D         Cdim   Em7      A7    DM7  Fdim       Em7   A7
Moonlight     becomes you,   it goes with your hair;

A7+5  F#m7     Bm7-5    Em7        A7     D     Bm7   A-9    A7
You  certainly know the right thing    to wear.


D        Cdim    Em7      A7    DM7      Fdim      Em7   A7
Moonlight     becomes you,   I'm thrilled at the sight,

A7+5F#m7         Bm7-5    Em7      A7      D     G    D   D+5
And   I could get so ro - man - tic     tonight.


Bridge:

(D+5) G    G/F#    Em        C       C/B
You're all dressed up to go dreaming 

     D7   D+5         G    G/F#
Now don't tell me I'm wrong.
 
    Em     Gdim        Bm        Bm7/E
And what a night to go dreaming;

Bm7-5     E7    Em7    A7
Mind if I tag along?


A7+5  D     Cdim   Em7     A7    DM7  Fdim   Em7   A7
If    I say      I love you,   I want you to know,

A7+5 F#m7       Bm7-5         Em7      A7        F#     F#7  Cdim   B7
It's not just because there's moonlight,    al - though


First Time:

 E7         Em7   A7   D    Bm    Em7    A-9
Moonlight becomes you so.


Last Time:

 E7         Em7   A7   D   Bm7  Gdim  D - D alt
Moonlight becomes you so.
