Not everyone could get into our tight group,
And one day - I damn the date -
I took him with me and said:
"Heís with me boys, pour for him!"
He drank like everyone else and acted like he was glad,
While we - we accepted him like a brother...
But he sold everyone out the next day, -
I was mistaken - forgive me, boys!
I donít remember the judge - it was unbearable,
Later the barracks, cold as a grave, -
It seemed to me that all around was an endless night,
Especially since it really was like that.
Nonetheless, Iím saving the last of my strength, -
He thinks that thereís no coming back from here,
He buried us all too early, -
Heís mistaken - believe me, boys!
And the day will come - when thereís no night for a year, -
All I ask, is that when itís payback time:
"Since it was I who brought him then -
Give him to me, boys!.."
