Shiny shiny silver moon,
Come down to me very soon,
High amidst the stars that shine,
How I wish to make you mine!
There are nights when you seem whole,
How delighted feels my soul!
There are nights when you just shrink,
Oh, my heart–it seems to sink.
All the places that I go,
You somehow just seem to know,
Far across and miles away,
Watching me you always stay.
Do you love the songs I sing?
Tell me what joy does it bring?
Hold my hands and talk to me,
Lonely never I shall be.
