IF YOU STUB YOUR TOE ON THE MOON Jimmy Van Heusen (m) Johnny Burke (l) 1947 as rec by The Nat "King" Cole Trio 1940's also rec by- Bing Crosby & The Rhythmaires w Victor Young & his Orch '47 frank Sinatra w The Phil Moore Four '49 Tony Martin '49 Oh, there's nothin' to be ashamed of If you stub your toe on the moon. When a dreanm's at the top of the sky, Well, you just have to jump pretty high! But don't give up too soon If you stub your toe on the moon! Young Harry Haggets Loved making gadgets, "Life needs some new things!" Was his claim; "Hope one or two things might bring fame", This is the last time you'll hear his name! Nobody mentions Harry's inventions, But do you think that got him down? Here comes the end, When you've gadgets to mend, He's the best repair man in town! So there's nothin' to be ashamed of If you stub your toe on the moon. When you start out to climb through a cloud, Well it may get a laugh from the crowd, But don't give up too soon If you stub your toe on the moon! Sweet Sally Springer, She was a singer, Lived in a hall room Up one flight; Thought of a ballroom Big and bright, Where she would make her debut some night. Then, for her trouble, pop went the bubble; Say that is said But wait, don't weep! Now they admit Every night she's a hit When she sings her children to sleep! Wait folks, don't go 'way yet! Horace MacLowit, He was a poet, Worked in an attic day and night! Sort of fanatic, some would say, Much too profound in his obscure way. Tried hard to last out, Laughed at and tossed out, Horace the failure would not grieve! He writes the rhymes That are cheerful as chimes On the Christmas cards you receive! No there's nothin' to be ashamed of If you stub your toe on the moon. It may be a blow to your pride, You're a hero because, well you tried! So don't give up too soon If you stub your toe on the moon! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - April 2011)
