Shine On Harvest Moon
The Ink Spots
Written by Jack Norworth and Nora Bayes

This version did not chart
Four versions charted in 1909 and one in 1910
Then, in 1931 Ethel Waters put it at # 9
And, in 1943 Kate Smith took it to # 19


Shine on, shine on harvest moon up in the sky
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June, or July
Snow time ain't no time to sit outdoors and spoon
Shine on, shine on harvest moon for me 'n' my gal

MONOLOGUE: c'mon, shine on harvest moon way up there in the sky. Don'tcha
know I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June, AND July? Now, looka
here?don't you know better than to set out there in the snow 'n' spoon? c'mon, I don't
want no half moon, I want a full moon.



Oh, won't you shine on, shine on harvest moon(shine on, shine on)
Up in the sky? (shine on)
I ain't had no lovin' since January, February, June, or July
(ah-ooba, ah-ooba, ah-ooba , ah-ooh)
Don't you know you're gonna freeze to death
Settin' out there in the snow tryin' to spoon?
So shine on, shine on harvest moon for me 'n' my gal


Yeah!!
