Bilbao-Song Songtext Übersetzung

Bill's beer hall in Bilbao, Bilbao, Bilbao,
Was the most fantastic place I'd ever known.
For just a dollar you'd get all you wanted,
All you wanted, all you wanted
Of whatever kind of joy you called your own.

But if you had been around to join the fun
Well I don't know if you'd've liked what you'd have seen. (you might not like)
The stools at the bar were damp with rye.
On the dance floor the grass grew high,
Through the roof the moon was shining green,
And the music really gave you some return on what you paid.
Hey Joe, play that old song they always played.


That ol' Bilbao moon
Down where we used to go
That ol' Bilbao moon
I've forgotten the words!
That ol' Bilbao moon
Da da da da da dum (It was too long ago!)
That ol' Bilbao moon
Why does it haunt me so?
I don't know if it would have brought you joy or grief but I just don't know if you'd have liked what you'd have seen but
It was fantastic,
It was fantastic,
It was fantastic
Beyond belief.

Bill's beer hall in Bilbao, Bilbao, Bilbao,
Came a day the end of May in Nineteen-eight
Four guys from 'Frisco came with bags of gold dust, (sacks)
Bags of gold dust, bags of gold dust,
And the time they showed us all was really great.

But if you had been around to join the fun
Well I don't know if you'd've liked what you'd've seen, (you might not like)
The brandy bottles smashing everywhere
And the chairs flying through the air
Through the roof the moon's still shining green,
And those poor guys were going crazy with their pistols blazing high,
"Think you can stop 'em? Well, go ahead and try!"

That ol' Bilbao moon,
Down where we used to go,
That ol' Bilbao moon,
Casting its golden glow,
That ol' Bilbao moon
(Something with "love" in it!) I've forgotten the words!
Da da da da da da,
Wah wah wah wah wah wah.
I don't know if it would have brought you joy or grief but
It was fantastic
It was fantastic
It was fantastic
Beyond belief.

Bill's beer hall in Bilbao, Bilbao, Bilbao,
Now they've cleaned it up and made it middle class
With potted palms and ice cream
Very bourgeois, very bourgeois
Just another place to put your ass.

But if you should come around to see the fun
Well, I don't know, you might not find it such a pain, (Ha!) (strain)
They've cleaned up all the booze and broken glass,
And on parquet floors you can't grow grass,
They've shut the green moon out because of rain,
And the music makes you cringe now when you think of what you paid.
Hey Joe, play that ol' song they always played;

That ol' Bilbao moon,
Down where we used to go,
That ol' Bilbao moon,
Casting its golden glow,
That ol' Bilbao moon,
Love never laid me low,
That ol' Bilbao moon,
Why does it haunt me so?
I don't know if it would have brought you joy or grief but
It was fantastic,
It was fantastic,
It was fantastic
Beyond belief.

Just too long ago!
