the daisies
(music & lyrics: Mats Regen)

a troubadour had gone astray
but found some daisies on his way
he picked a bunch of them and went

until they‘d covered up the ground

and as the jester‘s deed was done

„democracy‘s under the daisies!“


released October 14, 2017
written and performed by Mats Regen,
recorded in a livingroom in Berlin-Neukölln in October 2017
