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, weI 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!
