I looked at you and suddenly, something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me.   
It's that old devil moon That you stole from the sky,
It's that old devil moon in your eyes.

You and your glance make this romance too hot to handle;
Stars in the night blazin' their light can't hold a candle
To your razzle dazzle.

You've got me flyin' high and wide on a magic carpet ride,
Full of butterflies inside; 
Wanna cry, wanna croon, wanna laugh like a loon -
It's that old devil moon in your eyes.
Just when I think I'm free as a dove,
Old devil moon deep in your eyes blinds me with love.

(Instrumental)

I wanna cry, wanna croon, wanna laugh like a loon -
It's that old devil moon in your eyes.

Just when I think I'm free as a dove,
Old devil moon deep in your eyes blinds me with love.
It blinds me with love.
