A 17      
 

the belly howls and it’s good to see
a drive-in restaurant before me
I need some slimy burgers and frites
beer and strong coffee for my following trip

I’m a trucker drivin’ down the A 17
nothing around just the countryside and me

back on the road I don’t believe what I see
a shit fucking policeman ist tryin’ to stop me
this son of a bitch wants to check my load
I want to go on and give him a dollar-note

I’m a trucker drivin’ down the A 17
nothing around just the countryside and me

after some miles not thinking about something special
I see a pretty young girl looking for a ride
she’s got hot legs and so I decide to take her with me
dream woman ist sitting near me but I’m still on the A 17

 
   

 

Pretty Nice Boy      
 

I’m a pretty nice boy and I come from the freak valley
I’m a pretty nice boy and I play in our company
I’d like to sing you a song
about my way of movin’ on
‘cause I’m a pretty nice boy and I like my company

now I’m a pretty nice young man and I like to meet pretty women
I’m a pretty young man and I like to drive my car
I like the quick life and it’s parties
I like the rockers and their shanties
and as a pretty young man I don’t like to think so far

Now I’m a pretty old guy and I still come from the freak valley
and as a pretty old guy I also come from the world
I saw them folks getting cold
but I say it’s well worth growin’ old
‘cause there were many things to enjoy
since I was a pretty boy
and I don’t just like looking behind
and that makes me still very kind
‘cause as a pretty old guy I kept my pretty nice boy in mind

 
   

 

Enomi’s Village      
 

sun
fun
for both and more I run
but there’s the kids to squeal
emptyness I feel

a show
to go
a band you’ll never know
stays frozen to the bone
alone

you smile
for a while
alone on your isle
each hot-shot does the same
waiting for a flame

out
I shout
get off this roundabout
why do they need
this mask I ask

a hand
of a friend
a love that’ll never end
nothing to be seen
I’m on the wrong side of the screen

night
no sight
don’t you see the light
there’s nothing left to hide
so fight

 
   

 

Goiní back in time      
  As I walk down the battlefield
where they were standing side by side
asking myself how it would be
to know this fight might be the last thing you do

Breathing the air of liberty
I think how it was for them
to fight the powerful enemy
to defend what meant everything for them

Goinín back in time
imaginí it was me
who stand tall and brave
to fight the enemy

An suddenly the wind begins to blow stronger
Before my eyes they stand all again
like in a movie they start to fight blood on blood
keeping their sword held up high
all the brave men want is glory

Goinín back in time
imaginí it was me
who stand tall and brave
to fight the enemy

Goinín back in time
imaginí how it was
to defend the country
which you love

Today, lotís of people hang around
waisting their time - aimless
wake up, find out whatís important for you
work it out, go for that, go for that

 
   

 

How Do You Do      
  may be
there are better words to find
but we learned from life
itís not our kind
we ainít smart
we ainít hard
in a political way
tvís our life today

eat
while you can
your dough
and then
you dream
your dream
nobodyíll change the scene

hello how is your face
hello I admire your grace
hello isnít it true
hello how do you do

workiní an a railroad
hammer in my hand
workiní an a railroad
endless iron through the land
gonna get my money
every day
gotta give it to my honey
when itís time to pay

sleepiní on a parkbench
covered with the daily news
sleepiní on a parkbench
singiní the daily blues
gotta get my money
every night
gotta buy my bottle
to hold me tight

goiní to a playground
to watch the childerns game
goiní to a playground
to see I feel the same
hear their happy parents
chattering so cool
hear them saying to the childern
ignore him heís a fool

 
   

 

Pipe Dream of Sleeping Under a Weeping Willow      
  stand in a dark circle of a sick mind
pulliní people inside
sometimes I try to escape

eatiní their meat
lickiní their blood
sometimes I try to forget

destroyiní their mind
Ďtil they get insane
we all get insane

I didnít wanna but although it hurts
to see the creeping loafs
dying bodies all around

I said warden, warden, warden
wonít you break your lock and key
now come along here mister
and let the poor boy be

let the poor boy ...

sometimes I feel as if I were free - but itís just the look of the ones who are
sometimes I feel as if I were happy - but itís nothing but the momentary fact that
Iím not sad
and sometimes - yeah sometimes I feel as if I were dead

 
   

 

I loved 
another woman
(P.A. Greenbaum)
     
  My babyís gone and left me cryin by myself
My babyís gone and left me cryin by myself
I loved another woman now I lost my best gal

She was a real good woman, she never done me no harm
Was a real good woman, never done me no harm
I loved another woman, now sheís up and sheís gone

Well come back baby, I wonít do you no wrong
Come back baby, I wonít do you no wrong
I loved another woman but I wonít do that no more

 
   

 

Buy Bye World      
 

you come in
people rush around
and the neonlights
strangle the vains of your
fantasy
is just used
to choose if you should take
the nicer the bigger the best or the cheapest

buy bye world
it’s never as cheap as today
buy bye world
you’ll never be reaped like today

departement store
you place of false smilings
you birthplace of gossip
you’re the top of
civilisation
you’re all we need
to knock our feelings down
but some check-out-chicken will help you out again

buy bye world
it’s never as cheap as today
buy bye world
you’ll never be reaped like today

you come out
your bag filled with dog bisquits
you antie your child
an you open the car
you had a stress
you bought things you don’t need
but you’re sure you economised your time
and the you come home an you turn your new radio on

"hello, here’s Wendy from the new
nailshop in dullness west road
I just say care for your nails
with a season ticket for one treatment
a day you save 15 %
just pop in an thank you for your visit"

"what a bullshit"

"oh darling don’t be so rude
just take a look at my nails
they’re so ugly und I’m such a unmodern person
you also would be happier having a nice wife, wouldn’t you"

"ok, that’s an argument
you’ve convinced me
think I’m gonna buy you a
season ticket for your birthday alright"

"oh darling
you’re such a cute guy
I love you so much
hi hi hi hi ..."

buy bye world
it’s never as cheap as today
buy bye world
you’ll never be reaped like today
