Lyrics 

(Lyric Find)

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

Adds 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

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
