Shirley Bassey – Moon River lyrics

Moon River

Artist: Andy Williams
(# 11 Billboard hit for Jerry Butler in 1961)
Words by Johnny Mercer and Music by Henry Mancini
from the movie "Breakfast At Tiffany's" starring Audrey Hepburn


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)
