Bright Silv'ry Light of the Moon

It was early in the sping in the merry month of May
& the roses and the heather were in bloom
A young lady passed me by, and she gave me a glad eye
By the bright silvry light of the moon

Well I looked her up & down & my heart fell to the ground
& I thought that I would marry her real soon
We got tied up right away in a town in Bell Isle bay
By the bright silvry light of the moon

Well it started getting late & she asked for me to wait
But when I got up to the door of her bedroom
And there upon the chair was her teeth and her false hair
By the bright silvry light of the moon

There was more for me in store, when she began to snore
And she nearly threw the blanket cross the room
And there among the pegs was her great big wooden leg
By the bright silvry light of the moon

Well I grabbed her by the head & I dragged her out of bed
& like a well-trained dog she laid there in the nude
It would break a million hearts to see all of her spare parts
By the bright silvry light of the moon

So young men take my advice; always look them over twice
For they're always out to get you much too soon
Pull her teeth & pull her hair, for to see that she's all Sthere
By the bright silvry light of the moon..........
