Story Behind the Song

The scenario is a guy wandering in the street at the start of the weekend, with nowhere to go. Seeing a doorway, he rings the bell and finds himself in a rather 'special' nightclub... Read into it what you will, but I see blue light, flickering shadows of

Lyrics

1. Friday night, nothin' goin' on, nowhere to go.
Somehow life seems to carry on, boy what a show!
Only clowns in the middle of the ring,
Nobody there to sing for me.
Then a sign and a door - what are you waiting for?
You could get carried away now you've found it, the Moonlight Cafe.

2. So I rang and I rang the bell, and waited there.
And I thought, Baby, what the hell? I didn't care.
What a circus! The clowns had left the ring,
The show could now begin for me.
Then a voice from the door said, What are you waitin' for?
Come and get carried away now you've found it, the Moonlight Cafe.

Refrain. Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonliy-ee-iy-ee-ight -
You could get carried away if you find it, the Moonlight Cafe.

3. There was music and there was laughter, and lots of girls.
Couldn't think what they all were after in such a world.
What a fanfare! The clowns filled up the ring,
The circus now could sing for me.
Then the voice of a girl said, Come into my world,
You can get carried away now you've found it, the Moonlight Cafe.

Refrain. Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonliy-ee-iy-ee-ight -
Why not get carried away now you've found it, the Moonlight Cafe.

4. So we danced and we sat in corners to watch the crowd.
But a man came along to warn us, That's not allowed.
You are clowns in the middle of the ring,
Now get up there and sing for me.
So we sang, just we two, while the lights all turned to blue,
People get carried away when they've found it, the Moonlight Cafe.

Refrain. Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonliy-ee-iy-ee-ight -
I just got carried away when I found her, in the Moonlight Cafe.

Coda. When I found her, in the Moonlight Cafe.
Moonlight, Moonlight, Moonlight... (Repeat to fade).
