By the Light of the Silvery Moon

This Tin Pan Alley song was first published in 1908 and subsequently recorded by Fats Waller, Doris Day, Little Richard, and Etta James. Its up-tempo beat makes it a wonderful addition to a wedding reception or other party.

This piece can be played on pedal harp or lever harp.



Lyrics

Place park, scene dark, silvery moon is shining through the trees;
Cast two, me, you, sound of kisses floating on the breeze.
Act one, begun. Dialogue, "Where would you like to spoon?"
My cue, with you, underneath the silvery moon.

By the light of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon, to my honey I'll croon love's tune,
Honeymoon keep a shining in June,
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams, we'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.

Act two, scene new, roses blooming all around the place;
Cast three, you, me, Preacher with a solemn looking face.
Choir sings, bell rings, Preacher: "You are wed for evermore."
Act two, all through, every night the same encore.
