I've heard all about the tune that's called the alabama moon
But the mississippi moon is just as bright
And I can't forget the time
When I asked you to be mine
But the moon was shining on that happy night
And you promised me then you would wed me in june
That's why I love the mississippi moon

Oh the mississippi moon is smiling down tonight
And love just seems to fill the air
Thee wipplewills are plitting in it's mellow light
And calling to be lovers there
Let us stroll once again down to dear ol lovers lane
Where nature seems to softly croon
All the hearts will be so light while we wander there tonight
Underneath that mississippi moon

Yodel

Many years have come and gone since I met you there alone
But tonight I'm thinking just as much of you
As I did when hand and hand
We wandered in that magic land
Where we gave our pledge to love each other true

Come and go back with me
To that spot in memory
Just to see again that mississippi moon

Oh the mississippi moon is smiling down tonight
And love just seems to fill the air
The wipplewills are plitting in it's mellow light
And calling to be lovers there

Let us stroll once again down to dear ol lovers lane
Where nature seems to softly croon
All the hearts will be so light while we wander there tonight
Underneath that mississippi moon

Yodel again
