The Moon Is Made Of Gold

  • written by Richard Loris Jones


    Don’t feel bad because the sun went down
    The night has wealth untold
    Just keep watching and you soon will see
    The Moon is Made of Gold

    Now the stars appear
    And as they do
    Heaven they unfold
    Don’t feel bad because the sun went down
    The Moon is Made of Gold

    See how the shadows
    Enhanced by the light above
    Dance in the night
    As the breezes sigh,­
    Soon you will be asleep
    Into your dreams will creep
    Visions of fairies flying through the sky

    And one by one
    Your dreams will all come true
    Magic you’ll behold
    Don’t feel bad because the sun went down
    The Moon is Made of Gold

    See how the shadows
    Enhanced by the light above
    Dance in the night
    As the breezes sigh
    Soon you will be asleep
    Into your dreams will creep
    Visions of fairies flying through the sky

    One by one
    Your dreams will all come true
    The night has a treasure in store for you
    The night is magic
    And The Moon is Made of Gold.
