A time to be ripping
A time to be sowing
the green leaves of summer
Are calling me home
It was good to be yond them
In the season of plenty
When the calfs were jumping
As high as the sky
A time just for planting
A time just for plowing
A time to be courting
A girl of your own
It was good to be yond them

The moment of birth
It was good to be yond them
To be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer
Are calling me home.

And the time just for ploughing
A time to be courting
Courting a girl of your own
Was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
And to stand by your wife
At the moment of birth, wo...

It was so good to be young then
To be close to the earth
Now the green leaves of summer
Are calling me home

  • АНТИИСТОРИЧЕСКАЯ БИОГРАФИЯ И ДИСГАРМОНИЧНАЯ ЖИЗНЬ

    В сети стали появляться материалы, которые раньше нельзя было прочитать и в спецхране. И это хорошо! О выпускнике МВТУ Альфреде Розенберге.
