"Una Paloma Blanca" as written by and Hans Bouwens....
When the sun shines on the mountains
And the night is on the run
It's a new day, it's a new way
And I fly up to the sun

I can feel the morning sunlight
I can smell the new-born hay
I can hear God's voices calling
From my golden sky-light way

Una paloma blanca
I'm just a bird in the sky
Una paloma blanca
Over the mountain I fly
No one can take my freedom away

Once I had my share of losing
Once they locked me on a chain
Yes, they tried to break my power
Oh, I still can feel the pain

Una paloma blanca
I'm just a bird in the sky
Una paloma blanca
Over the mountain I fly
No one can take my freedom away

    General CommentA classic piece of Europop. I prefer the Nina and Mike version, though, because I don't know enough German to understand the lyrics (which presumably are as dippy as the English version...)

    General CommentBack when this first came out, it was all over the radio. So where is George Baker today? (He's still active and touring tiny clubs in Europe.)
    Anyway, this song is about a guy who is free-wheeling and looking. He's like "screw the rules, I'm going to be carefree."
    What the lyrics don't tell you is that a female voice repeats the first verse and chorus at the end. Therefore they're also saying women shouldn't care and just be free as well.
