Vertaling van: Racoon - Geef Je Hart Niet Zomaar Weg

When our girl was a little girl
And quite nice to see
Then she fell for that wild one
The one with cents in addition
And he spent his money like water
To that nonsense and to women
But our little girl, oh, she fell in love
And she wanted to marry him

Come on, don't just give your heart away
Don't be too trusting
look at that guy and say
Is that one to build on

But she yelled right in her daddy's face
Hey dad, you're whining
If you love our mom so much
Then you show that damn bad
She's been looking so sad for years
Her whole face is crying
And then you tell me as coolly as you can
Abstain from true love

Come on, don't just give your heart away
Don't be too trusting
Come on, look at that guy and say
Is that one to build on

And now she lives far away and without him
On an island in the heat
And she has her own diving school there
And not a nickel to sit on
But she's living the life of her dream
Her dear father is no more
But she sees his calm, wise eyes
Every time, every time

Come on, don't just give your heart away
Don't be too trusting
And look at life and say
Tell me where you want to build

And if someone ever says
That you have to stop with your dreams
That your world is full and dirty
And you'll never get very far
That you must watch, watch, because the future
Is only for those who save
Well, we're saving for tomorrow
And we forget, life is today

So don't just give your heart away
Don't be too trusting
The truth is not what you read
But what you're going to build on

So don't just give your heart away
Don't be too bad of faith
The truth is not what you read
But what you've come to love
