"Blue Moon" as written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart....
Blue moon you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew just what I was there for
You heard me saying a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will hold
I heard somebody whisper "Please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!

Blue moon!
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

And then there suddenly appeared before me
The only one my arms will ever hold
I heard somebody whisper "please adore me"
And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!

Blue moon!
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Blue moon!
Now I'm no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

    General CommentThe lyrics are presumed to refer to an English idiomatic expression: a blue moon is either the second full moon in a month or the third one when four full moons occur in one season of the year, which is a somewhat rare occurrence. If something happens "once in a blue moon" it happens almost never. The narrator of the song is relating a stroke of luck so unlikely that it must have taken place under a blue moon.

    General CommentJust to me a cool cool song in the C Am Dm G7 mode of the fifties. But also thot blue moon had something to do with volcanic ash in the 1900's obscurring the moon and making it blue-- making that a very very rare ocurrence. SOng is cool when redone in the sixites mode. Jazz interp is cool too for a different rendition.
