one day i walked along
a moonlit island shore
and soon i heard a song
i’ve never heard before

i said who can it be
to sing so tenderly
and saw a dust he made
with lonely serenade

mamula moon
shine high above the southern sea
and like my love
say form again to me

we said goodbye
beside the blue lagoon
alone am i
with you mamula moon

i waved my hand
the grey ship sailed across the bay
on golden sand
that might i melt to pray

that i might see
my love returning soon
still true to me
and you mamula moon

    One day I walked along, a moonlit island shore?
    And soon I heard a song, I’d never heard before
    I said who can it be, who sings so tenderly?
    and saw a dusky maid, with lonely serenade

    Mamula moon, shine high above the southern sea?
    And light my love, safe home again to me
    We said goodbye, beside the blue lagoon?
    Alone am I, with you Mamula moon

    I waved my hand, the grey ship sailed across the bay?
    On golden sands, that night I knelt to pray
    That I might see, my love returning soon?
    Still true to me, and you Mamula moon

  2. I learnt this song from my elder Sister and our friends (in India ), when I was about 6-7 years of age and this was during the W.W.2.I have never forgotten the lyrics and harmony. I treasure it till I die.
