English Ears ver.2
English is my language
An english tongue I have
With which to speak
English ears with which to hear
My ears are open.
Willing to meet foreign sounds at least half-way.
Other ears must be equally open.
So I listen …
What are they saying?
It is not that I have shut them out.
I have no idea
What these words are saying
To my open ears.
Where are the scholars of the world?
Who is there to build the bridges?
Between Eastern voices and Western ears.
Who builds the bridges
Between Western voices and Eastern ears.
Where are the scholars? Where are the bridges?
Tell me … What are they saying?
Please tell me what that man is saying?
Tell me if you will
What that woman has to say
How can there be world peace without world communication?
