Cottonwood trees dance in the moonlight
The field becomes a great ballroom
All groomed, they bloom and gloom
In the moonlight

Dancing the tango
Their branch arms sway and tease
Their shadows do the same
With the dark sky to seize

Under the filtered light
The trees dance silently
Under the filtered light
Their steps light as their might

They swiftly move graciously
Human eyes even as spies
Can only see if they believe

That the cottonwood trees
Are secretive creatures of the night
That the cottonwood trees
Can shake off any fright

If you feel the soil trembling in your knees
And your sight’s blinded by the full moon’s stare
Stay still, carefully
And maybe you’ll see them entwined
In the moonlight tango

Under the filtered light
They impress the stars that gleam
Under the filtered light
The cottonwood trees dance
Under the filtered light
Their secret’s in a spotlight

(paroles/words: Kim D.-R.
