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 COME AWAY WITH ME, LUCILLE,
IN MY MERRY OLDSMOBILE.
DOWN THE ROAD OF LIFE WE FLY,
AUTOMO-BUBBLING, YOU AND I.
TO THE CHURCH
WE'LL SWIFTLY STEAL,
THEN OUR WEDDING BELLS
WILL PEAL
YOU CAN GO AS FAR AS YOU LIKE WITH ME
IN MY MERRY OLDSMOBILE.

Lyrics SCHOOL DAYS,
SCHOOL DAYS,
DEAR OLD
GOLDEN RULE DAYS.
READIN'
AND WRITIN'
AND 'RITHMETIC.
TAUGHT
TO THE TUNE
OF A HICK'RY STICK.
YOU WERE MY QUEEN
IN CALICO.
I WAS YOUR BASHFUL
BAREFOOT BEAU.
AND YOU WROTE
ON MY SLATE,
I LOVE YOU JOE,
WHEN WE WERE
A COUPLE OF KIDS.

MARY HAD A LAMB,
HIS FLEECE
WAS WHITE AS SNOW.
MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB,
HIS FLEECE
WAS WHITE AS SNOW.
AND EV'RYWHERE
THAT MARY WENT
THE LAMB
WAS SURE TO GO.

HUMPTY,
HUMPTY DUMPTY,
SAT UPON A WALL.
HUMPTY DUMPTY
ON A WALL,
HUMPTY DUMPTY
HAD A FALL.
ALL THE KING'S HORSES
AND HIS MEN
COULDN'T PUT
HUMPTY BACK AGAIN.

LITTLE JACKY HORNER,
SITTIN' IN A CORNER.
LITTLE JACK HORNER
IN A CORNER
EATIN' HIS CHRISTMAS PIE.
HE STUCK IN HIS THUMB,
PULLED OUT A PLUM,
SAID,
WHAT A GREAT GUY
AM I!

SIMPLE,
SIMPLE SIMON,
GOING TO THE FAIR.
SIMPLE SIMON
MET A PIE MAN
GOING TO THE FAIR.
SAID SIMPLE SIMON
TO THE PIE MAN,
LET ME TASTE
YOUR WARE.

PETER,
LITTLE PETER,
WAS A PUMPKIN EATER.
PETER PETER,
PUMPKIN EATER,
HAD A WIFE
AND COULDN'T
KEEP HER.
PUT HER IN
A PUMPKIN SHELL
AND NOW HE KEEPS
HER VERY WELL.

RING AROUND THE ROSES,
POCKET FULL OF POSES.
RIDE SALLY RIDE,
WIPE
YOUR WEEPIN' EYES.
LIL' SALLY WALKER,
SITTIN' IN A SAUCER.
TURN TO THE EAST,
TURN TO THE WEST.
LIL' SALLY WALKER,
SITTIN' IN A SAUCER.
TURN TO THE ONE,
AND HAVE
A LITTLE FUN.

GO IN
AND OUT
THE WINDOW,
GO IN
AND OUT
THE WINDOW.
GO HOME
AND GET YOUR DINNER,
AND HURRY BACK
TO SCHOOL.
