Video – “How High The Moon”



This is my cover of « How High The Moon », a jazz standard with lyrics by Nancy Hamilton and music by Morgan Lewis. It was first featured in the 1940 Broadway revue Two for the Show, where it was sung by Alfred Drake and Frances Comstock. The song has become a gypsy jazz standard and has been recorded by several singers (eg . Ella Fitzgerald) and musicians of the genre. I think my version turned out as a jazzy pow-wow … I used a karaoke backing track.

LYRICS :
Somewhere there’s music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there’s heaven
How high the moon
There is no moon above
When love is far away too
Till it comes true
That you love me as I love you

Somewhere there’s music
It’s where you are
Somewhere there’s heaven
How near, how far
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

How high the moon
Is the name of this song
How high the moon
Though the words may be wrong
We’re singin’ it because you ask for it
So we’re swingin’ it just for you

How high the moon
Does it touch the stars
How high the moon
Does it reach out to Mars
Though the words may be wrong to this song
We’re askin’ how high high high high high is the moon

ONOMATOPOEIA

Though the words may be wrong to this song
We hope to make high high high high as the moon
