A New Heaven And A New Earth

Les Cinq Vierges (original French) – Pour Jacques

Il y avait cinq vierges
Qui sont venues aux Noces de l’Agneau
Avec leur motos en panne

Et leurs bidons de petrole

Mais puisq’elles savaient
On leur dit quand meme
De rester:

Et viola: il y avait
Cinq vierges hurluberlues
Sans petrole
Mais bien engagees
Dans le mouvement.

Il y avait donc dix vierges
Aux Noces de l’Agneau.

the five virgins

there were 5 howling virgins
who came
to the wedding of the lamb
with their disabled motorcycles
and their oil tanks

but since they knew how
to dance
a person says to them
to stay anyhow

and there you have it
there were 5 noisy virgins
without gas
but looking good in the traffic of the dance

there were ten virgins
at the wedding of the lamb
