The Piper Lyrics - Abba

Review The Song (3)



They came from the hills
And they came from the valleys and the plains
They struggled in the cold
In the heat and the snow and in the rain
Came to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon
Sub Luna Saltamus

They came from the south
From the west and the north and from the east
sponsored links
They waited for the man
Like a parish is waiting for the priest
Longed to hear him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon
Sub Luna Saltamus

He came in a dream
He seduced everybody in the land
The fire in his eyes
And the fear was a weapon in his hand
So they let him play
Play their minds away

We're all following a strange melody
We're all summoned by a tune
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon
We're following the piper
And we dance beneath the moon for him
And we dance beneath the moon

"The Piper" by ABBA and "The Pied Piper of Hamelin" by Robert Browning | Reviewer: Joshua Colecha | 6/13/14

The lyrics of this song seemed to have been inspired by Robert Browning's "The Pied Piper of Hamelin". The song is unusually beautiful like the hypnotic melody of the piper but its lyrics evoke fear like the vengeance of the Pied Piper to the people of Hamelin!

Some of ABBA´s songs sound very much like rearrangements of alredy existing folk tunes. "The Eagle" is another good example of this. It´s a well-known fact that Benny Andersson is well acquainted with folk music, both swedish & from other countries.

The Piper (Super Trouper) | Reviewer: Brian | 9/11/07

Oh my gosh! I LOVE THIS SONG!!!!! It's strange but a very good song by ABBA also following "Merry-Go-Round":) 5 Stars! ALL THE WAY
