I Heard It Through the Grapevine

Listen, listen, listen, how it flows
the river in front of your eyes with inertia
over life, over all that you perceive/understand
It has a road in front of it
Listen, listen, listen, how it flows
the river through life with the same inertia
whether you run, walk, sit, sleep or crawl
it is in full swing
 
Callous hands, there in the distance is the radiating sphere of the rising sun,
for years I have built a beach, sand-grain after sand-grain.
Some years remain, I won't even/yet see that finish
It is hard to sell a thought to those who don't speak this language.
Ah, who was the one I fed through Henricus Lettus1 anyway,
seeing how Estonians like to eat meatloaf2
Not related to the gender or name, I foreknew that you'd crow3
Like they say
if you're afraid of wolves don't go to the forest
 
Listen, listen, listen, how it flows
the river in front of your eyes with inertia
over life, over all that you perceive/understand
It has a road in front of it
Listen, listen, listen, how it flows
the river through life with the same inertia
whether you run, walk, sit, sleep or crawl
it is in full swing
 
I really thought that zeros on the bank account counted,
a big house by the sea, fast cars, wolfhounds4
Busy all night 'cause money never sleeps,
Ah, in this fundament there are cracks
Your house [is/,] Baba Yaga
Does one get life in a fairytale as by magic?
Can even one person see the invisible weight on my shoulders?
Will someone melt the ice?
Will someone extend the hand
when you sit alone, a pouch/wallet in your hand
holding it like a loser in a card game?
I ask ah
 
  • 1. the Latin name of a 13th century priest, missionary, historian; the author of "Livonian Chronicle of Henry" which describes the evangelization of the regions which are now part of Estonia and Latvia during the Northern Crusades
  • 2. literally, "tall boy"
  • 3. like a rooster... but the verb is also reminiscent of the word 'kirg': "passion", I have no idea what he means
  • 4. or German Sheperds
Ευχαριστώ!

The original title is a calque of the English expression. I have never heard it used.
