Ella Fitzgerald - How High The Moon 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 singing it
Because you ask for it
So we're swinging it just for you

How high the moon
Does it touch the stars
How high the moon
Does it reach up to Mars
Though the words may be wrong
to this song
We're asking how high, high, high
high, high is the moon

  1. Adam Samuel

    John Witherpoon guest role on Fresh Prince when he was in the woods with Will and he sung part of this song so off key. Funny as hell. Lol

  2. SweatNinja

    Fresh prince?

  3. Rick Davenport

    Hell yeah!!! From the First note.

  4. Tristan H Music

    This is from the Live at Mister Kelly's album recorded in 1958, but not released until 2007.

  6. Admiral Hank Dawkins XIII

    I love the part specially when Ella goes:

    _bubi yuba dibi bobay deedee bobapay_
    _boyui duba didaa iiiiiii uh yaa iii yaaaa_
    _tteeeeeeeeee da du dey da yiba paraa bappa_

  12. Aaron

    Elon Musk whistled this song on a video titled “A conversation with Elon Musk about the Starship” by the channel named something like Everyday Astronaut. It’s about 60 seconds in the video.

    john

    Aaron who fucking cares

    Joseph Watts

    @john i do, since another comment referenced it and I didn't know where it came from.

    Benny Worm

    john you forgot to add “about me” at the end. Must try harder John!

    john

    @Benny Worm that's the kind of big brain insult you can only come up with by loving elon musk

  13. Brian Mahoney

    Joseph Watts

    @Eiad Alkhayat I watch the video all the way through and didn't hear it?

    Eiad Alkhayat

    @Joseph Watts the whistle just before the interview

    Joseph Watts

    @Eiad Alkhayat oh gosh, that is subtle. I don't know how you recognized that!

    Eiad Alkhayat

    Ist es vermessen, Al Jarreau und Roger Cicero in dieser Liga zu sehen? Diese beiden fielen mir beim Hören ein.... und keiner von ihnen ist mehr unter uns; Nachwuchs der Klasse nicht in Sicht oder nicht bekannt; vielleicht in der Jazz-Szene, die ich nicht kenne.

  92. Tracey Lloyd

    What Ella had that singers don't have today, other than those pipes, are phrasing and diction. Pop music now is full of mushmouths and mumble jumbles. WTF are they talking about? And when you take a breath in the middle of a sentence (phrase), you change the meaning of the song. It's like putting the emphasis on the wrong syllable. I hate it and even the "great" singers now do it. You need more than shouting to the back row and every run imaginable to be a great singer.
