In the city of lights there's darkness in the soul
and the sun swears
cold, empty eyes in the rain
but they don't see a thing
I look in the river, ask a prayer
bring his waves from afar
tears like a river will travel with the stream
between the sour and the sweet.

Oh My Dad
ah My dad

Remeber the good
the happiness of the house
and the Sabbath candles
Beautiful Mom
the fragrance of summer
and the daughter's laughter

Oh My Dad
ah My dad

Ah My Dad
oh My dad
