English version
Janos Ber from the NorthYannos Ber who comes from the North
can’t stand the barbed wire.Cannot stand the barbed wire.
He takes heart, takes wingHe takes heart he takes wing,
runs through the villages of the valley.He runs through the villages of the valley.
Ma’am, give me a piece of breadGood lady, give me a piece of bread.
and clothes to change into –Give me some clothes to change.
I have a long way to gol have to go on a long journey.
and lakes to fly across.And over lakes to fly.
Wherever he goes or stopsWherever he goes, wherever he stops
fear and terror strikeTerror and fear beat their wings,
and a cry, a terrible cry:And a terrible voice is heard.
Hide from the fugitive!"Hide from the fugitive."
Christians, I’m no murderer,Christians, I am no murderer.
no beast come to eat you.No wild animal to eat you
I left the prisonI have escaped from prison
to go back to my home.To go back to my home.
Ah, what deathly lonelinessAh! What solitude of death
in this land of Bertolt Brecht!In this country of Bertolt Brecht!
They hand Janos over to the S.S.Yannos is handed over to the SS
They’re taking him, now, to be killed.They take him now for execution.
