Lyrics of the All Around This World version:

Chanda mama raavayya
Moon, sweet moon, moon, sweet moon

Original lyrics of Chandamama from Mama Lisa’s World:
Chandamaama raave, jaabilli raave
Kondekki raave, koti poolu theve
Bandekki raave, banti poolu theve
Theru meeda raave, thene pattu theve
Pallaki lo raave paalu perugu theve
Parugetti raave, panasa pandu theve
Naa maata vinave, nattinta pettave
Annee theve abbayiki iyyave!

Come moon, come sweet moon
Come over the hill, bring a million flowers
Come on a chariot, bring a bunch of Marigolds
Come over the brook, bring a comb of honey
Come on a palanquin, bring milk and curd
Come on running, bring a Jackfruit
Now listen to me and keep them here right
Bring them all for baby’s delight

Original lyrics from version from Playing for Change, :
Chanda maama chanda maama raavayyaa
nannu yettukoni muddulaadu kovayyaa
maaraalu nenenni cesinaa gaaraalu nive cupinaa
maaraalu nenenni cesinaa gaaraalu nive cupinaa
Chanda maama chanda maama raavayyaa
nannu yettukoni muddulaadu kovayyaa
Chanda mama raavayya : Moon please come
Nannu yetthukoni muddhuladi povayya : Hold me and kiss me and go
Maraalu nenenni chesina : Thou I always sulked and made petty demands
Gaaralyu neeve chupina: YOu always returned your TLC (tender loving care) and pampered me
