Am I a spirit wandering in the dense forest
Or, am I a bird without a home
Am I an old nun at rest
Or am I a flag, fixed on a high pole
Am I the mountains overlooking the city
Or am I the ocean surrounding the world

I believe myself an orphan
Without a home to stay 
Walking from door to door
Begging some food each day
In return I play my mouth organ
So I might get some more

On the narrow path I stroll my way
Night ends and soon comes day
I meet a parish priest
Who is back from the village feast
I ask him who am I
He stares at a me with a sigh

Now I really know who I am
If anyone wishes to know who am I
I am a poor lonesome traveller
Going all round the four corners
Seekingh happiness and joy
Looking for a place, where I can settle
