Nei villaggi di frontiera guardano passare i treni
Le strade deserte di Tozeur

Da una casa lontana, tua madre mi vede
Si ricorda di me delle mie abitudini

E per un istante ritorna la voglia
Di vivere a un’altra velocitĂ 
Passano ancora lenti i treni per Tozeur

Nelle chiese abbandonate si preparano rifugi
E nuove astronavi per viaggi interstellari

In una vecchia miniera, distese di sale
E un ricordo di me, come un incantesimo

E per un istante ritorna la voglia
Di vivere a un’altra velocitĂ 
Passano ancora lenti i treni per Tozeur

Mmm…
Dai daba daba da…
Nanai na nana nanana nana…
Nana dabai da nana…

Doch wir wollen dir ihn zeigen
Und du wirst…

Nei villaggi di frontiera guardano passare
I treni per Tozeur

Translation
In the frontier villages they watch the trains passing
The deserted roads of Tozeur

From a distant house, your mother sees me
And she remembers me for my habits

And for a moment returns my desire
Of living at a different pace
Still the trains for Tozeur are passing by slowly

In the abandoned churches, they prepare shelters
And new spaceships for journeys among the stars

In an old empty mine, the salt extends
And I seem to remember it, like a dream

And for a moment returns my desire
Of living at a different pace
Still the trains for Tozeur are passing by slowly

Mmm…
Dai daba daba da…
Nanai na nana nanana nana…
Nana dabai da nana…

Still we want to show him to you
And you will…

In the frontier villages, they watch
The trains passing by for Tozeur

The lyrics also contain a few words in German.
