Alpine Lawine (Alpine Avalanche)

H. v. Goisern / W. Staribacher    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Alpen glow in the tram
Edelweiss joy and yodler delusion
A loud green waistcoat
Embroidered with a black chamois

You're dreaming of old legends again
Very healthy mountain folk with sexy calves
Fresh blood for the urbane decadence
Summit stormer without consequence

Alpine Avalanche, Alpine Avalanche
It rolls up
Alpine Avalanche, Alpine Avalanche
It rolls up
And nothing stops it

It cannot be, what it just wants to be
A mountain is a mountain still
How do you do with the wellington boot?
I hit you with the Goisera

Alpine Avalanche, Alpine Avalanche
It rolls up
Alpine Avalanche, Alpine Avalanche
It rolls up
And nothing stops it

(It's coming down - watch out!)

Me No Got No

H. v. Goisern / W. Staribacher    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Me no got no shoes
Poor man!
Me no got no socks
Poor man!
Me no got no woman
Poor man!
Me no got no house
Poor man!

But I am still a lucky man
Cause I don't really give a damn
Oh my this long walk, oh my soon the summit must come into view

Me no got no electricity
Poor man!
Me no got no washing machine
Poor man!
Me no got no telephone
Poor man!
Me no got no synthesizer
Poor man!

But I am still a lucky man
Cause I don't really give a damn
Oh my this long walk, oh my soon the summit must come into view

It's All Over Now

Shirley and Bobby Womack

Baby used to stay out
all night long
She put me down
When she did me wrong
She hurt my eyes open
That's no lie
Tables turned
Now it's her turn to cry

Because I used to love her
But it's all over now

She used to hang around
With every man in town
Spent all my money
Trying to play that highclass-game
Put me down
What a pity how I cried
Tables turned
Now it's her turn to cry

Because I used to love her
But it's all over now

I used to wake up in the morning
Have my breakfast in the morning
When ever I got worried
She would rub my aching head
Now she's here and there
With every man in town
Still trying to take me
For that same old clown

Because I used to love her
But it's all over now

Gern Hab' Ich Die Frauen Geküsst (I Liked To Kiss The Women)

(from Lehar's Operette Paganini) Lehar / Knopler / Jenbach / Welleminsky    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

I know the true sin of fervour
I know how often falseness hurts too
I think back with laughter and tears
and look for fortune in intoxication, in exchange

I liked to kiss the women
never asked whether it was allowed
thought to myself
take them
just kiss them
that's why they're here

I liked to kiss the women
never asked whether it was allowed
thought to myself
take them
just kiss them
that's why they're here

I never took love seriously
I kissed passionately
but I was never very faithful
came as a man
suited me well
and didn't keep anyone too long either

I liked to kiss the women
never asked whether it was allowed
thought to myself
take them
just kiss them
that's why they're here

Get Up Dancing

H. v. Goisern / W. Staribacher    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

The time has come
the time is really ripe again
and I just can't stand it anymore
I get into the train
towards the countryside
'cause I'm fed up with the city

All day long
and the whole night
I just can't rest.
Everybody is constantly talking,
everything is always a confusion
and no one's listening anymore.


the lady looks charming though
and the gentlemen kisses her hand
all the time stylish
and terribly chic
but underneath they are rotten
and often already dead
so hurray for brass music!

It makes you Get Up,
Get Up Dancing
It makes you move your feet
It makes me Get Up,
Get Up Dancing
And I can feel the beat

I like Wagner
but I think Mozart's cool too
and I can't do without Strauß
Herbert von Karajan
I like a lot too
But the whole ado all around is disgusting

the lady looks charming though
and the gentlemen kisses her hand
all the time stylish
and terribly chic
but underneath they are rotten
and often already dead
so hurray for brass music!

It makes you Get Up,
Get Up Dancing
It makes you move your feet
It makes me Get Up,
Get Up Dancing
And I can feel the beat

Kren und Speck (Horseradish and Bacon)

H. v. Goisern / W. Staribacher    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Horseradish and bacon and stormy weather
a glass of schnapps and a ring of sausage
the waitress has quite a cleavage
and a half for my thirst

Spaghetti ca-ca-ca-ca carbonara
French ca-ca-ca-ca Camenbert
Chicken nuggets, mustard and ketchup mac mac mac Donald's
Sausage and bean sprouts please

Cocaine

Rev. Gary Davis

You take Sally and I take Sue
There ain't no difference between the two
Cocaine running 'round my brain

Going down Scott's, turning up Main
Looking for the girl who sells Cocaine
Cocaine running 'round my brain

Hey mother come here quick
That ol' Cocaine is making me sick
I got Cocaine running 'round my brain

One morning I went down to the hospital
And the doctor said: "Son, here it says you're 27 but that's impossible"
You must have Cocaine running 'round your brain

And yet another morning I woke up at the crack of dawn
I looked into the mirror and my nose was gone
Imagine my embarrassment, running round my brain

Hey mother come here quick
That ol' Cocaine is making me sick
I've got Cocaine running 'round my brain

Striptease Dancer

Sullivan / H. v. Goisern

I fell in love with a striptease-dancer
A black girl way down from Tanzania
I tried to escape her
but it wasn't any use
She turned me on
While I was singin' the blues
She was as sweet as honey
And she made love
For money

Of all the times that I had fallen in love
This girl really tore me apart
She soothed my pain
with some bottles of champagne
And we both dreamt of lives
In riches and fame
She was a cool cat
And a great lady
Sayin':
"I'm proud of my skin, but how 'bout you babe?"

I sang for her and she danced for me
Anything from Nightshift to Bobby McGee
And then one morning
I was lying in her bed
Humming away
Good bye Porkpie hat
And with her body glistening
And maybe Charlie listening

I fell in love with a striptease-dancer

(All these customers don't mean a thing to me babe, they can kiss my black ass ten times)
