Zermatt Day and Night Lyrics:

Deep in the Swiss mountains
Stands between you and heaven
A magic giant rock, which changes looks
Wherever you stand

It towers the edge of a small town,
You must reach on a train ride this jewel crown,
Then stroll, hail an electric cab,
There are no honking cars, no pollution

For a day or the season
They come, from the world’s far horizons
To feel in their heart the seduction
As their eyes meet the empress of mountains

In Zermatt,
Day and night,
You will find the most beautiful rides, the most beautiful trails, the most beautiful sights;
Your first time,
You will find,
That you’ve come
For the charm, for the town, for the proud Matterhorn…

Endless glaciers and mountains
Cradle your journey in heaven
While you walk up or down
Ski, surf or climb
Or just please your eyes

While mountain goats on the rocks climb
And marmots whistle as you walk by
Ski down the immense alpine grounds
Gornergrat or Rothorn,
Sunegga Paradise

Ride the Klein Matterhorn bahn,
Onto Italy, ski the Ventina down,
Beware not to miss the last ride
From Cervinia, come on!
Shuss down the Swiss side!

In Zermatt,
Day and night,
You will find the most beautiful rides, the most beautiful trails, the most beautiful sights;
It’s your time
To unwind
Since you’ve come
For the sports, for the fun, for the proud Matterhorn…

Feel the buzz of this cool town,
Hear its gifted musicians,
While you lunch in altitude cafés
And tune to their songs echoed from the mountain

A must, coming down from your ski day,
Stop at the Hennu Stall bar on the way,
Where all dance, singles and married lovers,
Seniors and youngsters
On tables will sway

And later when you’re back in town
Rock at the Paperla Pub wild legend,
Or club at the Postli Pink,
Sing along at Snowboat,
Or the Grampi Gee’s

In Zermatt,
Day and night,
You will find the most beautiful rides, the most beautiful trails, the most beautiful sights;
You’ll come back,
To Zermatt,
Cause like all, you’ll have fallen in love, and left part of your heart, in Zermatt!
