Oh Night!

Oh night, sweet night.
Please, don’t pass me by.
1

Oh stars, sweet stars.
Please, don’t-go-down tonight.


Stay high, keep shining.
Shine even in the light of day.


Don’t go, Don’t stop.
Just keep me hanging on!


Fireworks
far away
light the way
touch a star
and become
enchanted.


Little sister, sweet sister.
Let’s do a moonwalk, together.


Oh Moon, smooth Moon,
shining spinning soft and slender–
Let this sweet night last forever.


Please, don’t go
don’t-go-down
keep dancing
around and around!


Please, stay high
high on night
and keep shining
on and on and on!

This poem is set to the music from “Oh Love” song by Green Day.
1–This one line is directly taken from the song.
