Jean Jülich: Es war in Schanghai

Es war in Schanghai
Um Mitternacht in der Ohio-Bar,
da trafen sich drei Tramper,
die durch die Welt gezogen war´n.
Jim Parker, der kam aus Frisco,
aus Hamburg der lange Hein
und Charly, der machte den Vorschlag:
„Kameraden, wir trampen zu drein.“

Auf einem Schoner
Fuhren sie hinüber nach Hawaii,
unter Kokospalmen
sangen leis ein Liedel, die drei,
ein Lied voll von Liebe und Treue,
ein Lied voll von Heimat und Glück,
doch keinen, den packte die Reue
und keiner, der sehnte sich zurück.

[complete lyrics here]

It was in Shanghai
At midnight, the Ohio Bar,
Where met three hitchhikers,
That fate pulled through the world.
Jim Parker, who came from ‘Frisco;
Tall Hein from Hamburg;
and Charley, who made ​​the proposal
“Comrades, we hitchhike again.”

On a schooner
They went to Hawaii
Under coconut trees
Softly sang a little song, those three.
A song full of love and loyalty,
A song full of home and happiness,
None that held on to remorse
And no one longed to go back.

Telegraph: “Jean Jülich, who has died aged 82, was one of the last surviving members of the Edelweiss Pirates.”

Edelweiss Pirates at Wikipedia.
