I have only a bit, but it's a start.
You've probably got this much, too.

BY THE LIGHT OF THE SILVERY MOON
Words by Edward Madden
Music by Gus Edwards
Introduced in Gus' vaudeville sketch in 1909

CHORUS: By the light of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon,
To my honey I'll croon love's tune.
Honeymoon,
Keep a-shining in June;
Your silv'ry beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.

Hi- That's all I ever heard of it; odds are, though, that there's a verse that goes with it. Or two.

My one true love, Julie Andrews, has a great recording of this song on her "A Little Bit of Broadway" CD, Columbia CK 44375. It has an interesting introduction, which is also printed in "Rise Up Singing":

VERSE 1: Place: Park. Scene: Dark.
Silv'ry moon is shining through the trees.
Cast: two - me, you
Sound of kisses floating on the breeze
Act One begun: Dialog - "Where would you like to spoon?"
My cue with you: "Underneath the silv'ry moon"

Words are by Edward Madden
Music by Gus Edwards

Wait! There's another verse. After Julie Andrews does what I imagine is an incredibly sexy soft shoe routine, she sings the second verse:

VERSE 2: Act two, scene new
Roses blooming all around the place.
Cast three, you, me, preacher with a solemn-looking face.
Choir sings, bell rings,
Preacher, "You are wed forevermore."
Act two, all through, ev'ry night the same encore.
By the light....

Does anyone have chords for the verses of this song? In any key - I can transpose them.
The verse being, "Place, park, scene dark..." etc.
Thank you.

Cor, this takes me back! My dad had a 78 with this on it when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. He didn't have many, so I heard this quite a lot. It was a bloke singing, possibly Al Jolson. Is that possible? I can still sing the chorus!
