Manchester City’s Blue Moon – Where Did It All begin?

Blue moon,

You saw me standing alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own.

Blue moon

And then there suddenly appeared before me

The only one my arms will hold

I heard somebody whisper please adore me

And when I looked, the moon had turned to gold.

Blue moon

Now I’m no longer alone

Without a dream in my heart

Without a love of my own.
