полюшко поле

Meadowlands, meadowlands,
Through you heroes now are treading
Red army heroes of the nation
Heroes of the mighty Red army, ah!

Maidens are weeping
Their solitary vigils keeping
Weeping for their sweethearts who are fighting
Fighting in the mighty Red army, ah!

Gay roads are winding
The sunlight on them now is shining
Over them the heroes are passing
Heroes of the mighty Red army, ah!

Let ev'ry maiden
With heart no longer heavy laden
Strike up the singing now more loudly
Sing our fighting song so proudly, ah!

Sunny Afternoon

The tax man's taken all my dough
And left me in this stately home
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
And I can't sail my yacht
He's taken everything I got
All I've got's this sunny afternoon

Save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

My girlfriend's run off with my car
And gone back to her ma and pa
Telling tails of drunkenness and cruelty
Now I'm sitting here
Sipping at my ice cold beer
Lazing on a sunny afternoon

Help me, help me, help me sail away
Well give me two good reasons why I oughta stay
'Cause I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

Ah, save me, save me, save me from this squeeze
I gotta big fat mama trying to break me
And I love to live so pleasantly
Live this life of luxury
Lazing on a sunny afternoon
In a summertime
In a summertime
In a summertime

English translation (TAKK til Oda L og):
NORWAY NEED FARMERS

I've always learned that tings don't happen by themselves
The food on the table, we harvest from arable
For several generations our farm has been in the family
But all the state reforms are ploughing the norms

Do you think we can get some new leaders in place
Who can see we need to eat, not just balance the sheet
Nobody really knows what the future might bring
Can't stand to watch the farms, they really need an upswing

Chorus1:
Grew up with the greenest fingers
With pigs and ducks and cows and chickens
Live the farmer, Listhaug, you can go to bed!
Soon we’ll stand with empty hands
Do not know how this will end
Live the farmer! Listhaug, you can go to bed!

There are so much the farmers must do on a farm
Manage and garden, building and tinkering
Economists take over crops and our clover
Can't really harvest, due to lack of hairy chest

Bridge:
Tradition I want to uphold, the state want my land to be sold
I get angry and sad, this farm is all I have
-
Shakes and pills in our lunch box? Government - please just grow up
Wake up Norway! Listhaug, you can go to bed!

Listhaug wants to import more food,
but just listen to us, 'cause we have to produce
What happens if the world gets struck by disaster
The talking of politics will not make food faster

Bridge:
Do you think we can get some new leaders in place
Who can see we need to eat, not just balance the sheet
Nobody really knows what the future might bring
Can't stand to watch the farms - they need an upswing

Chorus2:
In the papers and on TV, farmers are worried
waiting for society to listen up
Farmers won't be suffering
when city-stomachs are screaming,
the farmer's always feeding his family

Chorus3:
We cannot eat money, quality food is what we need
Market pressure, not a pleasure
Safe, good food! (is what we need)
-
We produce quality,
food produced with love not greed
Live the farmer! Listhaug, you can go to bed!

Chorus1:
Grew up with the greenest fingers
With pigs and ducks and cows and chickens
Live the farmer, Listhaug, you can go to bed!

You Can't Say No To a Soldier

Listen little lady, it's the order of the day
Issued by the highest of authority
Fellows in the service simply can't be turned away
You know that defence must get priority
So if you're patriotically inclined
Heed the call to arm and keep this thought in mind

You can't say no to a soldier
A sailor or a handsome marine
No, you can't say no if he wants to dance
If he's gonna fight, he's got a right to romance

So, get out your lipstick and powder
Be beautiful and dutiful too
If he's not your type, then it's still okay
You can always kiss him in a sisterly way
Oh, you can't say no, no you gotta give in
If you want him to win for you

(Orchestral Interlude)

You simply can't say no, no, no, no, no, no, no
To a soldier or a handsome marine
Lady, what would you say, if he said, "Let's dance"
I'd say, "Brother, you have got a right to romance, let's dance"

So, get out your lipstick and powder
Be beautiful and dutiful too
If he says it's cold on those submarines
You can knit a sweater, but that's not what he means

Oh, you can't say no, no, no, no, no, no, no
They're not made of tin
So, you'd better give in
If you want him to win for you

So Bob was appearing on a TV show ("for General Electric," says Mavis) with the Staples singers.

At lunchtime Bob says to Roebuck: "Pop, I want to marry Mavis!" flower

Roebuck says" "Don't tell me, tell Mavis."


Yonder comes little david with his rock and sling,
I don’t want to meet him—he’s a dangerous man;
Talk about little David—he’s a mighty man,
Well he killed Goliath, took his head to the king (yo).

[Sit down servant and rest awhile, sit down]

Sit down servant / I cain’t sidown
Sit down / Woo I cain’t sidown
I just got to heaven,and I cain’t sidown, I want to walk around.

