Uhura seduces the Paradise City guards in the desert

"The Moon's A Window To Heaven" was a song which Uhura sang under the moons of Nimbus III as she performed a fan dance for the resident guards of Paradise City. Her dance seduced the entire lookout party and they were lured into a trap. After which, she laughingly told them, "Hello, boys. I always wanted to play to a captive audience!" (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)

Lyrics

The drums of misted hearts
Are carried on the air
I can hear my name
From out there somewhere

The moon's a window to heaven
For the eyes of lovers below
The moon's a window to heaven
It's there that I want to go

I will dance away
Beneath a starry dome
I will find a way
To fly to my home

The moon's a window to heaven
For the eyes of lovers below
The moon's a window to heaven
And it's there I someday will go

Silver light
Against an endless night
I feel the rapture
Captured in flight

The moon's a window to heaven
For the eyes of lovers below
The moon's a window to heaven
It's there that I want to go

The moon's a window to heaven
For the eyes of lovers below
The moon's a window to heaven

The song was performed and arranged by the group Hiroshima, with music by Jerry Goldsmith and lyrics by John Bettis. (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 2, p. 52))
The history of the song was discussed in further detail on StarTrek.com. [1]
