Moon River

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I’m crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you’re going I’m going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There’s such a lot of world to see.
We’re after the same rainbow’s end–
waiting ’round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

– OST Breakfast at Tiffanys

    Same here.. 🙂

  3. Well, it is a beautiful song by Henry Mancini.

    The song was written in a nostalgic mood. Henry used to live beside a river in his childhood. He used to collect Huckleberries(a kind of edible shrub) with his cousin. Hence, the reference to Huckleberry friend. This song tells about Henry’s child hood.

    He wants to find out the end of the rainbow. He believes that the moon river also goes until the end of of the rainbow. So, he and his cousin are moving along with the river to reach their common destination. Along the way they get to see the beautiful world. There wonder how much is yet to be explored. Sometimes he becomes heartbroken because the river he ‘s not reached the destination. But, his belief, that the river will go to the end of the rainbow, keeps motivating him to move on. So, he calls the moon river a heart broker and a dream maker. They are waiting for the journey to come to an end.

    We can relate this song to life as well. I’ve already written much so I’ll not get into it.

    Another theory is that he was referring to Huckleberry Finn running away from and drifting down Mississippi(?) river…
    I just live the line ‘I’m crossing you in style’..
    Thanks for sharing that with me 🙂
