By The Light Of The Silv'ry Moon
Apart from "beams" and "dreams," the entire rhyme scheme of the refrain describing this appealing summertime tryst is confined to the "oon" sound, possibly the most delightful example of rhyming frugality to be found. The number, long a barbershop quartet favorite, was introduced in 1909 by child singer Georgie Price, planted in theater audiences as part of Gus Edwards' vaudeville sketch School Boys and Girls. Later the same year it helped brighten the Ziegfeld Follies.

The Ol'Kunnel's barber, Bill Rohrbaugh, has probably sung this many times in his barber shop quartet society meetings and expositions. (grin)
By The Light Of The Silvery Moon,
I want to spoon,
To my honey I'll croon love's tune.
Honey moon;
Keep ashining in June;
Your silv'ry beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.
