About Someone Turned The Moon Upside Down
This song was based on a composition by Franz Liszt. It is rumored that K.C. Rogan is a pseudonym for the lyricist Johnny Burke, though no documentation of this has been found in the research for this site. However, some songs attributed to Rogan were published by Burke and Van Heusen in the 1950s.


Someone turned the moon upside down
It’s shining on the wrong side of town
And what can I do
Your with someone new
I wish the moon were right side up
Oh how I miss you

All the tales I hear round about
They nearly turn my heart inside out
I try so hard to smile, but nothing seems worthwhile
Why even sun wears a frown
Since someone turned the moon upside down
