How time goes by – music from Hubert von Goisern to start the week

August 16, 2010

My five weeks in Europe went by in no time. Amazing. Where has it gone?

I start this week in a contemplative mood (“simmeliere” as we say in the Rhineland).

The following song of Hubert von Goisern, one of my favourite poets from the Alps, seems to be just the right stuff.

Lyrics H. v. Goisern / W. Staribacher

Heast as nit
wia die Zeit vergeht
Huidiei jodleiri Huidiridi

Gestern nu’
ham d’Leut ganz anders g’redt
Huidiei jodleiridldüeiouri

Die Jungen san alt wordn
und die Altn san g’storbn
Duliei, Jodleiridldudieiouri

Und gestern is’ heit word’n
und heit is’ båld morg’n
Huidiei jodleiri huidiridi

Heast as nit
Heast as nit
Huideridiri
Hollareiridiridldoueio hållouri

Heast as nit, wia die Zeit vergeht
Heast as nit, wia die Zeit vergeht …

Have a good start into the week.
Cheers mate.
