I have heard the sound of your call
I have chosen your path
I joined your caravan
We called you the nightingale

I remember how excited we were
The best of life lay ahead for us
We marched on wrapped in your song
For you I gave my five-year-old son

I felt him behind me
I felt him helping me
Every one of us will go to paradise
He sang to the soldiers day and night
We called him the nightingale
Get ready, get ready, get ready

    As untoned steams/Were angels around me/As untoned steams/Became angels around me/
    As untoned steams/Crushed these angels around me/As untoned steams/Were like angels around me

    General CommentThe Nightingale

    I have heard the sound of your call
    I have chosen your path
    I joined your caravan
    We called you the Nightingale
    I remember how excited we were
    The best of life lay ahead for us
    We marched on wrapped in your song
    For you I gave my five–year–old son
    I felt him behind me
    I felt him helping me
    Every one of us will go to paradise
    He sang to the soldiers day and night
    We called him the Nightingale
    Get ready, get ready, get ready
    Has untold stings where angels around me
    Has untold the stings became angels around me
    Has untold stings crashed the vans angels around me
    Has untold stings we’re like angels around me
