The song “Moonlight Serenade” by Frank Sinatra was originally composed by Glenn Miller in 1935.  It was a very large part of the big band era which consisted of a music group of around 10 musicians playing instruments such as trumpets and saxophones. The song actually evolved from on of Miller’s previous songs titled, “Now I Lay Me Down to Weep”. It is featured on Sinatra’s 1996 album Moonlight Sinatra. An immense amount of exposure was created when Sinatra released his version of this beautiful song.

 

Lyrics

I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing a Moonlight Serenade

The stars are aglow and tonight how their light sets me dreaming
My love, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you and I sing you a moonlight serenade

Let us stray till break of day in love’s valley of dreams
Just you and I, a summer sky, a heavenly breeze kissin’ the trees

So don’t let me wait, come to me tenderly in the June night
I stand at your gate and I sing you a song in the moonlight
A love song, my darling, a moonlight serenade
