1948 (ALONE AGAIN NATURALLY) Gerard Cox (The Netherlands) Buiten huilt de wind om 't huis Maar de kachel staat te snorren op vier Er hangt een lapje voor de brievenbus En in de tochtigste kieren zit papier Wij waren heel erg arm en niemand hield van ons Maar we hadden thee en nog geen tv Maar wel radio en lange vingers We gingen nog in bad, haartjes nat Nog even op, totdat vader zei: "Vooruit, naar bed" Dan kregen we een kruik mee Gezichten op 't behang Maar niet echt van binnen bang Toen was geluk heel gewoon Buiten huilt de wind om 't huis Maar moeder breit een warme sjaal En het ganzebord op tafel stond er de volgende moregen nog helemaal Ook gingen wij naar 't bos Daar zijn we toen verdwaald Van de wag geraakt, carriere gemaakt Heel die pannekoekensmaak vergeten En Nederland herrees onder Drees Fanny Blankers Koen die won vier maal goud in Londen Als je jokte was dat zonde De legpuzzle kwam klaar In het derde vredesjaar Toen was geluk heel gewoon Die schooltas bleek het eerste teken Dat de zaak wal was bekeken Voor zover je zonder plechtsbesef Je leven leed, je leven leed Buiten huilt de wind om 't huis Maar binnen stond de kolenkit paraat En de stoep waarop geknikkerd werd Was het belangrijste stukje van de straat En Nederland was groot en niemand ging nog dood En gezelligheid kende nauw'lijks tijd Bij waxinelichtjes van Verkade refr. ***** ALONE AGAIN (NATURALLY) (Lyrics & Music : Raymond O'Sullivan) Gilbert O'Sullivan - 1972 In a little while from now If I'm not feeling any less sour I promise myself to treat myself And visit a nearby tower And climbing to the top will throw myself off In an effort to make it clear to whoever What it's like when you're shattered Left standing in the lurch at a church Where people saying : "My God, that's tough" "She stood him up" "No point in us remaining" "We may as well go home" As I did on my own Alone again, naturally To think that only yesterday I was cheerful, bright and gay Looking forward to who wouldn't do The role I was about to play ? But as if to knock me down Reality came around And without so much as a mere touch Cut me into little pieces Leaving me to doubt Talk about God in His mercy Who if He really does exist Why did He desert me ? In my hour of need I truly am indeed Alone again, naturally It seems to me that there are more hearts Broken in the world that can't be mended Left unattended What do we do ? What do we do ? Alone again, naturally Looking back over the years And whatever else that appears I remember I cried when my father died Never wishing to hide the tears And at sixty-five years old My mother, God rest her soul Couldn't understand why the only man She had ever loved had been taken Leaving her to start with a heart so badly broken Despite encouragement from me No words were ever spoken And when she passed away I cried and cried all day Alone again, naturally (2x)
