I Prefer the Moonlight


When temptin' eyes 'cross the room
Said to me I'd love to be with you
I'm not tempted for a moment
I just think about my woman
My baby calls me on the phone
Telling me I need to hurry home
Well the hurryin' is easy
'Cause she's waiting up
With all the love I'm needin'

I prefer the moonlight, and a blanket
And the one right little lady by my side
That's what I like
I prefer a late drive down the turnpike
With the moonlight shinin' so bright
Got her by my side
That's what I'd like
When it's magic moment time,
I prefer the moonlight

The river plays a quiet song
She and I lay down and play along
She's her mother's lovely daughter
Moonlight dances on the water
The moon is full and so am I
I look at her and feel like I could cry
But my tears contain no sorrow
'Cause I know she'll wake up by my side tomorrow

I prefer...

Mornin' noon and night,
When the feelin' comes around
Somewhere in some sky
That ol' moon is surely shinin' bright

I prefer...
