I was walking down my street in the rain.
Met you on the corner of Thirty-fourth and Lonely Hearts Lane.
You whispered something in my ear and my eyes grew wide.
"Sorry, miss, but I ain't that kind of guy."

Oh, oh

But we waltz, hand in hand, in the rain
On the Moonlight Serenade.
And I can't give you what you need,
But you helped set me free, yeah, you set me free.
On a Moonlight Serenade.

Oh, she sleeps around with this whole damn town for the money and a smile on her face.
Oh, she says, "Honey, if you ain't livin' on the edge, you're takin' up too much space."
She grabs my hand and says, "Baby, we gonna have some fun tonight.
Gonna burn this whole city to the ground, till the morning light takes us out!"

And we waltz, hand in hand, in the rain
On the Moonlight Serenade.
And I can't give you what you need,
But you helped set me free, yeah, you set me free.
On a Moonlight, moonlight.

But then, the sun begins to shine.
I said, "We're runnin' out of time."
And we part our separate ways.
But I will never forget, I will never forget that day, yeah!

When we waltz, hand in hand, in the rain
On the Moonlight Serenade.
And I can't give you what you need,
But you helped set me free, yeah, you set me free.
Oh, you set me free!
I said free, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Free, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Free, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Free, yeah yeah yeah yeah
Yeah...
