Lyrics
Couple o' jiggers of moonlight, and add a star
Pour in the blue of a June night, and one guitar
Mix in a couple o' dreamers, and there you are
Lovers hail the moonlight cocktail

Now add a couple of flowers, a drop of dew
Stir for a couple of hours, till dreams come true
As to the number of kisses, it's up to you
Moonlight cocktails need a few

Cool it in the summer breeze
Serve it in the starlight underneath the trees
You'll discover tricks like these
Are sure to make your moonlight cocktail please

Follow the simple directions, and they will bring
Life of another complexion, where you'll be King
You will awake in the morning and start to sing
Moonlight cocktails are the thing.

Follow the simple directions, and they will bring
Life of another complexion, where you'll be King
You will awake in the morning and start to sing
Moonlight cocktails are the thing.
