Sarah Brightman - Moon river

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!

music: Henry Mancini (1924-1994)
lyrics: Johnny Mercer (1909-1976)

From: La Luna: non-European version (2000)

Source of the lyrics: thanks to Chung Kan Li, who recognised this "hidden song"; it is not mentioned on the CD-cover nor in the CD-booklet.

This song is an excerpt of the song Moon River from the movie "Breakfast At Tiffany's" (Paramount, 1961), starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, directed by Blake Edwards, and written by George Axelrod, based on a novel by Truman Capote, with the original music written by Henry Mancini. In the movie it is sung by Audrey.
I have seen this movie several times and I like it very, very much -- it is a delightful, funny and good movie! Don't remember the song, though, but I do remember that Audrey sings in the movie.
Thanks to Chung Kan Li for info on this; see the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) for more on the movie, and Johnny Mercers Educational Archives for info on the lyricist of the song.
