Marta Says

Eugen Mondbasis

Take a walk on the river side
You don’t even need to squeeze a smile
Birds get no applause for the songs they sing
They care the least about the state you’re in

Marta says I’m wrong – money will be there and I will be gone

When someone tries to greet you, tell him he’s a jerk
Hide your hands in your pocket, duck your head down low

Marta says I’m wrong – money will be there and I will be gone

Time has never been too slow and money’s always short
But you may find a fiver on the walk

Marta, Marta says I’m wrong

Next time you feel screwed, deprived of your last shirt
remember Marta’s words

Marta says I’m wrong – money will be there and I will be gone
Marta, Marta says I’m wrong
