Fooled by the Moon

< instrumental opening > 
Fooled by the moon,
hurt by the stars,
skies full of blue,
helped you deceive me . . .
Stardust fell from out of the sky,
and, somehow, I couldn't see,
that my true love was passin' by,
why did I have to be . . .
Fooled by the moon,
hurt by the stars,
I love you too,
please do believe me . . .
You had me in heaven,
an' you brought me to earth too soon,
hurt by the stars,
and fooled by the moon . . .
< instrumental ending > 

           Music by Saul Chaplin
