Dutch song Robert Long - Vanmorgen vloog ze nog
with lyrics, music, video and English translation songtext


picture garland guirlande symbol of dutch songs translated English translation

This morning she still flew
Free and unhindered, elegant, so high majestic
A dainty creature still, it was created to be floating
And not to die due to a pointless piece of lead
Shot from the rifle of some crude and stupid morons
All those soft feathers, shot to pieces, dead
This morning she still flew

Vanmorgen vloog ze nog
Zo onbelemmerd en gracieus en zo verheven
Zo’n sierlijk wezentje, het was geschapen om te zweven
Niet om te sterven door een zinloos stukje lood
Uit het geweer van een paar lompe idioten
Die zachte veertjes, stuk geschoten, dood
Vanmorgen vloog ze nog

It must feel wonderful
What
Be able to express your thoughts
Formulate, write down
That is delightful
I really envy you, please can I stay with you a short while
As far as I'm concerned, stay with me from now on
I promise, I will write my finest books for you now
And poems also
Can I stay here
Please
It must feel wonderful

Wat moet dat heerlijk zijn
Wat
Om te verwoorden wat je voelt
Te kunnen schrijven
Dat is ook heerlijk
O wat benijd ik u, mag ik nog even bij u blijven
Wat mij betreft blijft u bij mij vanaf vandaag
Ik zal de allermooiste boeken voor u schrijven
En ook gedichten
Mag ik blijven
Graag
Wat moet dat heerlijk zijn

This morning she still flew
Just like a seagull on the wind, all without moving
The wings both spread out wide
Rising above the human being
And then the bang and nothing else
No scream or cry
She's lying helpless now, the little legs are quivering
A dying seagull, shot and wounded, bird
This morning she still flew

Vanmorgen vloog ze nog
Zoals een meeuw soms op de wind, zonder bewegen
De vleugels wijdgespreid
Op eigen kracht de mens ontstegen
En dan een knal en verder niets
Niet eens een schreeuw
Daar ligt ze hulpeloos, nog trillend met haar poten
Stervende vogel, aangeschoten, meeuw
Vanmorgen vloog ze nog

He cannot without me
He always needs me, hardly noticed, day in and out
He wants me just around
Although he never would express that
It has to be this way, maybe it is God's will
Perhaps His order is to be your brother's shepherd
Be his caring nurse
Be his mother
It's our fate
He cannot without me

Hij kan niet zonder mij
Hij heeft me nodig, onopvallend, alle dagen
Hij wil me om zich heen
Al zou hij dat nooit aan me vragen
Het moet zo zijn, het is misschien de wil van God
En luidt de opdracht: wees voortaan uws broeders hoeder
Wees zijn verzorgster
Wees zijn moeder
't Is ons lot
Hij kan niet zonder mij

It must feel wonderful
This morning she still flew
He cannot without me

Wat moet dat heerlijk zijn
Vanmorgen vloog ze nog
Hij kan niet zonder mij
