Ella Fitzgerald - Moonlight Serenade Lyrics

I stand at your gate
And the song that I sing is of moonlight
I stand and I wait
For the touch of your hand in the June night
The roses are sighing
A moonlight serenade

The stars are aglow
And tonight how their light sets me dreaming
My love, do you know
That your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
I bring you, and sing you
A moonlight serenade

Let us stray, till break of day
In love's valley of dreams
Just you and I, a summer sky
A heavenly breeze kissing the trees

So don't let me wait
Come to me tenderly in the June night
I stand at your gate
And I sing you a song in the moonlight
A love song, my darling
A moonlight serenade

Ella Fitzgerald Moonlight Serenade Comments
  1. Junko Enoshima

    I wish someone sang to me when I was a kid, these songs are beautiful and it’s too bad I’m already 13. I hate these modern songs with no emotion or beauty everything nowadays are songs glorifying physical love and money not true love from the heart like this and the modern fashion is even worse, just scraps of cloth with a logo and no real detail and emotion put into it but people my age still find these things more attractive than true art like this. I was born in a horrible generation of vsco girls and chads

  2. Leonardo Yoichi Tsukino

    Incredible Voice!!!!

  3. CuyahogaWing

    Perfect song. Perfect voice. Love you, Ella. A true lady.

  4. Lisa Peterson

    Ohh, so lovely! ❤

  5. Ted Forbes

    So soothing! These songs of the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s helps me to relax and fall asleep naturally! So much beauty!

  6. Ed Triana

    I stand at your gate and the song that I sing is of moonlight
    I stand and I wait for the touch of your hand in the June night
    The roses are sighing a moonlight serenade
    The stars are aglow and tonight how your lips set me dreaming
    My Kiki, do you know that your eyes are like stars brightly beaming?
    I kiss you and sing you a moonlight serenade
    My dear, you and I, fell in love with such sweetness
    And I, hold you near, as we dance to this song dear
    Moonlight serenade

    Kiriaki Kanelli

    Ed Triana my love, you are a serenade yourself in my life, just you and I, are summer sky, I adore you my love, my darling,

    Frank Sinatra's version is better.

  18. Nam Pham

    Marvelous Mrs. Maisel lead me here. The great thing about period piece shows/movies is that it occasionally introduces me to great music.


    Same. I've known this tune for all my life, but only the instrumental. Didn't realize it had lyrics until I saw Mrs. Maisel.

  55. Ernie Carrillo

    How does someone push the unlike button on this??

  56. nomnom yam

    Looking at the moon right now while listening to this. GODDAMN IT, ELLA IS LITERALLY THE VOICE OF MOON GODDESS. So fucking silky, elegant, and soulful. ::pure eargasm::

  57. Lesley Bunce

    Played this today at my fathers funeral . Beautiful Ella

  58. jim partridge

    ella 'singing is sublime however I thought the musical arrangement was intrusive and and not restrained enough

  59. Pepper Williams

    This collection of Ella's are very very very good!!!

  60. Trevor Morris

    Not a tune I liked much - until I heard this version! So superb.

  66. Teresa Diaz

    gets me everytime

  67. Damaso Grassi

    voce swing emozione , stupenda grazie!!!

  68. Antonio R.


  69. Ken Sears

    To echo a comment further down, this magnificent melody is not actually a singer-friendly tune. The phrasing is "instrumental", not "vocal". Which is why Fitzgerald's success in conquering it, and making it a real "song" and all her own, is just superb.

    Ken Sears

    It's the kind of thing that can be done only with a blend of supreme self-assurance and technical mastery.

    Igor Rocha Ribeiro

    I dont have that technical background but for me you look to be right

  70. Portia

    Chills, no matter the rendition of this song. But hers is lovely <3

  71. Andre Newcomb

    Stevie might have been challenged . . . and all of his life . . . yet he revealed himself to be yet another nasty man.  And very publicly.

  72. rene knipe

    A voice like silk !!! Awesome! xxx

    M Lo


  73. Atlas & Axis Alphabiotics®

    Forever C.J.V.L!

  74. A Person

    It doesn't get better than this.

