Enola Gay

Tekst af: Karl Bartos, Ralf Huetter og Emil Schult

Enola Gay er navnet på det fly, som kastede den første Atombombe i krigstid. Det skete den 6. august 1945 over den japanske by Hiroshima.

Gruppen OMD skrev følgende sang om episoden.

En sød finurlighed i sangen er “mother proud of little boy today”. Den første Atombombe hed Little Boy.

Under videoen er teksten til musiken.

Enola gay, you should have stayed at home yesterday
Aha words can’t describe the feeling and the way you lied

 

These games you play, they’re gonna end it more than tears someday
Aha enola gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way

 

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

 

Enola gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away

 

Enola gay, it shouldn’t ever have to end this way
Aha enola gay, it shouldn’t fade in our dreams away

 

It’s 8:15, and that’s the time that it’s always been
We got your message on the radio, conditions normal and you’re coming home

 

Enola gay, is mother proud of little boy today
Aha this kiss you give, it’s never ever gonna fade away
