I can see you up on high, Big Lady Moon! Sweetly shining in the sky, Big Lady Moon! Is it 'cos you’re glad I'm here? Like to feel that I am near? That you shine so bright and clear? Big Lady Moon, Big Lady Moon! Hark! I hear my nursie calling, Big Lady Moon! For she says the dew is falling, Big Lady Moon! So you see I'll have to go, I hope you won’t be lonely though, 'Cos I love you ever so, Big Lady Moon, Big Lady Moon!
