When I am forty, I will understand
how to live happy, to increase lifespan,
how to live healthy, to exercise,
how to get wealthy, and to be wise.
When I am forty, I will not teach,
I will play soccer and enjoy beach;
I will love women and never again
I will get married and suffer pain;
I will go south, I will go north,
climbing up and down, traversing across.
When I am forty, I will understand,
there is no guaranteed land.
Passing through my fifty, I will wave you buy
on a gravel road whispering " proschai".
I'm quite sober; what will happen then,
when I am forty again?
