Moonlighting intro music

Here is Moonlighting’s theme song from seasons 1 to 3, which earned singer/songwriter Al Jarreau a Grammy nomination.


Some walk by night
Some fly by day
Nothing could change you
Set and sure of the way.

There is the sun and moon,
They sing their own sweet tune,
Watch them when dawn is due,
Sharing one space.

We’ll walk by night,
We’ll fly by day,
Moonlighting strangers
Who just met on the way
