     "Moon River" by Henri Mancini

Lyrics by Johnny Mercer



Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you're going I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end--
waiting 'round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.


Country Look.

The look first appears when Holly sings "Moon River". Her hair is tied back in a towel.  She is wearing basic blue jeans and a sweatshirt; very reminiscent of a domesticated house wife.  She is very child-like and basic with appearance.



"Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself."
