"Shine on Harvest Moon" as written by Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth....
The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see
For the moon refused to shine
Couple sittin' underneath the willow tree
For love they'd pine

Little maid was kinda 'fraid of darkness
So she said, I guess I'll go
Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky
Told the moon his little tale - of woe...

Shine on, shine on harvest moon, up in the sky-why
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June or July
Snowtime ain't no ti-ime to stay outdoors and spoon
So shine on, shine on harve-e-est moon

Don't make-a me wait too lo-ong
My love for you is much too strong
I ain't had no, I ain't had no lovin' since
January, February, June or July
When all the skies are grey
I want to go inside and stay

So light up, oh light up
Fast or slow come past that door, and
Shi-i-i-ine on harvest moon
Gi-I've some love again
I ain't had none since a-Lord knows when
No time, ain't no time to stay outside a-and try to spoon
So shine on, shine on harvest moon
For me, for me and my gal
Pass that light, fair and kind
How much lo-ove will be mine

Harvest moon, come on, come on, come o-o-on...
Shi-ine...
