There's A Ring Around The Moon

There's A Ring Around The Moon

(Edw.G.Nelson / Sam Lewis / Al Goodhart)

Ray Noble & his New Mayfair Dance Orchestra


There's a ring around the moon
That's the wedding they say
Honey, hold out your finger
It's only our way

There's a ring around the moon
That the heavens have made
Honey, hold out your finger
And don't be afraid

I know that you'll agree
Jewellery can't be afforded by some
But honey, look and see honestly
That beats all kinds of platinum

There's a ring around the moon
And there's nothing to pay
Honey, hold out your finger
It's only our way
