"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 till 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:).
