COME OFF O' THE MOON.

'Way up in the moon is my dear one,
I know He's in love with me;
I know that his heart I have captured;
He always is smiling at me;
Each night about eight I sit by the gate
And watch for my sweet one above;
And when he appears, I greet him with cheers,
And sing to my own darling love.
Come off o' the moon, Just to please me;
Come off o' the moon; don't you tease me;
Stop winking at me, 'cause mamma might see,
And catch you al flirting with me, love;
Come off o' the moon just a minute,
And tell me that no one is in it with you
Except me, how happy I'd be;
Come off o' the moon, now do.
His ways they are really bewitching,
His eyes they are ever so bright;
Whenever my mamma is looking,
A cloud hides him quickly from sight;
It fills me with bliss when he throws a kiss,
And bids me good-night from above;
To-morrow at eight I'll be at the gate,
And sing to my own darling love:-Chorus.
