Bound gently down
Over the ocean

The Cabaret of Theresienstadt

When all our dreams are over
Will then be part of now?
Ask me that tomorrow.
I will try to tell you how.

Muss ich, ohne Ziel,
Bleibt immer herein?
Es war einmal
Es wird einmal wieder sein.

Will once upon a time
Be what will be again?
Wait, until tomorrow
For we will find out, then.

Muss ich, ohne Ziel,
Bleibt immer herein?
Es war einmal
Es wird einmal wieder sein.

When we awake tomorrow
What do you think we’ll find?
That tomorrow is a place
If it cannot be a time.

Muss ich, ohne Ziel,
Bleibt immer herein?
Es war einmal
Es wird einmal wieder sein.

— Alexander Theroux

Summer is a-coming in—
Loudly sing, cuckoo!
Groweth seed and bloweth mead
And springeth the wood new.
Sing, cuckoo!

Ewe bleateth after lamb,
Loweth after calf cow,
Bullock starteth, buck farteth—
Merrily sing, cuckoo!
Cuckoo, cuckoo,
Well singest thou, cuckoo!
Cease thou never now.

Sing, cuckoo, now!

— Anonymous, 13th century
