Cornelis Vreeswijk – Esmeralda lyrics

Nдare jag var ung, lekte jag kull,
Med Esmeralda fцare lekens skull.
Men sе en dag nдare jag tog henne fatt,
Mдrke jag till min fцrvеning att;
Kдrlekens lеga brann I min sjдl.
Dдare svann min ungdom, adjц och farvдl.

Nдare vi blev дldre sцp jag dig full.
Min Esmeralda, fцare kдrlekens skull.
Du bjцd mig in till din kammare fin.
Du bjцd pе saft, jag bjцd pе gin.
Kдrleken tдndes av olika skдl.
Dдare svann din oskuld, adjц och farvдl.

Kдrleken varade inte sеklart.
Jag var fцrhдxad men du var smart.
Du sеg dig kring nдare jag var I trans.
Du gjorde s*** per korrespondans.
"Han дr den rдtte", skrev du, falske dam.
"Vi skall fцrlova oss! Puss och kram."

Vidare skrev du, "allt дr fцrbi".
"Du har fцrlorat min sympati,
Fortsдtt du leva I slarv och misдare,
Min nyblivne fдstman дare halvmiljonдare.
Дkta passion har han skдnkt mig ocksе,
Sе stick du och gцm dig, fridens dе. "

Liksom en herdinna med dimmig blick,
Var Esmeralda I avklдtt skick.
Jag sеg nдare jag stal hennes ros, sе jag vet.
Dе var hon smal, men nu дare hon fet.
Fцrr var hon ivrig, men nu дare hon slц.
Tur att det blev som det blev, adjц.
