Farewell Angelina
The bells on the crown
Are being stolen by bandits
I must follow the sound

The triangle tingles
And the music plays slow
But farewell Angelina
The night is on fire
And I must go

There's no use in talking
There's no need for blame
There is nothing to prove
Everything still is the same

A table stands empty
By the edge of the stream
But farewell Angelina
The sky is changing colours
And I must leave

The jacks and the queens
They forsake the courtyard
Fifty-two gypsies
Now file past the guard

In the space where the deuce
And the ace once ran wild
Farewell Angelina
The sky is folding
I'll see you after a while

See the cross-eyed pirates
Sit perched in the sun
Shooting tin cans
With a sawed off shot gun

And the corporals and the neighbours
Clap and cheer with each blast
Farewell Angelina
The sky is trembling
And I must leave fast

King Kong, little elves
And the rooftops, they dance
Valentino-type tangos
While the heroes clean hands

Shut the eyes of the dead
Not to embarrass anyone
Farewell Angelina
The sky is flooding over
And I must be gone

The camouflaged parrot
He flutters from fear
When something he doesn't know about
Suddenly appears

What cannot be imitated
Perfect must die
Farewell Angelina
The sky is flooding over
And I must go where it is dry

Machine guns are roaring
The puppets heave rocks
At misunderstood visions
And at the faces of clocks

Call me any name you like
I will never deny it
Farewell Angelina
The sky is erupting
And I must go where it is quiet