  75. Miriam María Flores Corrales

    Qué bella música, evoca mi infancia, ver a mi padre con la oreja pegada a la radio.

  76. panagiotis ioannidis

    lovely voice

  77. Beatrice Priyadarshini

    love her voice .....the way she sings. .wow

  78. Keith Ninesling

    She was the greatest.  All hail on what would have been her 99th birthday...

  79. Edgard Rojas

    Increiblemente hermosa

  80. vinisalo

    estou muito feliz de encontrar essa música! perfeita♡

  81. Maria Angelica Nieto Rios

    Un poema hecho canción e interpretado magistralmente por Ella que mas se le puede pedir a la vida. Sin olvidarnos de Gleen Miller su compositor.

  82. Bluejeans0701

    The great combination of Glenn Miller's music and Ella's beautiful voice is really amazing. I was too ignorant of Ella before but she is a must for jazz fans.

  83. Duke Jenkins


  84. Rebecca Phelps

    Stunning. I normally listen to pop but lady gaga and Tony Bennetts cheek to cheek got me trawling the Internet for music like this. This is beautiful.

  85. Maciej Polak

    Ach ta cudowna Ella!

  86. Miss Dee

    Oh my this might be one of my favorite Ella vocal performances. So stunning.

  87. Pina Colada

    That voice and that melody...theres no sorrow that cant be soothed

  88. Stefano Clemente


  89. ron a.

    Two musical geniuses (Fitzgerald and Miller) join together to create a masterpiece.

    James Munafo,Sr.

    Thanks for the memory Ron

    A'Doris A

    Yes, a perfect match I must say.  I enjoy Ella to the accompaniment of Nelson Riddle as well. If you haven't heard An Early Autumn with Fitzgerald/Riddle 1964 version, I highly recommend it.

  90. Mickey Oberman

    The most beautiful song ever written
    Miss Fitzgerald's is the best vocal version I have heard.

    Thank you very much.
    Mickey Oberman

    Christian Aldana

    Mickey Oberman Sinatra?

  91. Art Clark

    I'm glad I'm just old enough to have heard my parents listening to this kind of music.  I can appreciate it now in a way I couldn't at the time. It's debatable whether the top female performers today equal Ella's talent.  But most completely lack class and their fan base have no idea that a woman should be able to sing without rubbing her crotch.

    Thanks for helping keep this music alive!

  92. luis felipe ossa londoño

    Bella melodia de todos los tiempos.

  93. Allie Grant

    I love this kind of music..but it makes me said cause i never found my love.

    A'Doris A

    carmel McQueen.  You need a refresher course in Christianity 101. I say that laughingly because I know who you are now!  You are an evil spirit attacking this woman.  But I call you out and cast you out, you filthy demon. Go back to the pits of hell where you came from.  In the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS, GO BACK TO YOUR PIT OF DISPAIR AND HATE.  You can not stand against God's people.  You are DEFEATED in JESUS' name. Crawl on your belly and be ashamed and confounded for seeking hurt upon God's people.   You are defeated!!!

    A'Doris A

    Sweetie, carmel McQueen is a demon and not worth your time and energy. Resist the devil and he will flee.

    A'Doris A

    Thank you. As an evangelist, I recognized that too.  This what Satan does, goes to and fro, seeking whom he may devour.  I'm sorry that he picked on someone with an already broken spirit and I'm sorry he chose a platform dedicated to Ella to do it on.

    A'Doris A

    rogermwilcox  If that was an attempt at humor, you SUCK!!!  If you couldn't say something nice, why bother to say anything. You people are sick.

    St. Bimbus

    Allie Grant Not necessarily a bad thing. A lot of people will find the love of their life, then that person would leave them, or maybe even taken away. Losing the love of your life would be more devastating than never finding one in the first place. That's just my opinion at least.

    That being said, it must hurt living not knowing the "what if's", and I'm sorry to hear.

  94. Antonio Carlos Burgos

    Wanderful voice !!!

  95. Edward Marfiak

    A "Perfect" voice.

  96. Patrick Novak

    Mom this song reminds me of you! I miss you.... How fortunate you all were to grow with this music. But it was sorely needed given you all grew up in the Great Depression and WWII ...
