    WHERE HAVE ALL THE FLOWERS GONE SONGTEXT

    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Long time ago

    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Young girls picked them every one
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?
    Where have all the young girls gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the young girls gone?
    Long time ago

    Where have all the young girls gone?
    Gone to young men, every one
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?
     
    Where have all the young men gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the young men gone?
    Long time ago

    Where have all the young men gone?
    They are all in uniform
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?

    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Long time ago

    Where have all the soldiers gone?
    Gone to graveyards every one
    When will they ever learn?
    When will they ever learn?

    Where have all the graveyards gone?
    Long time passing
    Where have all the graveyards gone?

    Where have all the graveyards gone?
    Cowered with flowers every one

    Ooh ooh, ooh ooh, ooh
    Where have all the flowers gone?
    Long time ago

    Text Polish

    Gdzie są kwiaty z tamtych lat?

    Gdzie są kwiaty z tamtych lat?
    Jasne kwiaty
    Gdzie są kwiaty z tamtych lat?
    Czas zatarł ślad 
     
    Gdzie są kwiaty z tamtych lat?
    Każda z dziewcząt wzięła kwiat
    Kto wie, czy było tak
    Kto wie, czy było tak 
     
    Gdzie dziewczęta z tamtych lat?
    Jak te kwiaty
    Gdzie dziewczęta z tamtych lat?
    Czas zatarł ślad
     
    Gdzie dziewczęta z tamtych lat?
    Za chłopcami poszły w świat
    Kto wie, czy było tak
    Kto wie, czy było tak 
     
    Gdzie są chłopcy z tamtych lat?
    Dzielne chwaty
    Gdzie są chłopcy z tamtych lat?
    Czas zatarł ślad
     
    Gdzie są chłopcy z tamtych lat?
    Na żołnierski poszli szlak
    Kto wie, czy było tak
    Kto wie, czy było tak
     
    Gdzie żołnierzy naszych kwiat?
    Tych sprzed laty
    Gdzie żołnierzy naszych kwiat?
    Czas zatarł ślad
     
    Gdzie żołnierze z tamtych lat?
    Tam, gdzie w polu krzyża znak
    Kto wie, czy było tak
    Kto wie, czy było tak 
     
    Gdzie mogiły z dawnych lat?
    Tam, gdzie kwiaty
    Gdzie mogiły z dawnych lat?
    Czas zatarł ślad
     
    Gdzie mogiły z dawnych lat?
    Tam, gdzie kwiaty posiał wiatr
    Kto wie, czy było tak
    Kto wie, czy było tak
     

    "Let there be peace among all beeing in the universe. Let there be peace, let there be peace, let there be peace"
