Mēness suns Kad ceļš mājās ved Zinu es , kāds mani gaida Mans labais draugs Tevis dēļ, es vienmēr smaidu Nakts tevi nenobiedēs Vējš tavas bailes kliedēs Tu esi mans labais draugs Mēness, tavu balsi ver Mēness, stari sapņus ķer Tālais, zelta mēnestiņš Ar tevi runā viņš Tevi māna viņš Tev krūtīs pukst suņa sirds Kad nakts lietus līst Guli tu, pie manām kājām Šo vietu mēs Varam saukt, par savām mājām Tu..... Esi mans vienīgais labais draugs... 2x Mēness, tavu balsi ver Mēness, stari sapņus ķer Tālais ,zelta mēnestiņš Ar tevi runā tā Tevi māna tā Tev krūtīs pukst suņa sirds Mēness, tavu balsi ver Mēness, stari sapņus ķer Tālais ,zelta mēnestiņš Ar tevi runā tā Tevi māna tā Mēness, mēness, mēness un suns
Moon Dog When the road leads home I know someone is waiting My good old friend You always keep me smiling Night won’t scare you Your fear’ll be blown away by wind You are my good old friend The moon strings along your voice The moon beams catch your dreams The distant golden moon Speaks to you Beckons you Yours is the heart of a dog When the night rain is falling You’re sleeping at my feet This is the place We can call home You... Are my only best friend... 2x The moon strings along your voice The moon beams catch your dreams The distant golden moon Speaks to you Beckons you Yours is the heart of a dog The moon strings along your voice The moon beams catch your dreams The distant golden moon Speaks to you Beckons you The moon, the moon, the moon and the dog
