ONCE UPON A BRIDGE (UMA VEZ NUMA PONTE)

Uma vez numa Ponte – Waiting for the Limo,

Uma vez numa Ponte – River flowing fast and wide,

Uma vez numa Ponte – Lethal belt around his waist,

He watched as the young girl – Came running to his side.

Is this just another scare – Frightened people everywhere,

We’ll talk – and let the fear go by – Find a silver lining in the sky

Uma vez numa Ponte – With his arms around her,

They looked so deeply – Into each other’s eyes,

Uma vez numa Ponte – Waiting for the Limo,

He knew at that moment – It was time to decide.

Is this just another scare – Frightened people everywhere,

Words might sting but leave their mark – Til hope and joy replace the dark.

Uma vez numa Ponte – Waiting for the Limo,

The man in the Limo – Smiled as he passed by,

Uma vez numa Ponte – Goodbye to all explosives,

Flung lethal belt from off the bridge –In the water deep will lie.

Is this just another scare – Frightened people everywhere,

Spears and arrows guns and bombs – Only kill our finest sons.

Sadly, this story – Must have a tragic ending,

The young girl’s body – Neath the bridge came floating by,

Filled with a great anger – Lethal belt round his waist,

Shook hands with his commander –Pressed the button – They both die.

The innocent must pay the price – Whilst the evil men just roll the dice,

Justice in the end prevails – Terrorism always fails.

So listen all you young ones – Who may also seek martyrdom,

Beauty and love – Is the World’s true heritage,

Uma vez numa Ponte – Is where he found and lost his true love,

You might find it also – Just standing on a bridge.

The brilliant paranormal light will glow – and everyone on Earth will know,

Tis time to hold each other’s hand – love hope and joy will rule the land.
