Silver Falls The Moonlight

Written by

by Richard Maltby (Northwestern 1936) and Jimmy Leyden


Silver falls the moonlight
It dances in her eyes
I hope that when I hold her
And kiss her, the song will never rise.

Silver falls the moonlight
The threads of moonlight spin
The magic spell around the girl
Who wears my Fiji pin.
