It is a beautiful world
When you look at it with dreamy eyes
But when tears blind you
you welcome cloudy skies
When your soul is cracked many times over
and you no longer believe
in the luck of four-leaved clover
When your heart has been broken
like glass into these many shards
well, then maybe
you need a kick n the ars
Of course, that is easier said than done
I wouldn't let anyone
do that to me...
and I myself am not an acrobat
So how to handle all that?
You just put one foot in front of the other
and stumble along
all the while humming
to the tune of Armstrong's song.
Happy New Year to you and to all
may soft clouds catch you when you fall.
