Subject: ADD: Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon - Origins
I was just looking at the thread for white coral bells and it reminded me of another song from my childhood that we sang in girl scouts as a round. Does anyone know the origins of the song lyrics below?

Mr. Moon, Mr. Moon, You're out too soon,
The sun is still in the sky.
Go back to your bed and cover up your head,
And wait till the day goes by.

From out the shadowed bellfrey
The owl's cry I hear,
And from the distant forest
The coo coo answers clear

Coo Coo...
