Verse:
Shades of night are creep -ing, Wil -low trees are weep -ing,
Old folks and ba -bies are sleep -ing;
Sil -ver stars are gleam -ing, All a -lone I'm schem -ing,
Schem -ing to get you out here, my dear, -Come
 
Chorus:
Tip -toe to the win -dow, by the win -dow, That is where I'll be,
Come tip -toe thru the tu -lips with me;
Tip -toe from your pil -low, to the sha -dow of a wil -low tree,
And tip -toe thru the tu -lips with me;
Knee deep in flow -ers we'll stray
We'll keep the show -ers a -way; And if I
Kiss you in the gar -den, in the moon -light, Will you par -don me,
Come tip -toe thru the tu -lips with me.
