"Lindy" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN


[1st verse:]
Big pale moon
Was shining down on Tennessee
Birds in tune
Sang love's sweet melody
Homesick coon
Was sighing tenderly
And pretty soon
I listened to his plea

Lindy, Lindy, how much longer must I wait?
The "Good Book" says that man must take unto himself a mate
You need somebody who
Will cuddle up close to you
Next winter, Lindy
When the weather is windy
You know that birds and bees and chickens raise a family
And what was meant for them was meant for Lindy and me

[2nd verse:]
Big pale moon
Still shining down on Tennessee
Birds in tune
Hum that same melody
Will come eventually
And that same coon
Is urging hopefully
