Queenie  (1909) 
by Irving Berlin
Verse 1

The moon above
Am shining, love
I'm out here waiting.
Don't be so shy,
I can't see why,
You're hesitating.
Come out and meet me, lady,
You are my dark-eyed baby.
Come, love, don't be afraidy,
My little nohey, do:
Here while the stars are peeping
And all the world am sleeping,
My promise I'll be keeping, love, to you.

Chorus

Queenie, my own,
I'll build a nice little home
Where we can live all alone
and from you I'll never roam.
Say you'll be mine,
Oh! honey, please don't decline,
And all the stars will then shine
For you and me.

Verse 2

Impatiently
I wait for thee
Here in the moonlight.
Don't be afraid,
My dusky maid,
This is a spoonlight.
Now, don't be hesitating,
The birds above are mating,
My love, I'll be relating
To you, my dusky queen,
Think, dear, of what you're missing,
Loving and lots of kissing,
Come out, my love, and listen to my plea:

Chorus

Queenie, my own,
I'll build a nice little home
Where we can live all alone
and from you I'll never roam.
Say you'll be mine,
Oh! honey, please don't decline,
And all the stars will then shine
For you and me.
