“Moon River” often performed by Andy Williams

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

One response to ““Moon River” often performed by Andy Williams

  1. Andy Williams was born in Wall Lake, Iowa, USA on 3 December 1927, and died in Branson, Missouri, USA on 25 September 2012.
    “Moon River” was composed by Johnny Mercer (lyrics) and Henry Mancini (music) in 1961 for the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s, winning them the Academy Award for Best Original Song.
    Williams was asked to sing it at the 1962 Oscar Awards, and it became his theme song. He never released it as a single, so it was never actually a chart hit for him.
