Singalong! Dancing in the Moonlight by King Harvest

Many years ago a friend of mine made me a mix CD. When he asked what I wanted it to be, I helpfully replied, "songs that will make me happy!" He delivered, and the whole album was full of some delightful discoveries that really brightened my day. The peach on the top of the pile, however, was the final song of the album: the old hit by King Harvest, "Dancing in the Moonlight". What a joyful number! I remembered it from my days of listening to oldies radio, and to this day have a hard time listening to it without dancing, at least a bit.


DANCING IN THE MOONLIGHT
by King Harvest

We get it on most every night
when that moon is big and bright
its a supernatural delight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

everybody here is out of sight
they dont bark and they dont bite
they keep things loose they keep it tight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

we like our fun and we never fight
you cant dance and stay uptight
its a supernatural delight
everybody was dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

we get in on most every night
and when that moon is big and bright
its a supernatural delight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight
