Farväl till släkt och vänner (Englisch Übersetzung)

Englisch Übersetzung

Goodbye to relatives and friends

If you are the Chairman of the Central bank you can
Speculate away billions
And let the average person give money
When it is deficient in the state
But deduct for the whisky
For the end of the year party at the bank
So percieved in the media
Like a real gangster.
 
If you are the Minister you con fly
First class and eat lobster
And wallow at a luxury hotel
Is there no one who condemns you
But you are clumsy enough
To get caught at the candy machine
When you shop with credit cards
Which actually belong to the state
 
So it is farewell to relatives and friends
And the others you know
For such is the moral
In the complaints of ordinary life
If you cheat it should be big time
We can accept it
But if you wheel and deal with small items
You will be ashamed.
 
If you abuse your wife
And oppress your youngsters
And drink up your wages
So that your neighbor will choose to look the other way
But if you don't look after
That lawn is trimmed
Then hell breaks loose;
So the neighbor becomes angry.
 
(REPEAT CHORUS)
So it is farewell to relatives and friends
And the others you know
For such is the moral
In the complaints of ordinary life
If you cheat it should be big time
We can accept it
But if you wheel and deal with small items
You will be ashamed
