Breakfast at Tiffany's

Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossin' you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heartbreaker
Wherever you're goin', I'm goin' 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,
Waitin' 'round the bend,
My huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.
