Moonlight Cocktail Lyrics

Artist: Glenn Miller


Moonlight Cocktail
Glenn Miller & his Orchestra
Words by Kim Gannon
Music by Lucky Roberts

#1 from week of February 28, 1942 to week of May 2, 1942

Couple of jiggers of moonlight and add a star,
Pour in the blue of a June night and one guitar,
Mix in a couple of 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 'til dreams come true.
Add to the number of kisses, it's up to you.
Moonlight Cocktail - 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.

(Instrumental interlude)

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.

It is actually "as for the number of kisses, its up to you" not "add to the number of kisses, its up to you"

You are absolutely correct Rory.
How well I remember this song and especially the person I sang it to so often

I believe, the most romantic song ever written.

Is it "lovers hail the Moonlight Cocktail" or "Lover's ale, the Moonlight Cocktail" ?

Ale is no right stuff for dreamers unless they're drunkers.
