Going out in the world to save our planet…

11. Mai 2011

Haltet mich für verrückt, kitschig, sentimental oder was auch immer, aber seit gerade weiß ich für wen ich am Samstag beim Eurovision Song Contest voten werde: Paradise Oskar und seinen Song „Da da dam“. Denn ich glaube, irgendwann war ich auch mal so wie der neunjährige Peter, den er in seinem Lied beschreibt.

Lyrics:

Peter is smart,
he knows each European country by heart.
He likes to sit under an apple tree on his yard
and wait for an apple to fall.

When Peter is nine
his teacher tells him that this planet is dying,
that someone needs to put an end to it all
and so when Peter comes home
he tells his mom:

I’m going out in the world
to save our planet.
And I ain’t coming back
until she’s saved.
I’ll walk my way to see
the King and parliament.
If they don’t help
I’ll do it by myself.
I don’t wanna be
Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da

Peter is young,
he tries to talk
but no one listens to him.
Everybody’s busy living and dying,
not thinking about what they’re doing.

But look at the boy who
went out in the world
to save our planet.
And he ain’t coming back
until she’s saved.
He walked his way to see
the King and parliament.
But they all turned their heads
and walked away
singin‘
Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da
Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da

And now I’m going out in the world
to save our planet.
And I ain’t coming back
until she’s saved.
I’m walking in the footsteps
that young Peter made.
And everybody is welcome to join,
and sing with me:
Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da
Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da

Da da dam, da da dam
da da da da da da da da dam
