Ella FitzgeraldBlue Moon

Once upon a time Before I took up smiling I hated the moonlight! Shadows of the night That poets find beguiling Seemed flat as the moonlight With no one to stay up for I went to sleep at ten Life was a bitter cup For the saddest of all men Once upon a time My heart was just an organ My life had no mission Now that I have you To be as rich as Morgan Is my one ambition Once I awoke at seven Hating the morning light Now I awake in Heaven And all the world's all right Blue moon you saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue moon You knew just what I was there for You heard me saying a pray'r for Someone I really could care for And then there suddenly appeared before me The only one my arms will ever hold I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me" And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold! Blue moon! Now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue moon you saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own Blue moon You knew just what I was there for You heard me saying a prayer for Someone I really could care for And then there suddenly appeared before me The only one my arms will ever hold I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me" And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold! Blue moon! Now I'm no longer alone Without a dream in my heart
