The scandal is currently sufficient
May with the sun them on you
that supplements expensive you;
And the pure light with you
to lead your house in the kind.
Anyone recognize the original song?
- The song came from an album released in 1968 so there's an age bias in this challenge.
- The album has been reissued on CD -- I was pleased.
- I believe the lyrics were actually borrowed from a traditional folk song.
- Somewhere along the line the translation acquired an extra line (and some extra concepts!) The original verse was four lines long.
- The original lyrics were comprehensible, although I've got to admit you could probably substitute the translated version into the song and few people would notice.
