from The Ballad of Baby Doe
Music by Douglas Moore
Words by John Latouche


Gold is a fine thing / For those who admire it.
Gold is like the sun, / But I am a child
Of the moon, and silver / Is the metal of the moon.
Secret-smiler, wrapped in wonder, / Floating in her cloudy magic,
'Tis the moon that mints her silver / In the deeps of darkened earth.
All that's glowing, cool and tender / Has the feel of silver in it--
Silver is an infant's laughter, / Silver on the sage's brow,
Silver on a moonlit river / Echoes the silver orb above.
I am a child of the moon / And always
Will adore her element, / Dreaming as I watch it gleam,
I am mining heavenly ore./ Gold is the sun,
But silver, silver lies hidden in the core of dreams.
