Did I tell you how I got home to Hungary?
I was freed.
beginning of May.
Started to walk towards home,
it was a clear night at the border.
In the farmer's garden
the stars were in the sky.
They'd just had their supper
and the stars were in the sky.
A group of women from the camp,
we had to beg for morsels.
I was Jewish you see, I have my tattoo,
had nothing to look forward to.
Didn't I tell you?
I talked to God.
Arrived finally in Cardiff ‘57,
where every house is the same;
couldn't find the address,
no matter how I tried.
