Here is the lyrics of that songs...

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 out to see the Ramadan Moon
Clouds shift; fog lift!
City put out your lights
We want to see the Ramadan Moon - tonight!

Moon ... Ramadan Moon

From the early break of dawn
We'll 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 out to see the Ramadan Moon
Clouds shift; fog lift!
City put out your lights
We want to see the Ramadan Moon - tonight!

C'mon, c'mon Ramadan Moon ...Ramadan Moon

Now Granddad's in I'tiqaf
Only ten days are left
He's praying every night
Dressed all in white
Hands held high
With tears in his eye
Asking for forgiveness
And Paradise

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!

Moon ... Ramadan Moon

Now its time again for Eid
Ramadan ran with speed
Will it come again?
Like an old friend?
Ramadan Moon
Like an old friend?
Ramadan Moon
