Shoah (1985) soundtrack

Post by Killswitch » 22 Aug 2012 23:22

It goes:
"You, girl, don't you cry.
Don't be so sad.
For the dear summer is nearing...
and l'll return with it.
A mug of red wine,
a slice of roast,
that's what the girls give their soldiers.
When the soldiers march along."

I've heard it in some WWII docus and in Shoah [1985]

Want to listen to it.... name of the original song would be helpful...

Thanks.

Those are two popular German folk songs (and their English translation is not exactly accurate).
You, girl, don't you cry.
Don't be so sad.
For the dear summer is nearing...
and l'll return with it.
This is from "Drum, Mädchen, weine nicht". Original lyrics:

Drum, Mädchen, weine nicht,
sei nicht so traurig.
Wenn wieder Frühling ist,
kehr' ich ja wieder.

A mug of red wine, a slice of roast,
that's what the girls give their soldiers.
When the soldiers march along,
the girls open their doors and windows.
This is from "Wenn die Soldaten". Original lyrics:

Eine Flasche Rotwein und ein Stückchen Braten
schenken die Mädchen ihren Soldaten.
Wenn die Soldaten durch die Stadt marschieren,
öffnen die Mädchen die Fenster und die Türen.


Cheers,
Ivan
