TURN OFF YOUR LIGHT, MR. MOON-MAN From the Broadway Musical "Little Miss Fix-It" (1911) (Fred Barnes / R. P. Weston) Nora Bayes & Jack Norworth (Broadway Production) - 1911 JACK: When the Moon is shining yellow And a girl is with her fellow Both are getting nice and mellow It's a surprise to find If the Moon-Man should discover Sweethearts meeting under cover Can you blame that girl and lover If they say "Turn off that light" Turn off your light, Mr. Moon-Man Go and hide your face behind the clouds Can't you see that couples wanna spoon, Man Two is company and three's a crowd When each little lad and lady Find a spot so nice and shady That's your cue to say "Goodnight, Goodnight" And if they wanna spoon Listen Mr. Moon Be a sport and turn off your light NORA: All the lads and little misses Who are fond of hugs and kisses Must remember half of bliss Is found on any cloudy night Nighttime is the time for spooning Serenades and lovers crooning Preliminary honeymooning Calls for darkness, not for light BOTH: Turn off your light, Mr. Moon-Man Go and hide your face behind the clouds Can't you see that couples wanna spoon, Man Two is company and three's a crowd When each little lad and lady Find a spot so nice and shady That's your cue to say "Goodnight, Goodnight" And if they wanna spoon Listen Mr. Moon Be a sport and turn off your light (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2006)
