Help me, help me, Lord!

Christ, protect me!

Help me, help me, Lord!

Can not protect anyone?

They sent the Angel of Death

to kill me

Did not anyone hear me?

I feel his warm breath,

the smell of death,

Redeem me, help me,

someone help me

Nobody can help me?

Death haunts me,

Angel of Death

back to hell

Believe us,

trust us, everything goes well,

The snake is dead

The beast has failed

the boy was saved,

Our female power

have prevailed,

Our female power

have succeeded,

How sweet youth

so tender and strong,

Such innocence

can do no wrong

Such beauty does not last long

My heart rejoices

to see this guy so handsome

looking at this guy so sweet

Fast, small,

let's tell our lady

we have seen


Perhaps this good-looking man

will make her laugh

and smile again

will make her laugh

and smile again

Tell her this finding as

splendid, I think I stay,

Id you, I'm me

No, no, run ye

I already took care of him,

I think I stay,

I'll stay longer,

Let him in my hands,

I remain,

I watch him,

We care,




They think I'm going to go,

They think I'm going to go,

They think I'm going to go,

They think I'm going to go,

They think I'm going to go,

They think I'm going to go,

We'll see,

We'll see,

We'll see,

I want to be alone with this guy,

Alone with him,

No, no,

No, no,

No, no,

No, no, it can be

I want to be alone with this guy,

Alone with him,

No, no,

No, no,

No, no,

No, no, it can be

I would give my fortune,

I would give my fortune,

I would give my fortune,

To be alone with him

To be alone with him

To be alone with him

To have this beauty to me

To have this beauty to me

To have this beauty to me

Yes, for me,

But here we are,

here we are and can not be

I say goodbye, king of men,

I say goodbye, king of men,

I say goodbye, king of men,

I say goodbye, king of men,

King of men,

My dream of happiness, I say goodbye,

Dear boy, stay there

until we meet again,


until then


Until we meet again,

until we meet again,

My eyes fill with tears,

what grace so tender,

makes me mourn,

Adieu, AufWiedersehen,


Until then

Until we meet again,

we meet again,

Until we meet again,

We meet again,

Until we meet again,

Adieu, AufWiedersehen,



Adieu, AufWiedersehen,

Where am I?

The birds are fine.

The trench is clear.

The work of the fowler

not completed

edge of dawn

until the sun sets,

In slavery ungrateful

works to protect the young,

Food and dome these copier,

amount put traps and nets,

I speak perfect pigeon

and I come down

birds in the trees,

The birder must love

their birds

and soothe

with sweet words,

Escape from the cage


but they always return home

I see a couple of birds

and fills my heart

thoughts of love,

If the girls were more

like birds

would all be friends of mine,

If a girl to be my love

would leave the ground

and fly through the heights

'd Fly over

tired of this world

and graze the sky with wings

'd Fly and trinary


and then would land


Ylenta and sweetly

my dove sing

well suited

under the wing of the fowler,

My God!

Where did you saIido?

Where are we?

Here, I guess. Work here.

Do you work?

Bucket Queen birds to Ia.

"The queen? What queen?

What queen?

As the Queen of the Night.

Is this a dream?

Do not get weird.

Do not approach. I have my tactics.

Do I have redeemed you?

Is it still peIigroso?

How I can make it up?

It was nothing.

When I see someone in trouble

helped him. Nothing happens.

"PeIigro? Io I do not know what it means.
