Ein Bett im Kornfeld...

Sommerabend über blühendem Land,
schon seit Mittag stand ich am Strassenrand.
Bei jedem Wagen, der vorüber fuhr, hob ich den Daumen.
Auf einem Fahrrad kam da ein Mädchen her
und sie sagte: "Ich bedaure Dich sehr",
doch ich lachte und sprach: "Ich brauch keine weichen Daunen...

Ein Bett im Kornfeld, das ist immer frei.
Denn es ist Sommer und was ist schon dabei.
Die Grillen singen und es duftet nach Heu
wenn ich träume. Mmmh...
Ein Bett im Kornfeld zwischen Blumen und Stroh
und die Sterne leuchten mir sowieso.
Ein Bett im Kornfeld mach ich mir irgendwo,
ganz alleine...

Etwas später lag ihr Fahrrad im Gras
und so kam es, dass sie die Zeit vergass.
Mit der Gitarre hab ich ihr erzählt von meinen Leben.
Auf einmal rief sie: "Es ist höchste Zeit,
nun ist es dunkel und mein Weg ist noch weit."
Doch ich lachte und sprach: "Ich hab Dir noch viel zu geben...

Ein Bett im Kornfeld, das ist immer frei.
Denn es ist Sommer und was ist schon dabei.
Die Grillen singen und es duftet nach Heu
wenn wir träumen. Mmmh...
Ein Bett im Kornfeld zwischen Blumen und Stroh
und die Sterne leuchten uns sowieso.
Ein Bett im Kornfeld mach ich uns irgendwo,
ganz alleine...

(Jürgen Drews, 1976)

    This is such a breathtaking view of the meadow and the sky. I love the soft view of the sun as it is going down. Every color of the rainbow is reflected in this photo. The sky-blue pinks of the evening sky are always intriguing. I love the poem you have shared, along with its interpretation. It's the first time I've ever heard Jurgen Drew. What a fabulous voice!

    Luv ya bunches!
    Sweet Caroline

    Stop,look and listen!
    Landscape admires the dark richness and succulence.
    Unfortunately, me difficult to translate the text.

      The song was in 1976 and the following years the absolut summer hit in Germany.
      The singer Jürgen Drews was the darling of most girls between 8 and 80 :-)))
      I’ve tried to translate the text in English.
      I must split the text, because it are too much characters for one comment.

        Summer evening in a blossoming land,
        already since midday I stood in the road edge.
        With every car which passed by, I lifted the thumb.
        On a bicycle came a girl along and she said: “I regret you very much”.
        However, I laughed and spoke: “I don’t need soft eiderdowns...
        A bed in the grain field is always free,
        because it is summer and it does no matter.
        The crickets sing and it smells of hay when I dream.
        Mmmh...
        A bed in the grain field between flowers and straw
        and the stars shine to me anyway.
        A bed in the grain field somewhere I do for me, quite alone...

        A little later her bicycle was lying in the grass
        and so it came, that she forgot the time.
        With the guitar I have told her about my life.
        Suddenly she shouted: “It is the highest time,
        now it is dark and my way is still long."
        However, I laughed and spoke: “I still have to give you so much...
        A bed in the grain field is always free,
        because it is summer and it does no matter.
        The crickets sing and it smells of hay when we dream.
        Mmmh...
        A bed in the grain field between flowers and straw
        and the stars shine to us anyway.
        A bed in the grain field somewhere I do for us, quite alone...

          Oh, Manfred, thanks!
          I've coped with translation of German language too, only it was required to more time.
          The text was pleasant to me. A boyish voice of the executor very much a high-pitch tone. Sexy-boy. :-)))
          But all it to the first frosts. What then? :-D
          We too have an old romantic song:

          I will long drive a bicycle.
          In deaf meadows it I will stop.
          I only want, that took a bouquet
          That girl whom I love...
          :-))

      The song acts from a girl on a bicycle and a bed in a corn field! If in a lyrics a girl by bicycle acts the main character, it can be only fantastic! :o)))
      Have a nice week ahead, dear Lara!
