Tomorrow belongs to me

On the occasion of the Informal Meeting of EU Foreign Affairs Ministers in Bremen (30 – 31 March), 54 children from all 27 EU Member States will gather there to take part in a week-long workshop entitled "Europa Kinderland" (Europe, Land of Children).

At the invitation of Federal Foreign Minister Steinmeier the 9 – 10-year-old children will discover Europe for themselves in a joint project: The starting point is the song entitled "Kleine Europäer / Europa Kinderland" (Little Europeans / Europe, Land of Children).

The closing song will proberbly go like this

[Federal Foreign Minister Steinmeier (spoken)]
Herr Atkins! You are not leaving so early?

[Little tommy]
I do not find this party amusing.

[Federal Foreign Minister Steinmeier]
Ah- but it is just beginning. Come, we will make it
amusing- you and I- Ja?

Federal Foreign Minister Steinmeier- Tommy this is for you:

The sun on the meadow is summery warm.
The stag in the forest runs free.
But gather together to greet the storm.
Tomorrow belongs to me.

The branch of the linden is leafy and
The Rhine gives its gold to the sea.
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen.
Tomorrow belongs to me.

Herr Aitkins! Sing with me!

[Frau Merkel AND Little Tommy]
The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes
The blossom embraces the bee.
But soon, says a whisper;
"Arise, arise,
Tomorrow belongs to me"

[Frau Merkel]

Oh Fatherland, Fatherland,
Show us the sign
Your children have waited to see.
The morning will come
When the world is mine.
Tomorrow belongs to me!
