Words and music by Jimmy Kennedy and Nat Simon.

CHORUS: Poor whip-poor-will, we're both up a tree.
Move over, move over and make room for me.
Poor whip-poor-will, how blue can we be?
Move over, move over and make room for me.

1. Under the moonlight, out on the hill,
I hear the call of a lone whip-poor-will.
He's got no lovebird to sit on his knee,
And I got no darlin', so lonesome are we. CHORUS

2. I had a sweetheart sweet as could be.
Last night he said he'd go walkin' with me.
True, he went walkin' but with someone new,
And that's why I'm lonesome and feelin' like you. CHORUS
