I wished on the moon, for something I never knew Wished on the moon, for more than I ever knew A sweeter rose, a softer sky, an April day That would not dance away I begged of the stars to throw me a beam or two Wished on the stars and asked for a dream or two I looked for every loveliness, it all came true I wished on the moon .... for you ************** as rec by Bille Holiday w Tony Scott & his Orch Feb 14th 1955 New York Every night was long and gloomy, Shadows gathered in the air. No-one ever listened to me, No-one wondered did I care. None in all the world to love me, None to count the stars that hung, Then the moon came out above me, And I saw that it was young. I wished on the moon For something I never knew; Wished on the moon For more than I ever knew; A sweeter rose, a softer sky, an April day That would not dance away. I begged of a star To throw me a beam or two; Wished on a star And asked for a dream or two; I looked for every loveliness, it all came true; I wished on the moon for you. I wished on the moon For something I never knew; Wished on the moon For more than I ever knew; A sweeter rose, a softer sky, an April day That would not dance away. I begged of a star To throw me a beam or two; Wished on a star And asked for a dream or two; I looked for every loveliness, it all came true; I wished on the moon for you.
