"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

Security
(Dee Shipman / Herman Van Veen)

Lovely shower people said and smiled
As the flood curtained down from the sky
Then they began to drown
Except for a few
Who knew 
Who to buy to keep dry

Faith won't move the smallest mountains now
What belief can't provide, money can
We comfortably exist 
With rain on the brain
No pain, 'cos we don't give a damn!

The government holds elections
With just one party
They like security
But most of us can never make a choice
We know what to say
But seem to have lost our voice

Equal shares are not in fashion now
Thank God.!
He who bullshits will inherit all the bread
No need to earn your jam
If work is not your trip
You just rip somebody else off instead..........!

Sheer indifference alone prevails
In determining a current market price
In copper, tin or tea 
With coffee or with coke
We are choking in a fool's paradise

The government holds elections
With just one party
They like security
But most of us can never make a choice
We know what to say
But seem to have lost our voice

God gave man a mind to rule the world
But he chooses to worry instead
About his loss of hair
And is his woman true?
He's screwed in his head 
And his bed!

Processed, pampered by the welfare state
Social sops from the rich to the poor
So when you're in your box
And six feet below
You'll know that you're secure...........!
