Mr Moon

O Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down? Down on the hilltop, down in the glen,
Out in the clearin’ to play with little men? Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down?

O Mr. Moon, hurry up your stumps!
Don’t you hear Bullfrog callin’ to his wife
And old black Cricket a-wheezin’ at his fife?
Hurry up your stumps and get on your pumps!
Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down?

O Mr. Moon, hurry up along!
The reeds in the current are whisperin’ slow;
The river’s a-wimplin’ to and fro.
Hurry up along or you’ll miss the song!
Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down?

O Mr. Moon, we’re all here!
Honey-bug, Thistledrift, White-imp, Weird,
Wryface, Billiken, Quidnunc, Queered;
We’re all here and the coast is clear!
Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down?

O Mr. Moon, there’s not much time!
Hurry, if you’re comin’ you lazy old bones!
You can sleep tomorrow while the buzbuz drones;
There’s not much time till the church bells chime.
Moon, Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down ?

O Mr. Moon, when you comin’ down ?
Down where the Good Folk dance in a ring,
Down where the Little Folk sing, sing and sing.
Moon, Mr. Moon when you comin’ down ?
