The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see, For the moon refused to shine. Couple sitting underneath a willow tree, For love they did pine. Little maid was kind-a 'fraid of darkness, so She said, "I guess I'll go." Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky, And told the moon his little tale of woe.
