Robert Long & Unit Gloria - The last seven days
Tekst: Karel Hille / Muziek: John Möring
(1969)






On the first of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
“Give me back all the animals and birds
They will be spoiled like all the human beings”



We heard the people cry
We heard the people sigh
But still they didn’t pray
Then came the other day



On the second of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
“Give me back all the flowers and the trees
You don’t deserve their beauty and their shelter”



On the third of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
“Put out all the stars and the moon
You don’t deserve a compass in your darkness”



We heard the people cry
We heard the people sigh
But still they didn’t pray
Then came the other day



On the fourth of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
“Give me back my last friends of this world
For they will die like all those terrible traitors”



On the fifth of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
”Give me back the wonderful sun
You don’t deserve the light that’s in your blind eyes”



We heard the people cry
We heard the people sigh
But still they didn’t pray
Then came the other day



On the sixth of the last seven days
He saw his world and said
“Now burn down this people and this world
They wouldn’t hear my word upon the mountain”



And then the last day appeared
The world was wasted and teared
He saw his world and
Cried
