Lyrics verse 1:
PLACE PARK,
SCENE DARK,
SILV'RY 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 SILV'RY MOON.

Chorus:
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 SILV'RY BEAMS
WILL BRING LOVE'S DREAMS,
WE'LL BE CUDDLING SOON,
BY THE SILVERY MOON.

verse 2:
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 FOREVERMORE!
ACT TWO,
ALL THROUGH,
EV'RY NIGHT
THE SAME ENCORE.

Chorus:
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 SILV'RY BEAMS
WILL BRING LOVE'S DREAMS,
WE'LL BE CUDDLING SOON,
BY THE SILVERY MOON.

Lyrics VOICES HUM,
CROONING OVER MOONLIGHT BAY.
BANJOS STRUM,
TUNING WHILE THE MOONBEAMS PLAY.
ALL ALONE,
UNKNOWN THEY FIND ME,
MEMORIES LIKE THESE REMIND ME
OF THE GIRL I LEFT BEHIND ME
DOWN ON MOONLIGHT BAY.

WE WERE SAILING ALONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY,
WE COULD HEAR
THE VOICES RINGING,
THEY SEEMED TO SAY,:
YOU HAVE STOLEN HER HEART
NOW DON'T GO 'WAY!
AS WE SANG
LOVE'S OLD SWEET SONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY.

CANDLE LIGHTS GLEAMING
ON THE SILENT SHORE,
LONELY NIGHTS, DREAMING
TILL WE MEET ONCE MORE.
FAR APART,
HER HEART IS YEARNING,
WITH A SIGH,
FOR MY RETURNING.
WITH THE LIGHT OF LOVE
STILL BURNING
AS IN OF DAYS OF YORE.

WE WERE SAILING ALONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY,
WE COULD HEAR
THE VOICES RINGING,
THEY SEEMED TO SAY,:
YOU HAVE STOLEN HER HEART
NOW DON'T GO 'WAY!
AS WE SANG
LOVE'S OLD SWEET SONG
ON MOONLIGHT BAY.
