Helen merrill - Donna donna

On a wagon bound for market,
There's a calf with a mournful eye
High above him there's a swallow
Winging swiftly through the sky

[Chorus]
How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
And half of the summer's night
Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Don
Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Donna Don

Stop complaining said the farmer
Who told you a calf to be
Why don't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow so proud and free


[Chorus]

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
Those who love and cherish freedom
Like the swallow will learn to fly

[Chorus]
