Lyrics Edit

The moon was yellow, and the night was young.
A smile brought us together
And I was wond'ring whether
We'd meet again someday.

The moon was yellow, and a song was sung.
That vocal inspiration
Gave me the inclination
To give my heart away.

Here we are, is our romance to continue?
Will it be my luck to win you?
May I look that far?

Ah! My love is mellow, and all my hopes are strung
Around that Cupid fellow,
Behold the moon is yellow
And the night is young.
