Over the Moon – Mooncakes Lyrics

Mooncakes Lyrics – Ruthie Ann Miles, John Cho, & Cathy Ang – from Over the Moon (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) (2020)

Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Sift the flour, let the eggs crack
Knead the dough on every hour
Then we start it all again

Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Form the dough around the filling
Brush with egg and please no spilling
What a lovely gift they are

And there’s tradition in these mooncakes
And we make every one with care
Then we bake them full of fondness, sweetness
Lofting through the air

And there is magic in these mooncakes
You can feel it all around
Mooncakes where the magic is found

Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Sift the flour, let the eggs crack
Knead the dough on every hour
Then we start it all again

Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Stuff! Roll! Press! Smack!
Form the dough around the filling
Brush with egg and please no spilling
What a lovely gift they are

We need five more
Or maybe twelve
Because I’ve got the cousins coming

And you know just how they are

They loves these cakes
So I think you better give me twenty more

Each one holds a message from the moon above
“Cherish life and everything you love”
Magic in these mooncakes

Magic in these mooncakes

Hidden in these mooncakes for you

Magic in these mooncakes for you
How the leaves are changing
Soon the festival begins
Such a special feeling

Magic in these mooncakes
Hidden in these mooncakes for you

And there are memories in these mooncakes
All these memories shared with you
All the stories that you told me, mother
Make me think of you

Magic in these memories
Forever I hold true
Mooncakes and the memories of you
