If your friend now isnít friend, If is broken your brotherhood, If you now canít understand Is he bad man or good You take him in the mountains, Not let him be alone part. There you will be with him as twins, And youíll see all his heart... If this guy only seemed so deep But at once he became tired, After first upon glacier trip He immediately cried, That means alien he and wrong, No sense scold, just get him away, For such men doesnít sing a song, For such men here no way... If he didnít scream but was stiff, Went, despising the snow cold And when you did fall from the cliff, He did moan, but hold, If he did climb with you on shelf As at battlefield, touched and glad, It means now, as to yourself, Be relied on this lad.
