IN THE BRIGHT MOONLIGHT.
Copyright, 1893, by T. B. Harms & Co.
Words by Wm. Jerome. Music by Andrew Mack.

'Twas a beautiful night and the stars they shone bright,
Two little lovers were having a "spoon" ;
Their love they confessed as they kissed and caressed,
Only seen by the man in the moon.
He calls her his darling, his own turtle dove,
And vows that he'll ever be true;
She turns with a sigh, as a tear dims her eye.
Then he kissed her and bade her adieu.
Waltz Chorus.
While the stars were shining bright up in the heavens so high
The man in the moon was looking, and he winked the other eye;
Ev'rything seemed to be peaceful then, on that eventful night,
When two lovers parted, so gay and light-hearted, in the bright moonlight.

Now her husband one night he got awfully tight,
He'd been with the boys on a spree;
He tried hard to walk and much harder to talk;
Said he, ". My wife is waiting for me."
He hurries straight home, meets his wife at the door,
With a poker she hits him quite hard;
He tries to explain, when she hits him again,
And he has to sleep out in the yard.
Waltz Chorus.
While the stare were shining bright up in the heavens so high
The man in the moon was looking, and he winked the other eye;
Ev'rything seemed to be peaceful then on that eventful night,
When wifey licks hubby for coming home tubby, in the bright moonlight.

"Stop that thief! "was the cry, then a burglar runs by,
He's stolen a gold watch and chain;
He tries hard to fight, but his chances were slight,
For to jail he must go back again.
He pulls out a knife, but the officer shoots,
The bullet it reaches its bed;
"Oh! God, let me die! "hear the officer cry,
"For I've killed my own dear brother Ned."

Waltz Chorus.
While the stars were shining bright up in the heavens so high
The roan in the moon was looking, and a tear stood in his eye;
Everything seemed to be peaceful then on that eventful night,
On duty a brother had there killed another in the bright moonlight
