[MORITZ]
Awful sweet to be a little butterfly
Just wingin' over things and nothing deep inside
Nothing going, going wild in you, you know
You're slowing by the riverside or floatin' high and blue
Or maybe cool to be a little summer wind
Fly once through everything and then away again
With the taste of dust in your mouth all day
But no need to know like sadness
You just sail away 'cause you know

I don't do sadness
Not even a little bit
Just don't need it in my life
Don't want any part of it
I don't do sadness
Hey, I've done my time
Looking back on it all
Man, it blows my mind
I don't do sadness

So been there
Don't do sadness
Just don't care

[ILSE]
Moritz Stiefel?

[MORITZ]
Ilse? You frightened me.

[ILSE]
What are you looking for?

[MORITZ]
If only I knew.

[ILSE]
Then what's the use of looking? I'm on the way home. Want to come?

[MORITZ]
I don't know.

[ILSE]
You remember how we used to run back to my house and play pirates? Wendla Bergmann, Melchior Gabor, you, and I.

[ILSE]
Spring and summer every other day
Blue wind gets so sad
Blowin’ through the thick corn
Through the bales of hay
Through the open books on the grass
Spring and summer

Sure, when it’s autumn
Wind always wants to
Creep up and haunt you
Whistlin’ it’s got you
With its heartache, with its sorrow
Winter wind sings and it cries

Spring and summer every other day
Blue wind gets so pained
Blowin’ through the thick corn
Through the bales of hay
Through the sudden drift of the rain
Spring and summer

[MORITZ]
Actually, I'd better go.

[ILSE]
Walk as far as my house with me.

[MORITZ]
I wish I could.

[ILSE]
Then why don't you?

[MORITZ]
Eighty lines of Virgil, sixteen equations, a paper on the Habsburgs.

So maybe I should be some kind of laundry line
Hang their things on me and I will swing 'em dry
You just wave in the sun through the afternoon and then see
They come to set you free
Beneath the rising moon
'Cause you know

[BOTH]
Spring and summer every other day
[I don't do sadness]
Blue wind gets so lost
[Not even a little bit]
Blowin’ through the thick corn
[Just don't need it in my life]
Through the bales of hay
[Don't want any part of it]

Spring and summer every other day
[I don't do sadness]
Blue wind gets so lost
[Hey, I've done my time, looking back on it all]
Blowin’ through the thick corn
[Man, it blows my mind]
Through the bales of hay
[I don't do sadness]
Through the wandering clouds of the dust
[So been there, don't do sadness]
Spring and summer
[Just don't care]
