Frank Zappa – Satumaa lyrics
Frank zappa (lead guitar, vocals)
Napoleon murphy brock (saxophone, vocals)
George duke (keyboards, vocals)
Ruth underwood (percussion)
Tom fowler (bass)
Chester thompson (drums)

We have now a special request

Bouilliabai, bouilliabai, bouilliabai...
Stroganoff, bouilliabai
Here we go...

No, you'd better leave the lights on, on stage
'cause we have to read this music,
We've never played it before

Aavan meren tuolla puolen jossakin on maa,
Missä onnen kaukorantaan laine liplattaa.
Missä kukat kauneimmat luo aina loistettaan,
Siellä huolet huomisen voi jää dä unholaan.

Oi jospa kerran sinne satumaahan kä ydä vois,
Niin sieltä koskaan lä htisi en linnun lailla pois.
Vaan siivetö nnä en voi lentää vanki olen maan,
Vain aatoksin mi kauas entää sinne kä ydä saan.

Lennä laulu sinne missä siintää satumaa,
Sinne missä oma armain mua odottaa.
Lennä laulu sinne lailla linnun liitä vä N.
Kerro että aatoksissain on vain yksin hä N.

Oi jospa kerran...

Translation of the first two finnish verses:

There's a land beyond the vast sea
Where waves wash on the shores of happiness
Where beautiful flowers always blossom
Where worries of tomorrow can be forgotten

Oh if once I could go to that fairytale land
Never would I leave from there like a bird
But without wings I cannot fly, I'm a prisoner of ground
Only in thoughts that reach so far can I ever there be
