For me, the year was 1978. My friends in school, all were listening to this song. In a way, it was the only song from an East German band, to which we would admit listening. Well, most of us. We would play it on our cassette recorders; today you get it on youtube. This song has been playing for years; and I aged with the musicians. The lyrics are by Hildegard Maria Rauchfuß, who was 60 years old, when I heard the song first.
