Koa Hiatamadl (Shepherd Girls)

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

Oh my, oh my
When I look at a girl
Then I know for sure
That she's got to be round
And a bit tasty
oh my

My, oh my,
Most of the girls are beanpoles
scrawny and scraggy as you like it
My, oh my,
I could never have one like that

I don't like a shepherd girl
(she) doesn't have fat legs
I like a girl from the city
Who has fat legs

My, oh my
Moni with the red hair
is prettier now than last year
Has just
Not little on the scales

My, oh my
I know Ann-Marie already
and would rather run away from her.
There's nothing on her
Not behind and not from the front

I don't like a shepherd girl
(she) doesn't have fat legs
I like a girl from the city
Who has fat legs

Beautiful are the country dances
Beautiful are the alpine wreaths
Up on your hat
When the accordion plays beautifully

Wildschütz Räp (Poacher's Rap)

H. v. Goisern    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

On a beautiful Sunday very early in the morning
The poacher ties his coarsely-sewn shoes
He goes up the mountain with his old Waffenrad
Because a mountain bike is only for a weak calf

A few hours later the hunter is drinking his coffee
Suddenly there is a bang up in the heights
Reserl says: "Franz don't put up with this
Everybody who shoots in our mountains must pay"

Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridladi
Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridla
Holladjauridladleidiadjeidiadjauridiridldüå

Franz, not being a boring man climbs up the wall
and finds the poacher with a knife in his hand
He shot a chamois, that is not allowed
This baby does not even have a driver's licence

He shouts at him: "It is over with you
Because I am the hunter and the chamois is mine
I am the sheriff, I am the forester
But into the heavens you go first

Do what I tell you boy, keep silent
You wouldn't be the first one to fall down
Put on your hat, throw down your rifle
Now nothing will ever help you"

Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridladi
Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridla
Holladjauridladleidiadjeidiadjauridiridldüå

There's lightning and thunder, it rattles and bangs
You hear how the poacher laughs
There he's gone, there flies a stone
And hits the hunter's shin bone

But once I have him, he won't escape me
But once I have him, he won't escape me
But once I have him, he won't escape me
He won't escape me

What a real poacher is, he has hunting in his blood
His place is up in the mountain and his hat is dashing

Down in the valley there's a cow
but unfortunately the boy's just drinking hard
And after a few schnapps and after a few beers
He suddenly sees two cows

Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridladi
Holladjauridladi, Holladjauridla
Holladjauridladleidiadjeidiadjauridiridldüå

Heast As Nit (Can't You Hear)

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

Can't you hear
how the time flies
Huidiei jodleiri Huidiridi

Just yesterday
People talked very differently
Huidiei jodleiridldüeiouri

The young have become old
and the old have died
Duliei, Jodleiridldudieiouri

And yesterday has become today
and today is soon tomorrow
Huidiei jodleiri huidiridi

Can't you hear
Can't you hear
Huideridiri
Hollareiridiridldoueio hållouri

Can't you hear, how the time flies
Can't you hear, how the time flies

Ich brauche keine $ (I Don't Need Any $)

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

At early dawn
the first siskin sings
And I'm overjoyed
that the week is beginning
Because work is fun for me
much more fun than anything else

I need stress and action
Adrenalin in my blood
At bluffing and poker
I'm unbelievably good

Ah, how great that everyone knows
my name

Every year I buy myself
a new cabriolet
My girlfriend is a model
and made of snow
Ah, how great that everyone knows
my name

I don't need any dollars!
I count in Marks
80 million
like Hans Alber so strong
I have women, I have money
wonderful world

I am strong and I am handsome
From Berlin to Vienna

I have my own tricks
Hollareduliä!

Kurt Gib Nicht Auf (Kurt, Don't Give Up)

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

Up on my mountain peak
I've been sitting now for a few years
the fog brightens
and it's suddenly crystal clear to me

The madness only increases
and the problems get bigger
yes, even the chamois are stressed
and become more nervous from day to day

In my head dance
loud little dwarves
and all my friends
are long gone over the mountain

But as I sit and stare
on this bare cliff
Like Mohammed I hear
a voice clearly above me

Kurt don't give up
when things don't go right
Just don't give up
You'll survive

Kurt don't give up
sit with us and drink
The world looks to you
you're a hero - yeah, yeah
the world looks to you
you're a hero

A week ago
it was the middle of the night
in my bed
I woke drenched in sweat

There was a terrible rattling
I thought "you're nuts"
before me stood a man
"Presenting Lucifer"

Flabberghasted and dazed
I began to stutter
"The fridge with the beer
is over th-th-there"

But the Devil doesn't care
He wants my blood for his thirst
and shows me his fangs
yodelling began inside me

Kurt don't give up
when things don't go right
Just don't give up
You'll survive

Kurt don't give up
sit with us and drink
The world looks to you
you're a hero - yeah, yeah
the world looks to you
you're a hero

Sepp Bleib Do (Sepp, Stay Here)

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

Gold, platinum and diamond
burning hot desert sand
in the foreign legion
they don't need religion

Communists, Hindus
Moslems or Christians
Each one gets to the kingdom of Heaven
when we're in, we're all the same

Sepp stay here
You're terribly tired
and don't know what the weather will do
Sepp stay here
They'll strangle you there
Stay here

Perestroika, Gorbachev
Soviet Russia, Mazeltov
Everyone should wear a Rolex
and have something to eat at last

Michael Jackson, Coca Cola
and Ivan feels better
schapps and whisky on the shelf
free choice

Sepp stay here
You're terribly tired
and don't know what the weather will do
Sepp stay here
They'll strangle you there
Stay here

Weit, Weit Weg (Far, Far Away)

H. v. Goisern    [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

The days are shorter now
and leaves are falling from the trees
and on the pasture, there's already snow

A cold wind blows from the mountains
the sun has already set
and I would like to have you near me

You're now so far, far away
so far, far away from me
It hurts me and how

You were like the summer wind
blowing through my hair
like a warm rain on the skin

I still smell your wet hair
I still feel your hand on my face
and how you look deep into my eyes

You're now so far, far away
so far, far away from me
It hurts me and how

Now it's nearly a month since
we held each other
and sank into each other's arms

Sometimes it seems like yesterday to me
and sometimes like an eternity
and sometimes I worry it was a dream

You're now so far, far away
so far, far away from me
It hurts me and how
