Tell me silver moon*

النسخ: #1#2
Idiot who doesn't understand
the legend which like this
says that a gypsy
begged the moon
until daybreak
crying she asked
a gypsy who would want
to marry her out of love
 
You will have your man,
dark-haired woman 1
From the sky replied the full moon,
but you have to give me
your kid the first one
as soon as you give birth to it
that one for a man2
his child sacrificed
very little he would love it
 
Moon you want to be a mother
you don't find the love
which fulfils your prayer
tell me silver moon
you who don't have hands
how to rock3 the child
child4 of the moon
 
From a dark gypsy 5
was born the child
just like the ermine
he was white
his pupils gray
no green color 6
albino7son of the moon
cursed you illegitimate child8!
you are the son of a non-gypsy
you are the son of a white-faced9
 
Moon you want to be a mother
you don't find love
that fulfils your prayer
tell me silver moon
you who don't have arms
how to rock the child
son of the moon
 
The gypsy believing to be dishonored
knife in his hands his woman
found
the child is not mine
you cheated on me I can see
to death he wounded it
And the child in his arms
the hill he went up
up there he abandonned it...
 
Moon you want to be a mother
you don't find love
that fulfils your prayer
tell me silver moon
you who don't have arms
how to rock the child
son of the moon
 
And the nights in which the kid plays and laughs
of joy also the moon is full up 10
and when the child cries
it decreases 11
to make him
a crandle of light
