I was once swimming on the surface
Swimming on the surface
And there I vanished

Never again my mother,
Never at all in all your lifetime,
Mix the bread dough with this water.
Never again my mother,
Never at all in all your lifetime,
Use the new homeplace of your daughter.

I was once swimming on the surface
Swimming on the surface
And there I vanished

Never again my father,
Never at all in all your lifetime,
Pull a fish out of this water.
Never again my father,
Never at all in all your lifetime,
Cast your net over the back of your daughter.

Wherever you see water flow
There my blood's flowing too.
Wherever you see fishes swim
There my soul's swimming too.
