The Lyrics

Moon Sliver,
Such a skinny strand,
No astronaut could land
On you....

Old space peasant,
Petite crescent,
You're so fingernail-ish
And pale-ish of blue...

Cheese sample,
High above the world
More sky above the world,
We see....

But you're cheating us,
So it seems..
Could use a few more beams
Counting on your gleams,
My lover, and me

Not ample,
Far above the world
For seashore'd boy and girl
To see...

And you're cheating us,
So it seems..
We need a few more beams
Brighter on your gleams,
Moon sliver, please be...

Nice take on this old favorite...Andy Williams was the best singer and showman that I've never seen or heard ( in person that is)...but I wish I had....Looks like I'll be humming Moon Sliver for a while...Thank you AFW

Thanks, Dave...I agree, Andy was one of my favorites, too...I never caught him in person, either, but never missed his tv shows..and Christmas Specials

Was in Branson last week but didn't have time to see anything. The moon was in its full phase. I did a take on "Moon Sliver" a couple years ago, but with a different meaning for the word "moon". A nice set of romantic lyrics you have here.

Thanks, Patrick.....I forgot to check "Search" on this...just checked it...I see I'd commented on, too, back 2011...I see John B did one, also....both were excellent....About Branson, if you meant to see Andy...he passed on earlier this year..
