"Moon River" as written by Johnny Mercer and Henry Mancini....
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, ooh)

    General CommentHaven't seen Breakfast at Tiffany's. Like Andy Williams' version. Just going off the song lyrics beyond the literal: The river represents love and marriage. Love is a dreammaker and a heartbreaker. The songwriter hopes to cross into love with a particular special person (his huckleberry friend, someone he's known dearly). Two drifters off to see the world.
