    D                                G         A              D

    Now young Mr. Moon flew away in the night

    D                                G         A              D

    With his best friend Magnus right by his side

    D                                      G             A                 D

    They soared through the Milky Way counting the stars

    D                   G                 A              D  Dsus2

    Once around Venus, twice around Mars

     

             D                     G              A          D

    Then they spied an island rise out of the sea

    D                             G           A              D

    They fell back to Earth just as free as you please

    D                         G                     A                 D

    The children all gathered the church bells did ring

    D                G                 A           D

    Suddenly everyone started to sing

     

    Chorus

    D                  G        A       D

    Chanson pour les petits enfants

    D                   A7                 D

    Chason pour toute le monde

    D                 G        A         D

    Chanson pour les petits enfants

    D                       A7                 D

    Chanson pour toute le monde

     

    D                     G              A          D

    Queen of the island she welcomed them in

    D                     G              A          D

    Asked them questions of where they have been

    D                                G         A              D

    She offered them chocolate she offered them tea

    D                                G         A              D

    They all took their seats in the top of a tree

     

            D                         G                  A                           D

    And raccoons brought wine and the mice they brought cheese

    D             G                 A              D

    Beautiful birds floated by on the breeze

             D                G             A              D

    From out of the oceans the dolphins began

    D                G                     A                 D

    Humming a tune that soon covered the land

     

    Chorus

     

    D                          G                A              D

    So young Princess Lia brought coral and pearls

    D                  G                   A              D

    Gifts to the travelers from some other world

    D                         G                A          D

    The bush doctor mixed up a magical spell

    D                      G           A          D

    Swore them to secrecy, never to tell

     

           D              G               A              D

    So young Mr. Moon flew away in the night

             D                     G              A              D

    With his best friend Magnus still right by his side

            D             G                A              D

    The sun was rising, they'd be home by noon

    D                     G                  A         D

    Humming the words to this magical tune

     

    Chorus x2
