A song doesn’t feed you or give you a drink
A song doesn’t set our table.
A song is not made for eating
It’s joy that makes you sing!
If you’re hungry, do some work
The bigger eaters must work harder!
Let the song fly across the sky
The tune will never fade away.
Beauty can never be bottled
A song can never be turned into bread
But still you can’t live without
Singing and playing!
Let the song keep you warm in the cold
Let it give you strength
The song will feed your soul
Music will warm your heart.
A word can’t be eaten
A song can’t be drunk
But still I’ll say it again:
Without joy there’s only sadness!
Without music you don’t feel well
Without joy it’s all so dull
Beauty can’t be bottled
Beauty will live forever.
