By the Light of the Silvery Moon

This early 20th century Tin Pan Alley number was written by Gus Edwards and Edward Madden and was first performed in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1909.  Betsy and Tyler croon love’s tune with our very DIY “By the Light of the Silvery Moon“!

Place: Park
Scene: Dark
Silvery moon is shinin' through the trees
Cast: two
Sound of kisses floating through the breeze
By the light of the silvery moon
I want to spoon
To my honey I'll croon love's tune
Keep a shinin' in June
Your silvery beams will bring love's dreams
We'll be cuddling soon
By the silvery moon
