Moon

river wider, than a mile I'm
crossing you in style some day Oh
dream, maker you, heart breaker Wherever
you're goin' I'm, goin' your way Two

drifters off, to see the world There's
such a lot of world to see We're
after the same rainbow's end waitin', 'round the bend My
huckleberry friend moon, river and, me (Moon

river wider, than a mile) (I'm
crossin' you in style some day) Oh
dream, maker you, heart breaker Wherever
you're goin' I'm, goin' your way Two

drifters off, to see the world There's
such a lot of world to see We're
after that same rainbow's end waitin', 'round the bend My
huckleberry friend moon, river and, me (Moon

river moon, river)

    I was excited to see Dozier-Holland as songwriters--those great Motown hitmakers of the 60's, but every other sight list Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini as writer/musician. maybe someone could say why Dozier/Holland listed as songwriters here?

    Two drifters are a couple that just got married and ready to pursue their dreams. Moon river is america, the free market, and the american dream. And its a dream maker and a heart breaker at the same time. The couple is just starting and very optimistic about our country.

    This was a song written for a person who could not sing well, had a limited range (Audrey Hepburn). So it's meant to be sung by an innocent non-singer, and Leonard Bernstein said that more professional singers who covered the song, never got it. (Because they did sing it well, too much so. You have to sing it imperfectly to get the vulnerable feel.)

    It has the same effect on me, even though I don't understand it. I don't think its just about a river.
