From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 12 Oct 13 - 04:20 PM

Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth, 1913

When you're spooning late at night and
Mister moon is shining bright above you,
Do be careful, For he's watching you,
Better keep out of sight-
When you whisper in her ear
My little dear I am sincere and love you,
Breath it softly,
So old Moony can't hear-
He looks right down from up above,
Just when you start in making love,
He's the real old eye that never sleeps at all.

Oh, You Pinkerton detective,
Pinkerton detective moon,
If you would only mind your own affairs,
My lady love and I could marry soon-
Oh, You Pinkerton detective,
Pinkerton detective moon-
There is mighty little kissing that
your eagle eye is missing,
Oh. you Pinkerton detective
Foxy old detective, Pinkerton detective moon.

Boys and girls should recolect
that often when they least expect to find him,
He'll be right there, looking down at you,
Wishing he was there too.-
When you kiss, don't kiss too loud,
Or he'll pop out behind a cloud and find you,
And surprise you,
That is always his cue,
I guess he's lonesome way up there,
And he's looking for some lady fair,
If he finds her he will let us all alone.
