IGWRT's - Music with Marian "Come a Little Closer"


Come a Little Closer

A Van Gogh Moon
shines bright tonight
n' I'll collect my kisses
beneath this beacon bright.

Come a little closer, I aim to please
n' toil the whole night long -
if that's what it takes.
Thank the Lord for our ol' song

that I'll sing low, nuzzle your ear
in hopes to make you swoon.
Prove we're still in love
beneath this harvest moon.

for Imaginary Garden with Real Toads - Music with Marian - "Harvest Moon"  Love - I can't think anything more worthy than love to "toil the whole night long".

I don't know who's Marian but, I remember well the 1930 tune "Cuddle up a little closer to me, dearie mine..." and you've spun me about with a romantic sieve! ALWAYS a privilege! Faithfully Debbie
