Sally and me, sand dunes and sea
Gonna make it, gonna do it alright
(in safe seclusion)
She is the designated driver
I'd be folish if I put up a fight
(avoiding collision)
Her mum and dad are happy and old,
they once swam naked at night
(with no delusions)
On leaving the water, her father declared 'I mean it, let's do it! Let's get out tonight!'
(time to make decisions)

Sally is sure, she's pure carnivore
Gonna do it, gonna make it on time
(with determination)
She won't be overcome by the moment,
with genetics and cosmetics on her side
(it's her conviction)
I thought about a possible future,
the good life in the midnight sun
(utopia vision)
Take nothing for granted her father once told me
Believe me, I've been there, I've learnt how to run
(mit keine illusion)

Sally and me, sand dunes and sea
Gonna do it, gonna make it on time
(in safe seclusion)
She is the designated driver,
I'd be foolish to put up a fight
(avoiding collision)
Her mum and dad are happy and old,
they once swam naked at night
(with no delusions)
On leaving the water, her father declared
'I mean it, let's do it! let's get out tonight!'

(I don't know, if you were there
when they marched into the square.
We sped out of town
but when I looked back
I saw a soldier grab dad's arm.
Now we're miles away
and some are bound to fail
but Sally you and me are safe from harm)

Sally and me, a community
Gonna do it, gonna make it alright
(in safe seclusion)
There is no designated future,
gonna shape it however we like
(avoiding collusion)
One day we will be, happy and old
And we will swim naked at night
(with no division)
Then we'll let the wind dry us off
and sleep in the sand - we made it alright!
(ausland mission)
