In Honor of The Full Blue Moon (November 21, 2010)

IN HONOR OF THE FULL BLUE MOON, here are the lyrics to the song, "Blue Moon."
Lyrics by Lorenz Hart, Music by Richard Rogers

Blue Moon
Blue moon, 
you saw me standing alone 
without a dream in my heart
without a love on my own.
Blue moon,
you knew just what I was there for
you heard me saying a prayer for
somebody 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, 
the moon had turned to gold.
Blue moon,
now I'm lo longer alone
without a dream in my heart
without a love on my own.
