Sag das Zauberwort ("Say the Magic Word") was the first opening theme song used in the German dub of the Sailor Moon anime. The song was most prominently used for the first season. A short, slow version of it was also used as ending song throughout the series. The theme was also reused in the Dutch dub under the title "Zeg het Toverwoord."

While widely known and referred to as "Sag das Zauberwort" within the German fandom, it should be noted that the song's title is consistently given as "Sailor Moon" in official soundtrack CDs.

Lyrics[edit]

German[edit]

Sag das Zauberwort und du hast die Macht
Halt den Mondstein fest und spür die Kraft
Du kannst es tun
Oh Sailor Moon

Kämpfe für den Sieg über Dunkelheit
Folge deinem Traum von Gerechtigkeit
Du kannst es tun
Oh Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Oh Sailor Moon

Mondstein flieg und sieg, es is soweit
Oh Sailor Moon

English Translation[edit]

Say the magic word and you have the might
Hold the Moonstone firmly and feel the power
You can do it
Oh Sailor Moon

Fight for the victory over darkness
Follow your dream of justice
You can do it
Oh Sailor Moon

Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon
Oh Sailor Moon

Moonstone fly and win, it is time
Oh Sailor Moon

Trivia[edit]

  • The phrase "Moonstone fly and win" in the second-to-last line, was the German translation of Moon Tiara Action. It can hence be assumed that the second line of the lyrics ("Hold the Moonstone firmly") also refers to Sailor Moon's tiara.
  • The song has been released on CD in an "English Mix" with new lyrics in English. They are not a translation of the original German lyrics.
