Music Therapy with Miss Moon


Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
~ Sophia Loren

Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart.
~ Kahlil Gibran

" Glamour is a shooting star, it catches your eye, but fades away, beauty is the sun always brilliant day after day."
~ Mike Dolan

Hello. My name is Audrey... and I am NOT glamorous. And I'm resigned to the fact that I may never be one of those women who just look effortlessly posh, like June Ambrose. I'm waaay to awkward to pull that off, but that's okay. I and women like me possess a different type of beauty. A loveliness that's all our own.


Audrey Hepburn is hands down one of the most beautiful women to have walked the earth. What made her so lovely, though, wasn't the gowns or the makeup... it was her extraordinary spirit. So today, let's take a cue from Audrey (with a little help from Kay Thompson) "On how to be lovely", from the movie "Funny Face". I hope that this song will make you smile and feel a bit more lovely today! Enjoy!

On how to be lovely
(On how to be lovely) 
You got to be happy 
(You got to be happy) 
When you can feel 
light and gay 
Then you'll be lovely 
as a holiday.

On how to be charming 
(On how to be charming) 
You got to be merry 
(You got to be merry) 
If only to weave a spell 
And you'll be lovely 
As a carousel too.

I (I know you can) show how. 
It's (it's all in the) know-how. 
And (and once you know) oh how 
The world looks good to you 
As it should to you.

On how to be lovely 
(On how to be lovely) 
You got to be jolly 
(You got to be jolly) 
When you can be fancy-free
And flash a smile that 
Folks come flocking to see.

You'll be as lovely 
As can be.

Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo-ee 
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo-ee 
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo 
Boo-diddly-ba-bau! Ee-

Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo-ee 
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo-ee 
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo 
Boo-diddly-ba-bau!
(Boo-diddly-ba-bau!)
Boo-diddly-ba-baa-pa-daa!

Can't (can't do it with) make-up 
You (you've just got to) wake up 
And (and startin' to) take up 
A life delirious 
Nothing serious.

On how to be lovely 
(On how to be lovely) 
You got to be cheery 
(You got to be cheery) 
I'll give you a guarantee 
You don't need dough 
You don't need a college degree.

Make sorrow incidental 
(Let joy be monumental) 
And you'll be lovely 
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo(-ee)
Do-wee-oo 
Do-wee-oo(-ee)
You'll be as lovely 
As can be
A-do-ee-oo-ee-oo-ee-oo!
