Der Sommerwind

July 31, 2016

“Der Sommerwind (The Summer Wind),” written by Heinz Meier with lyrics by Hans Bradtke, performed by Esther Ofarim in 1970. A version with English lyrics by Johnny Mercer was a hit for Frank Sintara in 1966.

Der Sommerwind,
er hat gespielt mit meinem Haar,
ich stand am Meer
nur weil mein Herz so einsam war.
Doch dann kamst Du
und zeigtest mir,
wie schön die Sterne sind.
Und dazu sang der Sommerwind.

The summer wind,
played with my hair,
I stood by the sea
because my heart was lonely.
But then you came
and showed me,
how beautiful the stars are.
while sang the summer wind.
