Der unmögliche Traum (1968)
"The Impossible Dream (The Quest)"
Robert F Kennedy's favorite song;
composed by Mitch Leigh, with lyrics written by Joe Darion. The song is the most popular song from the 1965 Broadway musical Man of La Mancha and is also featured in the 1972 film of the same name starring Peter O'Toole.
I saw the stage play in Vienna, Austria in 1970. It was in German of course.
Der Mann Von La Mancha.
A very fine show that started it's run in Vienna (Wien, Österreich) in 1968.

Deutscher Text: Robert Gilbert
----------------------------------
Er träumt den unmöglichen Traum,
bekämpf den unschlagbaren Feind,
erträgt den untragbaren Kummer,
stürmt vor, wo der Tapferste flieht.
Er bricht das unrightige Recht,
Er liebt, keusch und Flammend von fern
Und reicht noch mit müdesten Arme
nach Zeil unerreichbare Stern.

Das ist mein Ruf, ich folge dem Stern,
wie glucklos auch immer,
wie unfassbar fern
und wage den Weg,
ja und frage nicht viel,
immer will ich zur Hölle zugehn für ein himmlisches Ziel.
Und ich weiß,
Volk auf Erden ich träum meinen höheren(heiligen) Ruf,
bis (das) ich dann tret getrost droben an vor dem Herrn der mich schuf.
Und der Welt wird ein helleres Licht
weil ein Mann, oh, so hoffnungslos gern,
aus der Nacht selber blind noch gereicht hat,
nach dir, unerreichbarer Stern.
