Pierre Bensusan Lyrics

(lyrics: Philippe Val, English adaptation: Mike Vogel, music: Pierre Bensusan)

Our time has come
Walking together through town
Our side has won
Freedom has come around
Justice prevails
Though she may be slender and frail.

Springtime for all
Freedom dancing in the street
A sight to behold
Turn your eyes to greet
Gather close around
Our lost beauty has been found

In the streets of Prague
Simple, unadorned
Quietly agog
Youthful and unscorned
Now back from far off
Though she's brought so little home
Modestly alone
Is what we offer our betrothed

Here we stand
History at our feet
Nothing to eat
From the west, just a waving hand
By what turn of fate
Are we still here in the end
The red stain
On stage is only there to pretend

Our time has come
Walking together through town
Our side has won
Freedom has come around
Justice prevails
Though she may be slender and frail

If tomorrow she's still
Shivering and unfed
Amorous she'll steal away
Loving but unloved
If in the morning
She's heard humming some notes
We'll have to compose
The melody to chase her sorrow

Here we are
Striving, thirsting for delight
From the train, Mozart
Is ready to alight
Deep in his valise
A daring opera to be found
Elsewhere unreleased
Here it has already made the rounds

Here we stand
With history at our feet ...


C. & P. 1993, Dadgad Music (Sacem, France)
