A Sentimental Date with Perry Como
Carolina Moon
The moon was shining bright in Carolina 
the night we said goodbye so tenderly 
and now that I'm away from Carolina 
won't somebody tell the moon for me: 
Oh, Carolina Moon keep shining 
shining on the one who waits for me 
Carolina Moon, I'm pining,
pining for the place I long to be 
How I'm hopin' tonight you'll go 
go to the right window 
scatter your light 
say I'm all right please do!
Tell her that I'm blue an' lonely 
dreamy Carolina Moon! 
< instrumental break >
Tell her that I'm blue an' lonely 
dreamy Carolina Moon!
