Liedtext

Soldier, oh soldier                                          Soldat, oh Soldat

what are you doing abroad?                           was machst du in der Fremde?

Soldier, oh soldier                                         Soldat, oh Soldat

what are you looking for?                              was suchst du?

Maybe you lost your young life.                      Vielleicht verlierst du dein junges

                                                                       Leben.

The guns are shooting,                                 Die Gewehre schießen

the guys are humming.                                 Die Kerle summen

Attention soldier, attention!                           Achtung Soldat, Achtung!

Maybe you exchange life for fight.                 Vielleicht tauschst du das Leben

                                                                        gegen den Kampf. 

 

Soldier, oh soldier

what are you doing abroad?

Soldier, oh soldier

what are you looking for?

Maybe you lost your young life.

Your feet are burning,                                Deine Füße brennen

your hands are trembling.                           deine Hände zittern

Attention soldier, attention!

Maybe you exchange life for fight. 

 

Hear the weeping wind                              Höre den weinenden Wind

and it sounds:                                          und er singt:

the world turns around                              die Welt dreht sich

the world turns around                              die Welt dreht sich

in a same old circle game.                         in demselben Kreisspiel 

 

Your wife is waiting,                                 Deine Frau wartet

your kids are growing.                              deine Kinder wachsen

Attention soldier, attention!

Maybe you exchange life for fight. 

 

Hear the weeping wind

and it sounds:

the world turns around 

the world turns around

in a same old circle game.

 

Fly, fly in the sky,                                 Fliege, fliege in den Himmel

white dove!                                         weiße Taube.
