Medley: What Good Would the Moon Be? / Here I’ll Stay lyrics


Langston Hughes

[Part I: What Good Would the Moon Be?]

I've looked in the windows at diamonds
They're beautiful but they're cold
I've seen Broadway stars in fur coats
That cost a fortune so I'm told
I guess I'd look nice in diamonds
And sables might add to my charms
But if someone I don't care for should buy them
I'd rather have two loving arms!

What good would the moon be
Unless the right one shared its beams?
What good would dreams-come-true be
If love wasn't in those dreams?
And a primrose path
What would be the fun
Of walking down a path like that
Without the right one?
What good would the night be
Without the right lips whispеring low
Kiss me, oh darling, kiss me
While еvening stars still glow?
No, it won't be a primrose path for me
No, it won't be diamonds and gold
But maybe it will be
Someone who'll love me
Someone who'll love just me
To have and to hold!
[Part II: Here I'll Stay]

There's a far land, I'm told
Where I'll find a field of gold
But here I'll stay with you

And they say there's an isle deep in clover
Where your heart wears a smile all day through

But I know well they're wrong
And I know where I belong
And here I'll stay with you

For that land is a sandy illusion
It's the theme of a dream gone astray
And the world others woo
I can find loving you
And so here I'll stay
And so here I'll stay
