FOOLED BY THE MOON
(Saul Chaplin (m) Sammy Cahn (l) )
as recorded by Ted Weems & his Orchestra
(vocal - Perry Como)
August 6th 1936
Fooled by the moon, hurt by the stars,
Skies full of blue helped you deceive me.
Stardust fell from out of the sky,
And somehow I couldn't see
That my true love was passin' by;
Why did I have to be
Fooled by the moon, hurt by the stars?
I love you too, please do believe me!
You had me in heaven,
And you dropped me to earth too soon,
Hurt by the stars and fooled by the moon!