Too soon to be out of me bed,
Too soon to be back to this bus queue caper,
Fumbling for change for me picture paper,
On a Monday morning.

Oh, where has the weekend gone?
Oh, where are the wine and the beer I tasted?
Gone the same way as the pay I wasted,
On a Monday morning.

If only the birds were booze,
If only the sun was a party giver,
If I could just give someone else me liver,
On a Monday morning.

My lover she lies asleep,
My lover is warm, and her heart is mellow,
I'd give the whole world just to share her pillow,
On a Monday morning.

The Rolling Mills of New Jersey

When I die, bury me low
    Where I can hear the petroleum flow
    A sweeter sound I never did know
    The rolling mills of New Jersey.


In Hoboken, there will be
Garbage as far as the eye can see
Enough for you, enough for me.
The garbage cans of New Jersey:

When I die, bury me low
    Where I can hear the petroleum flow
    A sweeter sound I never did know
    The rolling mills of New Jersey.


Down in Trenton, there is a bar
Where the bums come from near and from far
They come by truck, they come by car
The lousy bums of New Jersey:

When I die, bury me low
    Where I can hear the petroleum flow
    A sweeter sound I never did know
    The rolling mills of New Jersey.


When first I started to roam
I traveled far away from Bayonne
Then I sat down, and wrote this poem
I wrote an ode to New Jersey:

When I die, bury me low
    Where I can hear the petroleum flow
    A sweeter sound I never did know
    The rolling mills of New Jersey.

CLOSE TO ME

You seem awfly nice, so this won't take long
I just gotta let you know that you should be movin' on.
If you want my advice, I think it would be wrong
For you to get close to me.

Well I can be sweet, I can be perfectly kind,
I can be anything since it ain't my heart on the line.
It would be so easy, it would be so blind
For you to get close to me.

Well, maybe I'll call the one I fully want.
'til that day comes, baby won't you leave me alone.

I can see that you're waiting for some kind of sign.
I know you're ready for love but I'm never gonna make up my mind.
It's not a matter of patience, it's not a matter of time
For you to get close to me.

Well maybe I'll call the one I fully want.
But 'til that day comes I recommend that you don't
get too close to me.

Richmond am a hard road to trabble, I believe

Would you like to hear my song? I'm afraid it's rather long
Of the famous "On to Richmond" double trouble,
Of the half-a-dozen trips and half-a-dozen slips
And the very latest bursting of the bubble.

'Tis pretty hard to sing and like a round, round ring
'Tis a dreadful knotty puzzle to unravel;
Though all the papers swore, when we touched Virginia's shore
That Richmond was a hard road to travel.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
Richmond is a hard road to travel
Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve
Richmond is a hard road to travel, I believe.

First, McDowell, bold and gay, set forth the shortest way,
By Manassas in the pleasant summer weather,
But unfortunately ran on a Stonewall, foolish man,
And had a "rocky journey" altogether;

And he found it rather hard to ride o'er Beauregard,
And Johnston proved a deuce of a bother,
And 'twas clear beyond a doubt that he didn't like the route,
And a second time would have to try another.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For Manassas is a hard road to travel;
Manassas gave us fits, and Bull Run made us grieve,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I believe!

Next came the Wooly-Horse, with an overwhelming force,
To march down to Richmond by the Valley,
But he couldn't find the road, and his "onward movement" showed
His campaigning was a mere shilly-shally.

Then Commissary Banks, with his motley foreign ranks,
Kicking up a great noise, fuss, and flurry,
Lost the whole of his supplies, and with tears in his eyes,
From the Stonewall ran away in a hurry

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For the Valley is a hard road to travel;
The Valley wouldn't do and we all had to leave,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I believe!

Then the great Galena came, with her portholes all aflame,
And the Monitor, that famous naval wonder,
But the guns at Drewry's Bluff gave them speedily enough,
The loudest sort of reg'lar Rebel thunder.

The Galena was astonished and the Monitor admonished,
Our patent shot and shell were mocked at,
While the dreadful Naugatuck, by the hardest kind of luck,
Was knocked into an ugly cocked hat.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For James River is a hard road to travel;
The gun-boats gave it up in terror and despair,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I declare!

Then McClellan followed soon, both with spade and balloon,
To try the Peninsular approaches,
But one and all agreed that his best rate of speed
Was no faster than the slowest of "slow coaches."

Instead of easy ground, at Williamsburg, he found,
A Longstreet indeed, and nothing shorter,
And it put him in the dumps, that spades wasn't trumps,
And the Hills he couldn't level as ordered.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve
For Longstreet is a hard road to travel -
Lay down the shovel, and throw away the spade
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I'm afraid!

Then said Lincoln unto Pope,
"You can make the trip, I hope,
I will save the Universal Yankee nation,
To make sure of no defeat, I'll leave no lines of retreat,
And issue a famous proclamation."

