  • Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
    With the stars up above in your eyes
    A fantabulous night to make romance
    'Neath the cover of October skies
    And all the leaves on the trees are falling
    To the sound of the breezes that blow
    And I'm trying to please to the calling
    Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
    And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
    And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

    Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
    Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

    Well, I want to make love to you tonight
    I can't wait 'til the morning has come
    And I know now the time is just right
    And straight into my arms you will run
    And when you come my heart will be waiting
    To make sure that you're never alone
    There and then, all my dreams will come true, dear
    There and then, I will make you my own
    And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
    And I know how much you want me, that you can't hide

    Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
    Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

    Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
    With the stars up above in your eyes
    A fantabulous night to make romance
    'Neath the cover of October skies
    And all the leaves on the trees are falling
    To the sound of the breezes that blow
    And I'm trying to please to the calling
    Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
    And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
    And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

    Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love
    Can I just make some more romance with you, my love

    One more moondance with you, in the moonlight
    On a magic night
    La, la, la, la, la in the moonlight
    On a magic night
    Can't I just have one more moondance with you my love Writer/s: Van Morrison

  • Katie from IowaThis was the song we danced to at our wedding for our ‘first dance’ together as a married couple 25 years ago. It has now become such a part of our story…my username for many platforms, and a great reminder of our love together.
  • Jerry from Niles, MiOnly song I know of that has the word "fantabulous" in it. A classic.
  • Mary from Phoenix, AzKelli, that's a great idea! My fiance' and I were trying to think of a first dance song for our wedding...and it happens to be in October!
  • Eb from Conch Republic, Mid-ter., FlThis song is incredible. How can you pick just one thing about it?
  • Jeff from Casa Grande, Azwhy is there no place for the best song on this album? BRAND NEW DAY !!!!???
  • Mchael from Winston-salem, NcThe entire album is a classic
  • Esther from Toronto, OnI love this song :)
    Our chamberstrings is playing this song. :D
  • Renee from Bloomington, MnLove Van Morrison's music. It is some of the most beautiful stuff ever composed in my opinion.
  • Cole from Milton , WaReally, what makes this song and Van Morrison so great is the off beat tempo and note holding that he is best known for. His voice stands out in a sea of sameness...
    Debra, Puyallup, Wa.
  • Lalah from Wasilla, AkDon't care much for saxaphone. What I remember most about this song is the flute. Fantabulous.
  • Rob from Vancouver, CanadaBad Moon Rising, Blue Moon a couple of the other
    great tunes in American Werewolf in London. Funniest horror flick, or scariest comedy.
  • Kelli from Cedar Rapids, IaI'm using this song as the first dance in my wedding.
  • Scott from Columbus, OhNaturally interpreted as the pure fascination of love , new and old... but It's hard to distinguish which lyrocs from Van M. are done out of physical live or spiritual love.....it's beyond me which he was writing about at this time...but it's work of a genius nonetheless.
    One of the most profound and prolific writers of our(my) time.
  • John from Edinburgh, ScotlandUsed in 'American Werewolf in London' - Think about it!
  • Tressa from Eaton Rapids, MiGreat song!! Van Morrison is a great artist!
