are their kind my love
Tho' all need but one wind
To make their starry ways
To make their starry ways

And there will come a time my love
O may it be in mine my love
When men will proudly rise my love
And board to sail the skies
Moonships from all the spheres
Moonships from all the spheres

The men be bathed in light my love
The women clothed in white my love
All in that wonderous fleet my love
As each the other meets
Will smile and softly sing
Will smile and softly sing

And on some distant sand my love
The ships will gently land my love
Fair folk will meet them there my love
With flowing golden hair
And great will be their joy
and great will be their joy

The moon is like a boat my love
Of lemon peel afloat my love
And with a sail of gauze my love
She seems to slightly pause...
