"Moon Song" is a song written by Arthur Johnston. It was featured in Frank Sinatra's 1966 Reprise album Moonlight Sinatra. It was intentionally used in the film Hello, Everybody!.

Lyrics Edit

Once I tried to capture the rapture of the night,
Silly dreams I knew would disappear;
But it seems they left a souvenir.
One refrain eternally will haunt me... taunt me...

It came from nowhere the night that we met,
'Twas like a melodious plea -
Sweet moon song that wasn't meant for me.

Why is it always reminding me of
A love dream that never could be -
Sweet moon song that wasn't meant for me.

It came gliding into my heart,
Riding on a moonbeam from above.
Sorrow ended and the whole world blended
In a rhapsody of love.

Then I heard her singing to somebody else
What I thought was my melody -
Sweet moon song that wasn't meant for me.
