lyrics

BENJAMIN

Words & Music by: Piet Louter



Long before you came in, with wondering eyes,
They have already started and became unified guys.
All of them have earned their standing.
And everybody’s all right.
That you have to reach for, Benjamin.

So you must get used to their manners and their fun.
They have already made the rules, how things ought to be done.
And it’s all in their drilling game,
That a new man gets a different name.
They just keep calling you, Benjamin.

They all have been going through this hard time.
So they gladly avenge it and put you down.
And they haughtily show you, who’s the last in line,
Till another poor man comes around.


So you swallowed resignedly and took it so far.
But it’s time to lay down your fear and to show, who you are.
It was just in a magazine, what this name really means;
You’re the son of happiness, Benjamin.

They all have been going through this hard time.
So they gladly avenge it and put you down.
And they haughtily show you, who’s the last in line,
Till another poor man comes around.
