Bright Silv'ry Light Of The Moon (A Frank Willis)
See also: By The Bright Silvery Light Of The Moon (Ryan's Fancy)

It was early in the spring in the merry month of May,
And the roses and the heather were in bloom;
A young lady passed me by and she gave me a glad eye,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon.

Well, I looked her up and down and my heart fell to the ground,
And I thought that I would marry her real soon;
We got tied up right away in a town in Bell Isle Bay,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon.

Well, it started getting late and she asked for me to wait,
But when I got up to the door of her bedroom;
Right there upon the chair was her teeth and her false hair,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon.

There was more for me in store when she began to snore,
And she nearly threw the blanket 'cross the room;
And there among the pegs was her great big wooden leg,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon.

Well, I grabbed her by the head and I dragged her out of bed,
And like a well-trained dog she laid there in the nude;
It would break a million hearts to see all of her spare parts,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon.

So, young men, take my advice: always look them over twice,
For they're always out to get you much too soon;
Pull her teeth and pull her hair, for to see that she's all there,
By the bright silv'ry light of the moon..........
