Old Devil Moon

Lyrics:Yip Harburg
Music:Burton Lane

The song was publishe 1946.

In Max Wilk’s book They’re Playing Our Song lyricist Yip Harburg
tells the story behind “Old Devil Moon.”
Friend and composer Harold Arlen came to Harburg’s house one night
and Yip played him the score that he’d written with Burton Lane
for Finnian’s Rainbow.
Arlen pointed out one song that he thought was weak.
Yip said, “So I had Burt play him a tune he’d been fooling around
with--it was to be ‘Old Devil Moon,’ though it had another lyric;
we’d written it for a movie, but never used it.”
Arlen praised the song, so Harburg tossed out the first lyric.
“I started looking for an idea, something that had to do with witchcraft,
something eerie, with overtones of voodoo.
Eventually it became ‘Old Devil Moon.’
Strangely constructed.
It doesn’t have a verse, and it isn’t the ordinary thirty-two-bar song at all,
but it became very popular.
That’s what made it a great song--it was original.”


Finian's Rainbow


I looked at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me

I looked at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me
It's that old devil moon
That you stole from the sky
It's that old devil moon in your eyes

You and your glance makes this romance too hot to handle
Stars in the night blazin' their light can't hold a candle
To your razzle dazzle
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside
I just wanna cry
Wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that old devil moon in your eyes

Just when I think I'm free as a dove
Old evil moon deep in your eyes
Blinds me with love

I looked at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me

I looked at you and suddenly
Something in your eyes I see
Soon begins bewitching me
It's that old devil moon
That you stole from the sky
It's that old devil moon in your eyes

You and your glance makes this romance too hot to handle
Stars in the night blazin' their light can't hold a candle
To your razzle dazzle
You've got me flyin' high and wide
On a magic carpet ride
Full of butterflies inside
I just wanna cry
Wanna croon
Wanna laugh like a loon
It's that old devil moon in your eyes

Just when I think I'm free as a dove
Old evil moon deep in your eyes
Blinds me with love
