"Moonlight Serenade" as written by Glenn Miller and Mitchell Parish....
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 me dreaming.
My love, do you know
That your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you, and I sing you a moonlight serenade.

Let us stray 'til break of day
In love's valley of dreams.
Just you and I, a summer sky,
A heavenly breeze, kissin' the trees.

So don't 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 CommentThis is such a short and simple tune, but perhaps one of the most beautiful and romantic ever written. If you love the serenity of the moonlight and the quiet night as much as I, you can feel the warmth and love as these two people are standing under the skies absorbed in each other. All they see is the moon's relection in their lover's eyes. Together they drown out the rest of the world; it's as if no one else exists for that moment in time. I am a big Sinatra fan, but for me Carly Simon's version is best (which is odd because I am not a big Simon fan:).
