They came from the hills
And they came from the valleys and the plains
They struggled in the cold
In the heat and the snow and in the rain

Came to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon

We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon

Sub luna saltamus

They came from the south
From the west and the north and from the east
They waited for the man
Like a parish is waiting for the priest

Longed to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon

We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon

Sub luna saltamus

He gave them a dream
He seduced everybody in the land
The fire in his eyes
And the fear was a weapon in his hand

So they let him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon

We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon

And we dance beneath the moon
