VP_008896 Verse 1Two lovers were wooing And turtledove cooing, The moon was just peeping o'er the hill; The fellow felt "yummy", The girl rather chummy, She cuddled up closer to him still, He hugged her and kissed her, But not like a sister, The moon looked embarressed and ashamed; His glance it was freezing, But the fellow kept squeezing, And very politely he exclaimed. Chorus 1Oh, won't you please excuse me, Won't you please excuse me Mister Moon! I've got the girl, the time the place, And I want a chance to spoon. Just hide your face behind a cloud or two, Then you won't be shocked at any thing we do, Oh! won't you, won't you pleaseexcuse me, Mister Moon, Oh! Verse 2The stars were a winking, The moon he was blinking, A soft cooling breeze began to blow, The girl said, "Oh Willie, I feel rather chilly Just put both your arms around me so", He did to the letter, She said, "I feel better", And close to his face she laid her head, The moon he turned yellow, So then once more the fellow, Looked up with a smile to him and said.