But that same dreaded Jackson, this fellow laid his whacks,
And made him, by compulsion, a seceder,
And Pope took rapid flight from Manassas' second fight,
'Twas his very last appearance as a leader.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For Stonewall is a hard road to travel;
Pope did his very best, but was evidently sold,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I am told!

Last of all the brave Burnside, with his pontoon bridges, tried
A road no one had thought of before him,
With two hundred thousand men for the Rebel slaughter pen,
And the blessed Union flag waving o'er him;

But he met a fire like hell, of canister and shell,
That mowed his men down with great slaughter,
'Twas a shocking sight to view, that second Waterloo,
And the river ran with more blood than water.

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
Rappahannock is a hard road to travel
Burnside got in a trap, which caused him for to grieve
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I believe!

We are very much perplexed to know who is the next
To command the new Richmond expedition,
For the Capital must blaze, and that in ninety days,
And Jeff and his men be sent to perdition.

We'll take the cursed town, and then we'll burn it down,
And plunder and hang up each cursed Rebel;
Yet the contraband was right when he told us they would fight
"Oh, yes, massa, they fight like the devil!"

Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel;
Then pull off your coat and roll up your sleeve,
For Richmond is a hard road to travel, I believe!"

I could spend ages asking myself why
There's a million ways that I could say goodbye
But I turn down the lights
Come on baby come inside
Better then being some fool's bride
Better than pretending to know what's wrong and what's right

Turn down the lights
Come on baby, come inside
Better than pretending to know what's wrong and what's right
Better than being some fool's bride

There was a maid this other day,
And she would needs go forth to play;
And as she walked she sithd and said,
I am afraid to die a mayd.
With that, behard a lad,
What talke this maiden had,
Whereof he was full glad,
And did not spare
To say, faire mayd, I pray,
Whether goe you to play?
Good sir, then did she say,
What do you care?

For I will, without faile,
Mayden, giue you Watkins ale;
Watkins ale, good sir, quoth she,
What is that I pray you tel me?

Tis sweeter farre then suger fine,
And pleasanter than muskadine;
And if you please, faire mayd, to stay
A little while, with me to play,
I will giue you the same,
Watkins ale cald by name,--
Or els I were to blame,
In truth, faire mayd.
Good sir, quoth she againe,
Yf you will take the paine,
I will it not refraine,
Nor be dismayd.

He took this mayden then aside,
And led her where she was not spyde,
And told her many a prety tale,
And gaue her well of Watkins ale.

Good sir, quoth she, in smiling sort,
What doe you call this prety sport?
Or what is this you do to me?
Tis called Watkins ale, quoth he,
Wherein, faire mayd, you may
Report another day,
When you go forth to play,
How you did speed.
Indeed, good sir, quoth she,
It is a prety glee,
And well it pleaseth me,
No doubt indeed.

Thus they sported and they playd,
This yong man and this prety mayd,
Vnder a banke whereas they lay,
Not long agoe this other day.

Where are the thieves?

People have seen them around
They have seen them on the rooftops
Walking around Paris
Pronouncing sentence at the courts
With powdered noses
Wearing ties or blue jeans
They have seen them in all the magazines' covers
Without anything else to say

Where are the thieves?
Where is the murderer?
Probably getting dirty
At the neighbour's patio
And what if it's them
And what if it's me
The one who plays this guitar
Or the one who sings this song
The one who sings this song

They have seen them kneeling,
Sitting or crouching,
Standing as they teach lessons
In all positions
Preaching at the churches
Or even giving concerts
They have seen them at every cocktail party
Distributing ministrations

Where are the thieves?
Where is the murderer?
Probably getting dirty
At the neighbour's patio
And what if it's them
And what if it's me
The one who plays this guitar
Or the one who sings this song
The one who sings this song

Wenn du alles satt hast, dir klein und hässlich vorkommst,
deine Augen voller Tränen sind –
glaub mir, ich trockne jede einzelne von ihnen.
Ich steh zu dir, wenn die Zeiten rauher werden und alle Freunde verschwunden sind.
Ich bin für dich wie eine Brücke über aufgewühlten Wassern –
versprochen!

Wenn du total am Ende bist, auf der Straße liegst,
mit Bangen an den Abend denkst –
ich werde dich trösten, für dich einstehen.
Und wenn es dann dunkel wird und dich der Schmerz umfängt,
bin ich für dich wie eine Brücke über aufgewühlten Wassern –
versprochen!

Lass einfach los, meine Silberfee, lass dich einfach treiben.
Deine Zeit ist gekommen, all deine Träume werden wahr, sieh nur, wie hell sie strahlen!
Wenn du einen Freund brauchst: ich bin in deiner Nähe
und heile deinen Kummer –
wie eine Brücke über aufgewühlten Wassern.
