ME AND THE MAN IN THE MOON James V Monaco (m) Edgar Leslie (l) 1928 as rec by Helen Kane w Leonard Joy & his Band Dec 20th 1928 New York also rec by- The California Ramblers '28 Cliff Edwards '28 Arthur Jarrett w Ted Weems & his Orch '28 Erwin Taylor w Bill Haid & his Cubs '28 Gregor & son Gregorians '29 Arnold Johnson & his Orch Why did my sweet leave me? Why did we have to part? You know, no other sweetie can relieve me Of this aching heart. Why can't I have the sunshine, The sunshine instead of gloom? Why must I have these little shadows Creeping in my room? When the night is dark and peaceful, Nothing possible in view, There's two lonesome people in the whole wide world, It's me, the man in the moon. When the little birds are nesting And I listen to them croon, There are two lonesome people in the whole wide world, It's me, the man in the moon. While I lie there counting sheep, Through my window he comes to peep, And with each other we're sympathising! Oh, I'm looking at those happy people While they sit around and swoon. There's two lonesome people in the whole wide world, It's me, the man in the moon. Oh, but if my sweetie keeps me waiting, You know what I'm gonna do? I'll get another sweetie soon! Bacause there's two lonesome people in the whole wide world, It's me, the man in the moon. Oh, how I miss his ukelele, And the way he strums those tunes! 'Cause there's two lonesome people in the whole wide world, It's me, the man in the moon. When the sleepy shadows fall And the boogey man comes to call, I need two lovable arms around me. You know, and if my sweetie keeps me waiting, You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna get myself a big balloon, a big one, And I'll travel through the air in that big balloon, And have a love affair with the man in the moon! (Contributed by Peter Akers - April 2009)
