My Sweethearts The Man In The Moon

My Sweethearts The Man In The Moon
(Hames Thorton)

Everybody has a sweetheart underneath the rose
Everybody loves a body, so the old song goes
I’ve a sweetheart, you all know him just as well as me
Every evening I can see him shortly after tea

My sweetheart’s the man in the moon
I’m going to marry him soon
would fill me with bliss, just to give him one kiss
But I know that a dozen I never would miss
I’ll go up in a great big balloon
And see my sweetheart in the moon
Then behind some dark cloud
Where no one is allowed
I’ll make love to the man in the moon

I have often wondered where he spends his time all day
Perhaps he had another sweetheart many miles away
Maybe some sweet, dark-haired maiden daily does he woo
But as long as I don’t catch him, I’ll believe him true

Last night while the stars brightly shone
He told me through Loves Telephone
That when we were wed, he’d go early to bed
And never stay out with the boys, so he said
We are going to marry next June
The wedding takes place in the moon
A sweet little Venus
We’ll fondle between us
When I wed my old man in the moon
