Nikita the Mummer & Sofia the Saint Nikita the Mummer Was building the town & was stopped by the lack of one nail Nikita the Mummer Stretched forward his palms & saw in them droplets of rain Nikita the Mummer Has left his town & entered the garden Nikita the Mummer Has left old wisdom and his drunken clansmen Sofia the Saint Has heard of him & came (on foot) to his home She looked for him And found him under a tree laying stoned Sofia the Saint has led him for forty days through the desert And they prayed & laughed together Look, Adonai! Castle to castle’s in fear! Teach us Adonai, to see you behind every evil Take in your hands you son & your daughter! Accept, Adonai, bitter wine & old bread Look Adonai, we are drowning in red Teach us to breath under water! Ten thousand temples Wait for him because he has promised to come If there’s a saviour, Ten thousand temples believe he’s the one And the fire has raged And turned rain into steam But the town will survive If ten of us keep talking to himEdit
Well, this is not an orthodox or Orthodox translation. If anything it's a Jewish one. Moreover, the name implies that it's an international & politicaly correct translation :) And it also rhymes. If there's any comments, I would like to hear them.
