Verse:
Once up - on a time, be - fore I took up smil - ing,  I hat - ed the moon - lite.
Shad - ows of the night, that po - ets find be - guil - ing,  Were flat as the noon - lite.
With no one to stay up for,  I went to sleep at ten.
Life was a bit - ter cup for the sad - dest of all men.
 
Chorus:
Blue Moon you saw me stand - ing a - lone,  With - out a dream in my heart,
With - out a love of my own.
Blue Moon you knew just what I was there for,  You heard me say - ing a pray'r for,
Some - one I real - ly could care for.
And then there sud - den - ly ap - peared be - fore me,  The on - ly one my arms will ev - er hold,
I heard some - bod - y whis - per "Please a - dore me",  And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold!
Blue Moon! Now I'm no long - er a - lone,  With - out a dream in my heart,
With - out a love of my own.
