Donna Donna

Music and lyrics by Sholom Secunda and Aaron Zeitlin, translated by Arthur S. Kevess and Teddi Schwartz


On a wagon, bound for market
There's a calf with a mournful eye
High above him, there's a swallow
Winging swiftly through the sky

How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Love and laugh the whole day through
And half a summer's night

Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don
Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don

"Stop complaining" said the farmer
"Who told you what had to be?
Why can't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow, so proud and free?"

How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Love and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night

Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don
Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
Never knowing the reason why
Oh, why can't you have wings to fly with
Like the swallow you'd learn to fly

How the winds are laughing
They laugh with all their might
Love and laugh the whole day through
And half the summer's night

Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don
Donna, donna, donna, donna
Donna, donna, donna, don
