what hands he has! what hands he has! they say

he becomes a poet everything passes through them

nothing remains what hands! what hands!

he becomes a banker all the money is gone

through his fingers nothing remains he returns to poetry

to hear again what hands he has! what hands he has!

my god how skilled he is with his hands!

kakve ruke ima! kakve ruke ima! govore

ode u pjesnike, sve prolazi kroz njih

ništa ne ostaje kakve ruke! kakve ruke!

ode u bankare ode sav novac svakom gleda

kroz prste ništa ne ostaje vrati se u poeziju

da opet čuje kakve ruke ima! kakve ruke ima!

moj bože kako taj zna s rukama!
