The Night We Called It a Day

Performed by Frank Sinatra

Written by Matt Dennis & Tom Adair

There was a moon out in space
But a cloud drifted over its ____1_____
You kissed me and went on your way
The night we called it a day

I heard the ____2_____ of the spheres
Like a minor lament in my ears
I hadn’t the heart left to pray
The night we called it a day

Soft through the dark
The hoot of an owl in the ____3_____
Sad though his song
No bluer was he than I

The moon went down, ____4_____ were gone
But the ____5_____ didn’t rise with the dawn
There wasn’t a thing left to say
The night we called it a day

Soft through the dark
The hoot of an owl in the ____6_____
Sad though his song
No bluer was he than I

The moon went down, ____7_____ were gone
But the ____8_____ didn’t rise with the dawn
There wasn’t a thing left to say
The night we called it a day
