Oh! How night descends
How light fades as the day ends
How the lights of stars speckle the sky
How the sun goes low as the moon goes high!
The crickets chirp their song
Persisting while the night is long
Searching for a mate to call
To be refused would be their fall
To the night I sing my own song
Of a day that has since gone
As I stare upon the starlight
And dance below the moonlight
Oh night, oh night!
How the stars speckle the sky
How the sun goes low as the moon goes high
Oh! How the poets lie!
