Come On People


Hey come on people, let me take your hands and we will walk
Together in the sun through woods and fields, nobody needs to talk
About the bloody shit which now began to take this place
With politics 'bout neutron-bombs and war-industrial race
And all the needless systems needless systems breeded out
Which never stop to pass the buck to pour it on the crowd
Sun and raindrops can't create a rainbow, it needs the colours of your life
And with the power of your smile
And with the teardrops in your eyes
And with the love your mother raised deep in your heart
You can't go wrong
To tell the world what's going on
To throw your colours out for everyone
Come on people, feel the music, get up, move your bones
Let off yourself like JANIS did, or JAGGER from the STONES
Come on people, sing your songs against the walls of hate
We're not the first to do so, but we are not too late
To take a chance to stop all silly fuss
Become aware this world was made for us
Somebody gave us this whole world and taught us to walk tall
To seize the wonders, seize the beautiness, to be a part of it all
Your eyes can see the flowers, your face can feel the sun
Nobody should be timid to sing and dance with everyone
Have you ever heard us telling lies to you in one of our songs?
We never thought 'bout misguiding you or do you wrong
But sometimes it is hard for everyone to carry on
Repressing system's servants always rule the people strong
But if we take each other's hand to fight against the strife
We'll show the system's servants that they waste their time of life
Let's take the chance to stop all silly fuss
Become aware, this world was made for us

Sun and raindrops can't create a rainbow
It needs the colours of your life
And with the power of your smile
And with the teardrops in your eyes
And with the love your mother raised deep in your heart
YOU can't go wrong...

 


Merry-Go-Round

Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Human beings fading out
You're leaving town, you'll touch the sky
Glide upon ways you never tried
Over park and pale, over hill and vale
Framed by beds of violets growing around
We like to sing this lovely song to make you strong
We like this magic sound - roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Eyes are drawn to lights and satins
We're fond of singing, we'll train the flea
It's your turn, turn the key
Live the life of clowns beyond all worldly bounds
Our sacred cart is rumbling along the clouds
We like to sing this lovely song to make you strong
We like this magic sound - roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Sparkling agates, peacock feathers
Coloured animals, they won't escape
Lovely creatures of human shape
Magical harps and chimes, the odor of Holy crimes
A giant world that makes us all bewitched
We like to sing this magic song to make you strong
We like this magic sound - roll up for the Merry-Go-Round
Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round, roll up, roll up
Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round, roll up, roll up
Roll up for the Merry-Go-Round...

 

A.C.Y.M.

Rock'n Roll whips my soul, wanton cries take me high

Last night I turned my radio on to get something to turn me on, but I was shocked
I heard those dolled-up guys again tellin' me to be a NAVY-fan, my brain got blocked
What do they think how dull I am to buy their bosh 'bout A.C.Y.M.
To waste my time as a NAVY-draftee, disclaiming my burning yen to be free
Wake up, we are the VILLAGE PEOPLE and our village is on fire
BIG BROTHER with his greed for money is killing our real desire
Rock'n Roll whips my soul, wanton cries take me high
The ROCK became a business the business became a mess with graft and cheatin' play
Computer-composed disco-sounds make people jump like fools around, make money-sharpers gay
Their silly hits they sound like marching and when I see that singing ARMY-guy
I wonder what they try to fight for and why this trash can make someone high
Wake up, we are the VILLAGE PEOPLE and our village is on fire
BIG BROTHER with his greed for money is killing our real desire
I am tired of this rubbish, let me out of here, I don't need no life-instructions when I drown in beer
I want to feel music, I want to love people, I want to hear HENDRIX again
I want satisfaction, I need body-action, JIM's message wasn't in vain
And when this song is over, you'll gladly know at last
Some chap from a village Rock-group is living in the past
When music was reality and power for a good few
And groups didn't need no industry to take their life to
YOU...

 

COKE-Train

When the devil took this world it was a hot dog-day down FRISCO-BAY, and no one cared
And the devil stroke a pact to sell his sweat to everyone suffering from thirst, and no one scared
There is a freighttrain bound for China
1000.000.000 cans of COKE
The U.S.A. sell them to China
The Western Blessings for the Chinese folk
And the devil laughed when the great leader died in the land of the Yellow Sons
'Cos he knew this was his greatest chance to close a cheatin' deal, and he knocked down
Let's make another revolution
The last one took place more than 10 years ago
People in China are sick of their red books
Show them how things will go better with COKE...
America is well experienced in dropping goods down in Far East
America became the foremost in every hoax, to say the last
There is a freighttrain bound for China
1000.000.000 cans of COKE
The U.S.A. sell them to China
The Western Blessings for the Chinese folk
America is well, America is well, America is well...
America is well experienced in dropping goods down in Far East
America became the foremost in every hoax, to say the least
TO SAY THE LEAST!

 

May Day

Around me restlessness waits, boring me
No face but brainless laughter (ha-ha-ha)
Purses they believe in in their hands, join the ranks
Bursting purses keep them alive
Greedy monsters spread out their giant wings
Catching all that seems to be worth-while
Managers rule the mind, a bad disease, a masterpiece
Unsuspecting, what they do to you
Vacant eyes of children gazing at walls of stone
Longing for coloured meadows, trees
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
Where is the place to end this race
To rebuild new ways of life
What about our heart and mind
We need them badly
May Day, splendid colours fill the air
Rotten flowers start to grow again
May Day, fantastic way, unmasks life, what's it like
Comes sooner than you think today
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
We've got to spend upon the children all, all we can feel and we know
Around me restlessness waits, boring me
No face but brainless laughter (ha-ha-ha)
Managers rule the mind, a bad disease, a masterpiece
Unsuspecting, what they do to you
Look at the vacant eyes, children's eyes, eyes of stone
Dreaming of coloured shows and clowns
May Day, fantastic way, unmasks life, what's it like
Comes sooner than you think today
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
Be aware of May Day, the day, everything will be changed
Be aware of May Day, the world will be rearranged
Where is the place to end this race
To rebuild new ways of life
What about our heart and mind...?
WE NEED THEM BADLY
