MOON TALK (Al Hoffman / Dick Manning (m & l) 1958) As released by Perry Como 1958 (see below) Words contained in [square brackets are sung by the chorus] Last night when the moon was bright you called me darlin' And you whispered pretty little love words in my ear Was it just moon talk, only moon talk Or did those pretty little love words mean you're sincere. [sincere] Did those pretty little love words mean you're sincere [pretty little love words mean you're sincere]. Last night when the moon was bright you said "I love you!" And you painted pretty little castles in the air Was it just moon talk, only moon talk Or did those pretty little castles mean you really care. [care] Did those pretty little castles mean you really care [those pretty little castles mean you really care]. I know that I meant every sigh When you hugged me the way you hugged me An' you kissed me the way you kissed me In the moonlight [hubba hubba hubba hubba]. Last night when you held me tight and called me darlin' And you told me that you would die if we should part Was it just moon talk, only moon talk Or did those pretty little love words come from your heart [heart] Did those pretty little love words come from your heart [pretty little love words come from your heart]. [Hmmm...moon talk...hmmm...moon talk] Makes you hug me the way you hugged me Makes you kiss me the way you kissed me In the moonlight [I love ya, love ya, love ya, love ya]. Last night when you held me tight and called me darlin' And you told me that you would die if we should part Was it just moon talk, only moon talk Or did those pretty little love words come from your heart [heart] Did those pretty little love words come from your heart [pretty little love words come from your heart].
