Billie Holiday /

The Moon Looks Down and Laughs

(Bert Kalmar / Sid Silvers / Harry Ruby)

The moon looks down and laughs
And says, "I told you so"
Why did I let you go away
I was so sure you loved me madly
And when I wanted you

You'd gladly come back to me
I never realised the day we said goodbye
How very sorry I would be
And every night when I walk
Up and down this lonesome town
The moon looks down and laughs at me
