With Pied Pipers
From the movie, “Ship Ahoy”
From the CD Frank Sinatra In Hollywood (1940-1964) Disc 1, track 4

We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay,
We could hear the darkies singing, they seem to say,
You have stolen her heart, now don’t go ‘way,
As we sang love’s old sweet song on Moonlight Bay.
Voices hum through the Moonlight Bay
Banjos strum, tuning while the moonbeams play,
All along I know, next they find me, memories I dream remind me
Of the beach I left behind me down on Moonlight Bay.
We were sailing along on Moonlight Bay,
We could hear the darkies singing, they seem to say,
You have stolen her heart, now don’t go ‘way,
As we sang love’s old sweet song on Moonlight Bay
