"Moon River (Extended)" as written by Lamont Herbert Dozier, Brian Holland and Eddie Holland....
Moon river
Wider than a mile
I'll be crossing you in style
Someday

Oh, dream maker
You heartbreaker
Wherever you're going
I'm going your way

Two drifters
Off to see the world
I'm not so sure the world
Deserves us

We're after
The same rainbow's end
How come it's just around the bend ?
It's always just around the bend ?

Moon river
Wider than a mile
I'll be crossing you in style
Someday

Oh, dream maker
You heartbreaker
Wherever you're going
I'm going your way

Two drifters
Off to see the world
I'm not so sure the world
Deserves us

We're after
The same rainbow's end
It's just around the bend
It's just around the bend
It's just around the bend
It's just around the bend

Oh!

    General CommentAny of you wonder where Morrissey get's his sound clips from? I've always been wondering that. He usually has someone's voice in the background. It's sounds like it could be some TV show or movie, or maybe it's a voice actor. I'm dying to know. It this song its that mysterious lady crying. We have no clue what her background or what the story is, and in the end, she says "what you gonna do?" In the end...What is that about. His voices in the background are similar to the background voices in Pink Floyd's Dark Sid of the Moon.

    to wake up in the middle of the night and hear this song is a strange experience, you feel like you're in the mirror in Donny Darko...

    General CommentThe lady crying is Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany's during the scene where she breaks down.
