1909 sheet music cover.

Place park, scene dark,
Silv'ry moon is shining thro' 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.

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 dreaams,
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 forevermore."
Act two, all through,
Ev'ry night the same encore.

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 dreaams,
We'll be cuddling soon
By the silvery moon.
