French
Sur une galaxie en l’an trois mille (En l’an trois mille)
Un vieil homme est assis sur le sol gris (Sur le sol gris)
Autour de lui, tous les enfants sont réunis
Pour écouter ce qu’il va raconter

Regardez, mes petits, là-bas, dans la nuit (Là, dans la nuit)
Cette boule qui brille était pleine de vie (Pleine de vie)
Les hommes de naguère en étaient fiers
Et l’avaient baptisée: la Terre

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Terre, Terre des Hommes

Il y avait de l’eau et de grands arbres (C’est quoi un arbre?)
Et des milliers d’oiseaux volant sur les vagues (C’est quoi une vague?)
Et plein de fruits dans les vallées et les prairies
Et les forêts savaient encore chanter

Il y avait des femmes et des filles en fleurs (C’est quoi une fleur?)
Les hommes les portaient autour de leurs cœurs (C’est quoi un cœur?)
Les femmes de naguère en étaient fières
L’amour était fruit de la terre

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Terre, Terre des Hommes

Et voilà, mes amis, l’histoire est finie (Pourquoi finie?)
Cette boule qui brille n’a plus de vie (n’a plus de vie)
Les hommes de naguère étaient tous frères
Mais ils ont inventé la guerre

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Terre, Terre des Hommes

Humanahum
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Terre, Terre des Hommes

Humanahum

Translation
On a galaxy in the year three thousand (In the year three thousand)
An old man is sitting on the grey ground (On the grey ground)
Around him, all the children are gathered
To listen to what he’s going to say

Look, my children, over there, in the night (There, in the night)
This shining ball was full of life (Full of life)
The men of not long ago were proud of it
And christened it: the Earth

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Land, Land of Men

There were water and tall trees (What is a tree?)
And thousands of birds flying over the waves (What is a wave?)
And a lot of fruits in the valleys and the prairies
And forests could still sing

There were women and girls in flowers (What is a flower?)
The men had them around their hearts (What is a heart?)
The women of not long ago were proud of it
Love was fruit of the earth

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Land, Land of Men

And that’s that, my friends, the story is finished (Why finished?)
This shining ball has no more life (Has no more life)
The men of not long ago were all brothers
But they invented the war

Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Land, Land of Men

Humanahum
Humanahum (Humana-huma)
Humanahum
Land, Land of Men

Humanahum
