All day long I lie in the clouds,
Forgetting about the time.
Returning from dreams
I find the sun shining warm
On my bed of clouds.

Mindless of this and that,
My body is relaxed;
So I go along with ever more
Affection for the clouds.

Another year I’ll pass away
And the clouds alone will remain;
And the clouds will be sorry
My life was so short.
