Text

Song III
English source: Robert Tear

Eternity is long enough just for a laugh.
Time drops dead when you laugh.
No place for epitaph or draw a graph
To write a paragraph or drink a carafe,
To touch a calf, to ride a giraffe.
To read the Telegraph or consort with riff-raff,
To be a polymath or even be photographed.
With laughter there is no hereafter.
