Marijan
Come sit you down here by my side,
In the welcome firelight glow
The care's of the day are soon forgot
As we share the tales we know

Chorus Marijan and Bianca
Oh the wheel it turns the dice are thrown
The game it never ends
In field and tavern. hill and street
Come sing the health of friends

Morgenblume
We break the bread at the end of the day
Good company we make
So pass the jug and laugh and sing
and strife the devil take

Chorus Morgenblume and Heydline
Oh the wheel it turns the dice are thrown
The game it never ends
In field and tavern hill, and street
Come sing the health of friends/

Heydline
The piper comes from the dreaming hills
The singers leave their books
The storyman is here from afar
With the magic that he took

Chorus Heydline und Marijan
Oh the wheel it turns the dice are thrown
The game it never ends
In field and tavern, hill and street
Come sing the health of friends

Bianca
New voices come from near and far
To live and love and dream
The light we touch, the love we share
in song protects our flame

Chorus Bianca and Coon
Oh the wheel it turns the dice are thrown
The game it never ends
In field and tavern, hill and street /Come sing the health of friends

Coon
In the dying sun, in the moon's full light
The times of trial are fled
Fear and sadness fall away
And the tears of laughter shed

Chorus Coon and Morgenblume
Oh the wheel it turns the dice are thrown
The game it never ends
In field and tavern, hill and street-
Come sing the health of friends
