    Default Oh Glockenton

    Please provide the lyrics, in German, for this song. I found it on YouTube sung by Heintje with the Russian group 'The Don Cossacks'. The video poster helped a lot, but some words are missing. Thank you, fred

    fred_wells, can you provide the song's location on youtube (with the parts you'd like to know)?
    The song can't be worse than what Tahira and me have been up to lately we could give it a try.. so far this is what I found on youtube, but it's a bit short:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjghUwJXa4k

    This is what Heintje is singing

    Oh Glockenton, oh Abendklang
    Wie weckt mir Sehnsucht dein Gesang
    Wie ich geliebt mein Heimatland
    Wo meines Vaters Hütte stand

    Und nicht mehr hier sind viele schon
    Die einst gelauscht der Glocke Ton

    Oh Glockenton, oh Abendklang
    Wie weckt mir Sehnsucht dein Gesang


    ETA.. here is something I found on the net most likely also referring to this song:

    O Glockenton, o Abendklang
    Wie weckt mir Sehnsucht dein Gesang
    Wo ich geliebt, im Heimatland
    Wo meines Vaters Hütte stand
    Da hört ich einst zum letzten Mal
    Den Glockton zu meiner Qual
    Und nicht mehr hier sind viele schon,
    Die einst gelauscht der Glocke Ton

    Sie liegen nun in tiefem Schlaf,
    Ach, viel zu früh der Tod sie traf!
    Nun hör ich euch und ahn es bang,
    Nicht lange freut mich der Klang.
    Dann werd nicht ich, - vielleicht ein Sohn
    Versunken stehen im Glockenton...

    O Glockenton, o Abendklang
    Wie weckt mir Sehnsucht dein Gesang

    but this is not what Heintje sings in the video I had
    Oh and if you need/want a translation you're very much welcome in the translation section, don't worry we have a wide range of different music styles over there..

    होता है जो होना है ... वक़्त ही शायद खुदा है ...
    कौन कहता है आदमी अपनी किस्मत खुद लिखता है?
