I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill
On Blueberry Hill when I found you
The moon stood still on Blueberry Hill
And lingered until my dreams came true

(The wind in the willow played
Love’s sweet melody
But all of those vows we made
Were never to be)

Though we’re apart, you’re part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill

(I found my thrill)
Come climb the hill with me, baby
(on Blueberry Hill)
We’ll see what we shall see
(on Blueberry Hill)
I’ll bring my horn with me
(when I found you)
I’ll be wit’ you where berries are blue
(the moon stood still)
Each afternoon we’ll go
(on Blueberry Hill)
Higher than the moon we’ll go
(and lingered until)
Then, to a weddin’ in June we’ll go
(my dreams came true)
Ba-ba-da-de-buzz-buzz va-de-n-da-day

The wind in the willow played (do you really love me)
Love’s sweet melody (as I love you?)
But all of those vows we made (will you still remember)
Were never to be (when the night is through?)

Though we’re apart, you’re part of me still
For you were my thrill on Blueberry Hill
