When tempting eyes across the road
 Said to me I'd love to be with you
 I'm not tempted for a moment 
 I just think about my woman 
 The baby calls me on the phone 
 Telling me I need to hurrily home
 Well the hurrying is easy
 Because she's waiting up
 With all the love I need

 I prefer the moonlight 
 The one right little lady by my side
 That's what I like
 I prefer a late drive down the turn park
 With the moonlight shining so brightly 
 Got her by my side
 That's what I'd like
 I prefer the moonlight 

 I prefer playing quiet song
 She's a mother love her daughter 
 Moonlight dances on the water 
 The moon is full and so am I
 I look at her and feel like I could cry
 But my tears contain no sorrow 
 Because I know
 She'll wake up by my side tomorrow 

 Morning, noon and night 
 When the feeling comes so right 
 Somewhere in some sky
 Where the moon is surely shining bright
