Where Do The Children Play?

Die­ser Tage dach­te ich so beim Radio­hö­ren: Merk­wür­dig, dass ich seit Kriegs­be­ginn noch gar nichts von Cat Ste­vens ali­as Yus­uf Islam gehört habe. Nicht einen Song. Musikredakteur:innen von heu­te ken­nen den wahr­schein­lich nicht mehr. Tren­det ja nir­gend­wo, ist nicht mal bei Tik-Tok.

Okay, dann woll’n wa mal…

Ich habe drei Sachen raus­ge­sucht, die ich pas­send fin­de – so pas­send irgend­et­was in Kriegs­zei­ten sein kann. Kann sein, dass ich eine klei­ne Serie draus mache. Wir wer­den sehen bzw. hören.

Natür­lich fängt das jetzt mit Peace Train an. Da habe ich bei YT eine schö­ne fri­sche Ver­si­on gefun­den. Sogar mit dem Alt­meis­ter hims­elf.[1]Aus irgend­ei­nem Grund star­ten die Vide­os nicht immer am Anfang. Ich habe kei­nen Weg gefun­den, das zu ändern, sor­ry. Ein­fach eben gera­de sel­ber gera­de den Sli­der nach links schie­ben.

Peace Train

Now I've been happy lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Oh I've been smiling lately
Dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be
Some day it's going to come

'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides the Peace Train
Oh Peace Train take this country
Come take me home again

Now I've been smiling lately
Thinking about the good things to come
And I believe it could be
Something good has begun

Oh Peace Train sounding louder
Reside on the Peace Train
Come on the Peace Train

Yeah Peace Train Holy Roller
Would everyone jump up on the Peace Train
Come on the Peace Train

Get your bags together
Come bring your good friends too
Our cause is getting nearer
It soon will be with you

And come and join the living
It's not so far from you
And it's getting nearer
Soon it will all be true

Oh Peace Train sounding louder
Reside on the Peace Train
Come on now Peace Train, Peace Train

Now I've been crying lately
Thinking about the world as it is
Why must we go on hating
Why can't we live in bliss

'Cause out on the edge of darkness
There rides the Peace Train
Oh Peace Train take this country
Come take me home again

Oh Peace Train sounding louder
Reside on the Peace Train
Come on the Peace Train

Yes Peace Train Holy Roller
Would everyone jump up on the Peace Train
Come on, come on, come on

Yes come on Peace Train yea
This is the Peace Train
Come on the Peace Train
Oh Peace Train

Where Do The Children Play?

Well I think it's fine, building jumbo planes
Or taking a ride on a cosmic train
Switch on summer from a slot machine
Yes, get what you want to if you want, 'cause you can get anything

I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?


Well you roll on roads over fresh green grass
For your lorry loads pumping petrol gas
And you make them long, and you make them tough
But they just go on and on, and it seems that you can't get off

Oh, I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?

Well you've cracked the sky, scrapers fill the air
But will you keep on building higher
'Til there's no more room up there?
Will you make us laugh, will you make us cry?
Will you tell us when to live, will you tell us when to die?


I know we've come a long way
We're changing day to day
But tell me, where do the children play?

Last but not least noch Sad Lisa.

Wer jetzt noch nicht Pipi in den Augen hat – damit krie­ge ich euch! 🙂

Und dies ist der Text:

Sad Lisa

She hangs her head and cries in my shirt
She must be hurt very badly
Tell me what's making you sad, Li?
Open your door
Don't hide in the dark
You're lost in the dark
You can trust me
'Cause you know that's how it must be

Lisa, Lisa
Sad Lisa, Lisa


Her eyes like windows tricklin' rain
Upon her pain getting deeper
Though my love wants to relieve her
She walks alone from wall to wall
Lost in her hall
She can't hear me
Though I know she likes to be near me
Lisa, Lisa
Sad Lisa, Lisa

She sits in a corner by the door
There must be more I can tell her
If she really wants me to help her
I'll do what I can to show her the way
And maybe one day I will free her
Though I know no one can see her
Lisa, Lisa
Sad Lisa, Lisa

Und falls ich das nicht fort­füh­ren muss, weil über­ra­schend der Frie­den aus­bricht, mir soll’s recht sein.
