- I stand at your gate and
the song that I sing is of moonlight,
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night,
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade.
- The stars are aglow and
tonight how their light sets me dreaming.
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and sing you a Moonlight Serenade.
- Let us stray 'till break
of day in love's valley of dreams,
Just you and I, a summer sky, a heavenly breeze kissing the trees.
- So don't let me wait, come
to me tenderly in the June night,
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight,
A love song, my darling, a Moonlight Serenade.
