The Man in the Moon (Mann im Mond)

English translation

The Man in the Moon

Come, little girl, the night is young
Be good, be nice, silent would be best
I'll show you paths that no one knows
Ensorcelled places that only I know by name
 
The man in the moon
Look up, the man in the moon
it's him who's enthroned over all
Look up, the man in the moon
 
The night is clear, our view reaches far
In the heavens a fairy-tale world slumbers
The stars twinkle, the wind whispers
I'll show you where all the little children are
 
The man in the moon
Look up, the man in the moon
it's him who's enthroned over all
Look up, the man in the moon
 
We can all fly, we're as free as the wind
The night lends us wings, come along, my child
We'll ride the clouds, don't you hear the call?
And far off in the heavens above us only one looks on
 
The man in the moon
There's the man in the moon
who lives above the clouds
Look up, the man in the moon
 
One last thing left for us to do
Bid farewell, little one, then climb in the chest
You needn't cry, it won't hurt
Set forth on the journey, step into the snow
I'll cover you tenderly with leaves
The branches will softly sing a song as I do
Now, my angel, find peace forever
And quietly the man in the moon looks on
 
There's the man in the moon
Look up, the man in the moon
who lives above the clouds
There's the man in the moon
The man in the moon
who's enthroned over us all
Look up, the man in the moon
He watches [as in "I'll take first watch"], alone, the man in the moon
The light of dawn colors him red
the man, the man in the moon
