BLUE MOON (LIVE VERSION)
Ella Fitzgerald


Thank you, I thank you ladies & Gentlemen,

thank you so much.

Thank you and we'd like to do one of the songs, the number one hit, on the hit parade*.

We'd like to give you our versions of it.

Anyway we hope you like it.


Woo o o o o o o...........woo!

Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Moon

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue, Blue Moon

You know 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 ever hold

I heard somebody whisper please adore me

And when I looked to the Moon it turned to gold gold gold 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 ple......ase adore me

And when I looked the Moon had turned to gold gold gold gold


Blue moon

Now I'm no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own

Without a love of my own

Without a love of my own


Now it's a pity, but they asked us to sing

this request, and so we tried our best

to prove that we were not,

that we are not gone a pray

to sing a number one hit on the hit parade.

They say: 'If you can't beat them,join them',

and so we did, and so we did

But it's a pity to take pretty, pretty tune like a blueblueblueblue moon

and mass up such a pretty tune, like this

blueblueblueblueblueblueblueblue moon.


* This refers to the song performed by the Marcels and reached the # 1 on the hit parade in 1961.


ELLA FITZGERALD

Ella Jane Fitzgerald (April 25, 1917 – June 15, 1996) was an American jazz vocalist with a vocal range spanning three octaves (D♭3 to D♭6).
