CM7 Cm7 G6 Bm7-5 Em Cdim When they met, the way they smiled, I saw that I was through; Am7 D9 Am7 D7 G Gdim Am7 D9 Oh, you crazy moon, what did you do? CM7 Cm7 G6 Bm7-5 Em Cdim And when they kissed, they tried to say that it was just in fun; Am7 D9 Am7 D7 G Am7 G Em Oh, you crazy moon, look what you've done. Bridge: Am Am+7 A9 Dm7 Am Am+7 E7 Once you promised me, you know, that this could never end; Am Am+7 Dm7 E7 A Am7 D7 You should be ashamed to show your funny face, my friend. CM7 Cm7 G6 Bm7-5 Em Cdim There they are -- they fell in love. I guess you think you're smart. A9 Am7 D9 Am7 D7 G Am7 G Oh, you crazy moon, you broke my heart. Bridge 2: D7 G Em Cdim It was just a night like this when it happened; D7 C Cm7 G I was such an unsuspecting soul. D7 G G/F# E E+7 And I couldn't quite believe that it happened E7 A7 Am7 D7 Til it got beyond control. CM7 Cm7 G6 Bm7-5 Em- Cdim Well, there they are, they fell in love; I guess you think you're smart. A9 Am7 D9 A9 Am7 Bm7-5 Oh, you crazy moon, oh, you crazy moon, A9 Am7 D9 Am7 D7 G Edim C Cm7 G6 Oh, you crazy moon, you broke my heart.
*Sinatra's version may be the better known -- by a little -- but Tormé includes a second bridge melody that Sinatra's Nelson Riddle arrangement leaves out, and utilizes a straight-forward vocal line that gives the accompaniest more room to improvise upon.
