"Moonlight Serenade" as written by Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland and Edward Holland....
I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight.
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night.
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets medreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and sing you a Moonlight Serenade.

Let us stray till break of day
in love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky,
a heavenly breeze kissing the trees.

So don' let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night.
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,
a love song, my darling, a Moonlight Serenade.

    General CommentI want a guy to stand outside my window and sing this to me at night!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE this song, makes a great piano or clarient solo too. Such a beautiful melody, and was also the last song that Glenn played with his orchestra before going off to war where he dissapeared.
