Buenos Dias Weisse Taube
Frans Bauer Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Es war ein alter Mann
in einem fremden Land
Die Sonne brennt erbarmungslos
und heiss
eine weisse Taube hielt er in seiner
Hand
streichelt sie und sagt zu ihr
ganz leis.

Buenos Dias weisse Taube
flieg hinauf ins Himmelzelt
bring die Hoffnung und den Frieden
allen Menschen dieser Welt
Buenos Dias weisse Taube
sag was du von Freiheit meinst
und ein ganzes Meer von Tränen
war doch nicht umsonst geweint.

Die Taube flog davon
wohin - wer weiss das schon
der Alte schaut voll sehnsucht
hinterher
es war die siebte Taube




die in den Himmel flog
all die andren sah er niemals mehr.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Frans Bauer's song "Buenos dias weisse Taube" (Good morning white dove) tells the story of an old man living in a foreign land under the scorching sun, holding a white dove in his hand. As he caresses the bird, he whispers a message to it, asking it to fly up to the sky and bring hope and peace to all the people in the world. The chorus repeats the traditional Spanish greeting "Buenos dias" (Good morning) as a way for the old man to express his desire for a better future for all. The old man watches the dove fly away, wondering where it will go, but he holds hope that it will help spread a message of freedom and bring an end to the tears shed in the past.


The song is a beautiful message of peace and hope, calling for people to come together and strive for a better world. The white dove in the song is often used as a symbol of peace and is a well-known representation for ending wars and conflicts. The old man is also portrayed as someone who has experienced a lot of pain and suffering in his life, likely as a result of war and violence, and through the dove's flight, he hopes to see an end to these troubles.


Overall, "Buenos dias weisse Taube," with its gentle melody and heartfelt lyrics, speaks to the human desire for a better world, one where peace and love prevail over hatred and violence. It serves as a reminder that even in the darkest of times, there is always hope for a better future.


Line by Line Meaning

There was an old man
An elderly man existed


In a foreign land
He was in a place he did not call home


The sun burns mercilessly
The sun is scorching hot


And hot
And there's no escaping the heat


He held a white dove
He had a white bird in his hands


Stroking it gently and whispering
The man pets the bird lightly and speaks quietly to it


Good morning, white dove
The man greets the bird


Fly up to the sky
Fly up high in the sky


Bringing hope and peace
Carrying with you hope and peace


To all the people in the world
To every single person in the world


Good morning, white dove
The man repeats his welcome to the bird


Tell them what you think about freedom
Share your opinion about freedom with those you meet


And a whole sea of tears
All the tears shed


Was not cried in vain
Had a purpose and meaning behind it


The dove flew away
The bird took flight and left


Where it went, no one knows
Its destination is unknown


The old man looked longingly
The old man watched with longing eyes


After it
As it disappeared into the distance


It was the seventh dove
It was the seventh bird he sent off


That flew up to the sky
That took off into the sky and never returned

Meine Mutter hat sich das damals immer auf unseren alten Kassettenrekorder angehört. Mir kam das Lied gerade einfach spontan in den Sinn. Aber eins muss ich meiner Mutter lassen, sie hat auf jeden fall guten Musikgeschmack. 👍

Dieses Lied finde ich sehr schön 🙂 ich möchte auch eine weiße Taube da hinfliegen lasse wo gerade Krieg herrscht damit endlich wieder Frieden in allen Ländern sein kann ,warum können sich die Menschen nicht einfach in den Arm nehmen und sagen es ist alles wieder gut.🤗🙋‍♂️
