Brug nu den, og så forstanden, lad det boble lidt på panden,
sådan finder kvinden manden, bare boblerne er små!
Møde hvad der venter os,
og ingen véd hvordan det går.
Bære skæbnen uden trods,
He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know we'll meet again
Some sunny day
There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Tomorrow
Just you wait and see.
Up to mighty London came an Irish-
man one day,
as the street are paved with gold
sure ev’ryone was gay;
Here is fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the trees to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop.
He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
He had a boogie style that no one else could play
He was the top man at his craft
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
I give you a toast, ladies and gentlemen.
There'll be bluebirds over
The white cliffs of Dover,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
t'is I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow
Hitlers første verdenskrig Kvinderne i Ravensbrück

Bogtips

Leo Mathisen er en dansk kunstner, Jazz pianist og orkesterleder, der under 2. Verdenskrig fik et par store hits, hvor "To Be Or Not To Be" er et af de kendteste.

Sangteksten kan læses under videoen.

To be or not to be
that's the question
but not to me,
because I know I'll always
be in love with you.
I see that you're the one
and I'm positive you'll agree,
because I'll always love you
just the way I do.
I will put it like mister Romeo
when he entered the balcony
he said: Juliet my fiancée
how'd you like to marry me?
To be or not to be
that's the question
but not to me,
because I know that very soon we'll be
a happy family.
