The moon was yellow and the [E7-9]night was young
A smile brought us to - geth - er, and I was wond'- ring wheth - er
We'd meet a - gain some day.

The moon was yellow and a [E7-9]song was sung,
That vo - cal in - spi - ra - tion gave me the in - cli - na - tion
To give my heart a - way!

Here we are. Is our ro - mance to con - tin - ue?
Will it be my luck to win you?
May I look that far?

My love is mellow and my [E7-9]hopes are strung
A - round that cu - pid fel - low. Be - hold! The moon is yel - low,
And the night is young.
