Verse 1: Place park. Scene dark.
Silv’ry moon is shining though the trees.
Cast two. Me, you. Sound of kisses floating on the breeze.
Act one, begun. Dialogue: “Where would you like to spoon?”
My cue. “With you, underneath the silv’ry moon.”

Chorus: By the light of the silvery moon, I want to spoon
To my honey I’ll croon love’s tune.
Honeymoon, keep a-shining in June.
Your silv’ry beams will bring love dreams.
We’ll be cuddling soon by the silvery moon.

Verse 2: Act two. Scene new:
Roses blooming all around the place.
Cast three: you, me, preacher with a solemn looking face.
Choir sings. Bell rings.
Preacher: “You are wed forevermore.”
Act two, all through. Ev’ry night the same encore.
