Lyrics by Roma Ryan


Latin:

Mare Nubium. Umbriel.
Mare Imbrium. Ariel.
Et itur ad astra.
Et itur ad astra.
Mare Undarum. Io. Vela.

Mirabile dictu. Mirabilia.
Mirabile visu. Mirabilia.
Et itur ad astra.
Et itur ad astra.
Sempervirent. Rosetum.

Afer Ventus. Zephyrus.
Volturnus. Africus.
Et itur ad astra.
Et itur ad astra.
Etesiarum. Eurus.

Running verse:
Suus cuique mos. Suum cuique.
Meus mihi, suus cuique carus.
Memento, terrigena.
Memento, vita brevis.
Meus mihi, suus cuique carus.
Translation from Latin:

Sea of Clouds. Umbriel.
Sea of Showers. Ariel.
And we go to the stars.
And we go to the stars.
Sea of Waves. Io. Vela.

Wonderful to relate. Marvels.
Wonderful to see. Wonders.
And we go to the stars.
And we go to the stars.
Evergreen. A rose garden.

African Wind. Zephyrus.
Volturnus. Africus.
And we go to the stars.
And we go to the stars.
Etesiarum. Eurus.

Running verse:
Each has its own habits. Each its own.
Mine to me, its own to each is dear.
Remember, life is earth-born.
Remember, it is brief.
Mine to me, its own to each is dear.
