The Two Coins

The Two Coins ballad

Photo by Dirigentens

When the two coins are placed on your eyes,
That must be the end of your smiles,
That shall be the last breath in your life,
That is the time when a goat needs no knife.

When the deep sleep appears,
Not even yawn interferes.
There you go alone,
And you’ll rest there along.

When the TVs and Radios get paused in your house
And when late is included in your goose
When widowing shall begin in vain,
And the orphans shall also live in vain.
