Thread Name: Origins: I See the Moon, The Moon Sees Me
Subject: RE: I see the Moon, The Moon sees me ^^
Mom used to sing us asleep with this one.

I see the moon, the moon sees me,
Moon sees someone I'm longing to see.
Please let the moon that shines on me
Shine on the one I love.

CHO: Over the mountains, over the sea,
Back where my heart is longing to be.
(repeat the last two lines of the last verse)

I hear the lark, the lark hears me,
Lark hears someone I'm longing to see.
Please let the lark that sings for me,
Sing for the one I love.

There may have been a 'rose' verse in there too, but I cant come up with the wording (sleep was NOT aided by singing "I smell a rose, the rose smells me . .")^^
