The Band

I was lazing about in life, my love called me
To see the band go by singing of love things
My downtrodden people said goodbye to the pain
To see the band go by singing of love things
 
The serious man, who was counting money, stopped
The braggart, who was boasting, stopped
The girlfriend, who was counting the stars, stopped
To see, hear, and give way
 
The sad girl, who was silent, smiled
The sad rose, which was always closed, opened
And all the kids started raving
To see the band go by singing of love things
To see the band go by singing of love things
 
The weak old man forgot his tiredness and thought
That he was still young to go out on the terrace and danced
The ugly girl leaned out of the window
Thinking the band played for her
 
The merry march spread across the avenue and insisted
The full moon, which was always in hiding, appeared
My whole city got decorated
To see the band go by singing of love things
To see the band go by singing of love things
 
But to my disenchantment, what was sweet came to an end
All things went back to their places after the band went by
And each one in his corner, in each corner a pain
After the band went by singing of love things
 
Thanks!
