Lunar/Moon and Dog Songs

Blue Moon

Songwriters: Lorenz Hart / Richard Rodgers
Blue moon you saw me standing alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own
Blue moon, you knew 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, the moon had turned to gold!
Blue moon!
Now I’m no longer alone
Without a dream in my heart
Without a love of my own

Bad Moon Rising

Creedence Clearwater Revival, Songwriters: John C. Fogerty

I see a bad moon a-rising
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today

Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hear hurricanes a-blowing
I know the end is coming soon
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin

Don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise

I hope you got your things together
I hope you are quit prepared to die
Look’s like we’re in for nasty weather
One eye is taken for an eye

Oh don’t go ’round tonight
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
There’s a bad moon on the rise

Blue Moon of Kentucky

Songwriters: Bennie Benjamin / George David Weiss

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

It was on a moonlight night
The stars were shining bright
And they whispered from on high
Your love has said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and proved untrue
Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and left me blue

It is on a moonlight night
The stars shining bright
They whispered from high
Your love has said good-bye

Blue moon of Kentucky keep on shining
Shine on the one that’s gone and said good-bye

 

Fly Me to the Moon

Songwriters: Bart Howard

 

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like On Jupiter & Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling, kiss me
Fill my life with song
And let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for, All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you
Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like On Jupiter & Mars
In other words, hold my hand
In other words, darling, kiss me

Fill my life with song
Let me sing for ever more
You are all I long for, All I worship and adore

In other words, please be true
In other words, in other words
In other words, in other words
In other words
I love you

 

Moonglow

Songwriters: Eddie Delange / Irving Mills / W Hudson

It must have been moonglow

Way up in the blue

It must have been moonglow

That led me straight to you

I still hear you sayin’

“Dear one, hold me fast”

And I started prayin’

“Oh Lord, please let this last”

 

We seemed to float right through the air

Heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere

 

And now when there’s moonglow, way up in the blue

I’ll always remember, that moonglow gave me you

 

We seemed to float right through the air

Oh, those heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere

And now when there’s moonglow, way up in the blue

I’ll always remember, that moonglow gave me you

That moonglow gave me you

That moonglow gave me you

 

Moon! Indigo (mood)

Writer(s): Barney Bigard, Albany Bigard, Irving Mills, Duke Ellington

 

You ain’t been blue; no, no, no.

You ain’t been blue,

Till you’ve had that MOON indigo.

That feelin’ goes stealin’ down to my shoes

While I sit and sigh, “Go ‘long blues”.

 

Always get that MOON indigo,

Since my baby said goodbye.

In the evenin’ when lights are low,

I’m so lonesome I could cry.

 

‘Cause there’s nobody who cares about me,

I’m just a soul who’s

Bluer than blue can be.

When I get that MOON indigo,

I could lay me down and die.

 

Paper Moon

Say, it’s only a paper moon
Sailing over a cardboard sea
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Yes, it’s only a canvas sky
Hanging over a muslin tree
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Without your love
It’s a honky tonk parade
Without your love
It’s a melody played in a penny arcade

It’s a Barnum and Bailey world
Just as phony as it can be
But it wouldn’t be make-believe
If you believed in me

Hound Dog

Songwriters: Jerry Leiber / Mike Stoller

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Yeah they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

Break

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Yeah they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

(break)

Well they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Ya know they said you was high-classed
Well, that was just a lie
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
You ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog   Cryin’ all the time
Well, you ain’t never caught a rabbit and you ain’t no friend of mine

 

How much is that doggie in the window?

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I must take a trip to California
And leave my poor sweetheart alone
If he has a dog, he won’t be lonesome
And the doggie will have a good home

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

I read in the papers there are robbers
With flashlights that shine in the dark
My love needs a doggie to protect him
And scare them away with one bark

(modulate)

I don’t want a bunny or a kitty
I don’t want a parrot that talks
I don’t want a bowl of little fishies
He can’t take a goldfish for a walk

How much is that doggie in the window?
The one with the waggly tail
How much is that doggie in the window?
I do hope that doggie’s for sale

 

Martha My Dear

Songwriters:Paul McCartney  (John Lennon)

Written about Paul’s dog

Martha, my dear

Though I spend my days in conversation, please

Remember me
Martha, my love
Don’t forget me
Martha, my dear

Hold your head up, you silly girl
Look what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl

Take a good look around you
Take a good look you’re bound to see
That you and me were meant to be
With each other
Silly girl

{break}

Hold your head up, you silly girl
See what you’ve done
When you find yourself in the thick of it
Help yourself to a bit of what is all around you
Silly girl

Martha, my dear
You have always been my inspiration
Please, be good to me
Martha, my love
Don’t forget me
Martha, my dear.

 

Our Hour (The Puppy Love Song)   Spike Jones

The moon was like gold
As they strolled down the lane
Each star in the sky
Heard him sigh this refrain
This is our hour for love
Our hour to dream
Said the curly Pekingese
To his girlie Pekingese
Let’s be gay we say woofwoof

This is our hour for love
Our hour to scheme
Said the little puppy-he
To the little puppy-she
Let us cling and sing woofwoof

I can picture you and me forever
Chasing p****cats together

This is our hour for love,
Our hour to dream
We will raise a family
Maybe twenty-two or three
They’ll be our, our, our

Puppy Love

By Paul Anka

And they called it puppy love
Oh, I guess they’ll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so

And they called it puppy love
Just because we’re in our teens
Tell them all, please tell them it isn’t fair
To take away my only dream

I cry each night my tears for you
My tears are all in vain
I’ll hope and I’ll pray that maybe someday
You’ll be back in my arms once again

Someone, help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above
How can I, oh how can I tell them
This is not a puppy love

Someone, help me, help me, help me please
Is the answer up above
How can I, oh how can I tell them
This is not a puppy love, not a puppy love
