All the Young women, where are they going?
Where are they going, day after day?
Carrying Flowers, beautiful flowers,
flowers for someone, far far away.
All the young women, silently walking,
children beside them, happy at play
Mothers and children, where are you going?
Where are you going, this beautiful day?
All the young women, where do they come from?
Why does the line grow longer each day?
Where are their husbands, and* where are their fathers?
Where are their brothers and lovers today?
All the young women, why are they crying?
Why are they crying, this beautiful day?
They cry for their husband,** their fathers and brothers
They cry for the future they bury today.
*Die Cuff links lassen das "and" aus.
**Die Cuff links singen "husbands".
Aber das rechtfertigt keine eigene Datei.
