Björk - It’s oh so quiet
Tekst en muziek: Hans Lang en Erich Meder / Vertaling: Bert Reisfeld
(1995)






Shhh
Shhh



It’s oh so quiet
Shhh, shhh
It’s oh so still
Shhh, shhh
You’re all alone
Shhh, shhh
And so peaceful until



You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You’ve never been so nuts about a guy
You wanna laugh, you wanna cry
You cross your heart and hope to die
Till it’s over and then



Shhh, shhh
It’s nice and quiet
Shhh, shhh
But soon again
Shhh, shhh
Starts another big riot



You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
So, what’s the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love



It’s oh so quiet
It’s oh so still
You’re all alone
And so peaceful until



You ring the bell
Bim bam
You shout and you yell
Hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell
You almost have a fit
This guy is ‘gorge’ and I got hit
There’s no mistake: “This is it”



Till it’s over and then
It’s nice and quiet
Shhh, shhh
But soon again
Shhh, shhh
Starts another big riot



You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom
So, what’s the use
Wow bam
Of falling in love



The sky caves in
The devil cuts loose
You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse, ahhh
When you’ve fallen in love



Ssshhhhhh
