Refresh, because I was in my favorite second-hand book store, flopping around through the music, and found a sheet-music publication of this, copyright 1953, words and music credited to Meredith Willson, as sung by the Mariners on Columbia Records (featured on all Arthur Godfrey Programs -- oh my!) Price 40 cents. So I had to have it. Publisher was Plymouth Music Co, 1270 Sixth Ave., New York, NY. It goes...

I SEE THE MOON
(Meredith Willson)

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
Down thru the leaves of the old oak tree,
Please let the light that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.
    Over the mountain, over the sea
    Back where my heart is longing to be
    Please let the light that shines on me
    Shine on the one I love

I hear the lark, the lark hears me
Singing a song with a memory
Please let the lark that sings to me
Sing to the one I love
    Over the mountain, over the sea,
    Back where my heart is longing to be
    Please let the lark that sings to me
    Sing to the one I love.

I kiss the rose and the rose kisses me,
Fragrant as only a rose can be
Please take the kiss that comforts me
Back to the one I love
    Over the mountain, over the sea
    Back where my heart is longing to be
    Please take the kiss that comforts me
    Back to the one I love
