A shuddering vision appeared one day at the door of my house
Pale spectre and shadow, as if the nose was a hole in the sky
A shivering figure once dragged from the sea like a loathsome head
Undressing before me, then tearing its flesh with demented glee
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la
Crept into the hallway, already at home on the carpet and walls
Unpacking a suitcase, pale spectre in spare room and under my feet
Now Jove he was half asleep for several hours that afternoon
This unwanted creature crawled into a corner crying ‘Where is the moon?’
Sha la la la la
Sha la la la la
Pale spectre and shadow cried, "Where is the moon tonight? It is like an enormous light"
And I replied
"Heaven’ll help you out, visitant, Heaven’ll help you out"
"Heaven’ll help you out, visitant, Heaven’ll help you out"
Pale spectre and shadow said, "Your tale is not quite right; it is just an outrageous lie"
And I can’t deny
Pale spectre and shadow cried, "Where is the moon tonight? It is like an enormous light
And I replied
I said sha la la la la . . . .
