airport information (still to be entered)


the police is on fire
and I know why
into my eyes he stares
he thinks "a spy!"

my height, my beard and temperament
his suspicious glance
at my travel mate of chinese descent
he wants to put us behind a fence.

what did we do?
what is the matter?
I can tell you!
the sooner the better!

to the airport we traveled,
on roads far and wide.
carrying a secret:
a german army knife.

it is the gift of a friend
who knows how old?
half the earth together we explored
it's value - now thousandfold

in my handluggage I had it
I don't know why
a police man found it
now they think I'm a spy

a terrorist
the way my face is cut
they already checked it on a list
they want to have me shot!

they look at her and look at me
trying to talk soothingly
no need for trouble
we can pay you double!

no need for cash
the police are not so rash
we don't carry hash
we just look like trash

he says "it's a crime"
I didn't know
don't know what to do
please let us go

"can you show me on paper?"
of course not!
so that's what you have got
he will let us go sooner or later

our escort in silence walks
listening to foreign talks
we are happy because we left
no crime, no fee, no theft

to an office he points
"weapon disposal"
in we go
a friendly rehearsal

fill out this paper,
and give me this!
friendly officer
what a bliss.

behind us a man
with hat and coat
pulling a gun
and some bullets out

her eyes and mine
meet for a second
our fears combine
the man is a detective, we reckoned

he drops his weapon to the desk
I sign the papers very fast
no need to rest
don't want to hear gun's blast

a coffee we drink
rejoice in memories
time flies by in a wink
"put on your seatbelt, please"

Istanbul vanishes from the ground
new horizons we have found
up in the sky we fly
like a strange insects, the clouds run by
