Willows were swaying
The water was rippling
The froggies were singing

Along with the laughing at the bank
We have the moon to thank
For this lovely scene we might never have seen
If it hadn't been for the moon

Why look at that moon?

Away up high, seeing everything
That goes by, why look at that moon
Why, why, why look at the moon?
Why, why, why look at the moon?

Sitting in the desert
Beneath a lonesome sky
Cool, my oh my, it would be

If it never have been above
That fateful little boy
That one who has beheld
True love through history

Why must it start?
Why must the lovers part?
And why does the cheatin' go on?
Why have hearts turned to stone?

Why look at that moon?

Away up high, seeing everything
That goes by, why look at that moon
Why, why, why look at the moon?
Why, why, why look at the moon?

Why look at that moon?
Ain't it grand?
Why look at that moon?
Helps me understand

Why look at that moon?
Inspirator of many a dream
Why look at that moon?
