I Told the Moon Tonight (US)
Words & Music by Helene Polun, From the Singing of Janet Lawson

I told the moon, up in the sky tonight,
About my lost love, and things just don't seem right.
The stars above,they make me feel so blue,
For I know my darling, that you have been untrue.
And now my sweetheart, since I know you've gone away,
I know that I shall never recapture your love so gay.
But I still want you, and long to hold you tight,
Because I love you, I told the moon tonight.
I told the moon tonight.
