Jack Norworth, 1908

The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see,
For the moon refused to shine.
Couple sitting underneath a willow tree, for love they pine,
Little maid was kinda 'fraid of darkness
So she said, I guess I'll go.
Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky,
Told the moon his little tale of woe.
Chorus:
Oh, shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky.
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June or July
Snow-time ain't no time to stay outdoors and spoon,
So shine on, shine on harvest moon for me and my gal.
2. I can't see why a boy should sigh,
When by his side is the girl he loves so true,
All he has to say is "won't you be my bride,
For I love you, why should I be telling you this secret
When I know that you can guess,"
Haverst moon will smile, shine on all the while,
If the little girl should answer yes.
Chorus:
