Moon River

Dedicated to all dreamers who can't sleep. And God knows, we have plenty of those around lately. Lost loves. New loves. Feverish little ones. Hyperactive ex-teachers who found out too late they are totally addicted to teaching the Queen's English to A-level students.

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker,
You heart breaker.

Wherever you're going,
I'm going 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,
Waiting 'round the bend.
M huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

(music by Henry Mancini, lyrics by John Mercer, performed by Frank Sinatra)
