24 grammata for which the bell rings

Roy:

And when the bell rings, the time has come, (then) I'll sing for the last time.

And when I lie there in peace, sing this one more time!

Dex:

Have you ever considered what you would say

when you lie there in front of those who know you?

What words would you want to include?

Here, so to these, my ode to life:

And I've done everything I planned to do here

I've done things for myself and for you

I've already seen the silver and went for gold

I was sometimes damn hot and sometimes cold for days

but i always tried to be loving

to stand up for the neighbors, to stand by the friends,

to rely on family day and night.

I got so much, not always expected, yeah ..

and that is my philosophy! So do me a favor:

When I'm gone, remember.

'Cause before you know it your show is over

So let it go, one more time, one more time for me.

Roy:

And when the bell rings, the time has come, (then) I'll sing for the last time.

And when I lie there in peace, sing this one more time!

Dex & Roy:

And when the bell rings, have a nice party for me

one that runs and runs forever.

And should I go anywhere, don't worry about myself

but toast to life and don't mourn for me.

Dex:

I was born in love, too small in stature

But I went my own way, chose the music

sometimes 'unemployed' was the choice, with no money in the bank,

sometimes shows everywhere and i was the hero of the town.

But I've always tried to be myself.

This often worked well, but sometimes not entirely.

I finished my sentences and spoke the word

and I've been everywhere, south, east, north, west

and i was broke and i made loot.

I knew love and broke up again

and I was madly in love with him or her -

and she knows because I've said it so many times -

and that is my philosophy! So do me a favor:

when I'm gone, say it one more time.

But before you know it, the show is over.

So let it go, one more time, one more time for me.
