    Ramadan Moon

    Ramadan Moon, Ramadan Moon,

    Oh the people are coming and going; getting ready, to-ing and fro-ing
    There’s a buzz in the world tonight; people are so excited
    Daddy’s coming home soon; hoping to see the moon
    Hoping to catch a sight; everyone’s so happy

    Moon, Moon, come out soon
    We’re out to see the Ramadan Moon
    Clouds shift; fog lift! City put out your lights
    We want to see the Ramadan Moon – tonight!

    Now Ramadan has started; and the Moon has just been sighted
    Tomorrow we all fast – every Muslim must
    Now ‘Esha time is here; and it’s time to leave for prayer
    The Imam is in the Mosque; the Qur’an is in his heart

    Moon, Moon, come out soon
    We’re off to see the Ramadan Moon
    Clouds shift; fog lift! City put out your lights
    We want to see the Ramadan Moon – tonight!

    Moon, moon, moon,

    From the early break of dawn, we’ll go the whole day long
    Shops are full of dates – but still we have to wait
    Till the sun goes down, and it’s time to break our siyyam,
    The food is on the plate – ooh! It tastes so good!

    Moon, Moon, come out soon
    We’re off to see the Ramadan Moon
    Clouds shift; fog lift! City put out your lights
    We want to see the Ramadan Moon – tonight!
