I stand at the gate,
And the song that I sing is of moonlight;
I stand and I wait
For the touch of your hand in the June night;
The roses are sighing a moonlight serenade.
The stars are aglow,
And tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know
That your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and sing you a moonlight serenade.
Let us stray 'til the break of day
In love's valley of dreams,
Just you and I, a summer sky,
A heavenly breeze kissing the trees.
So don't let me wait;
Come to me tenderly in the June night,
I stand at the gate
And I sing you a song in the moonlight;
A love song, my darling, a moonlight serenade.
