A song for the Age of Aquarius

Happy birthday, Aquarians!

Wasserman (Aquarius)
From a sequence of Zodiac tunes composed for musical box by Karl-Heinz Stockhausen (given to me by the composer when I visited him in his home).

Return to TOP

A year hurries by
No use to try
To make it slow

Time is the master
He hurries faster
He makes it go

But lovers can meet
Where dreams are sweet
And backwards flow

Today and tomorrow
May only bring sorrow
We reap and sow

But then in the night time
The moon shines a bright time
And still we know

What we have been
And what we have seen
Sings sweet and low

Our song and our story
Undimmed is the glory
The ebb and flow.

This birthday greeting is for one special Aquarian (she knows who she is) and all other Aquarians everywhere.
