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 maybe 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 maybe wrong to this song
We're askin' how high high high high is the moon

Bu di di bi bu bi dibi

Though the words maybe wrong to that song
We're askin' how high high high high is the moon
