Вопреки протестантской этике

Вспомнилась песня, популярная в мои школьные годы. Самое странное, что автор текста (судя по фамилии) - немец...

"When I think of school I remember one thing:
"Hey, if you do not learn you'll become a nothing.
These are the rules of the game
that the more you have been learning
(I know it's true, it's a shame)
the more you'll be earning."


Let everyone keep on trying
to get his homework neatly done,
I'll find a place where life's more fun,
don't look for me when I am gone.

I spend my nights in the harbor,
see the ships on the bay.
I know why they are waiting:
they wanna take me far away.

I spend my nights in the harbor
where the ocean is near.
Who will cry when I'm leaving,
who's gonna try to keep me here?
Who will cry when I'm leaving,
who's gonna try to keep me here?"
