Drawig (Rush)

Music: Hubert von Goisern / Burkhard Frauenlob
Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern     [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

When I, when I get my hands on you
I can't, I can't say if I won't strangle you

When I, when I get my hands on you
I can't, I can't ever say what will happen

Because in a rush, in a rush, in a rush,
We're in a rush these days
Much more in a rush than even yesterday and tomorrow
We've no time either

Do I love, do I love you - or
Don't I, don't I, don't I love you?
Are we, are we, are we at war again?

Or are we, are we, are we OK
and are we going out together again?

But in a rush, in a rush, in a rush,
We're in a rush these days
Much more in a rush than even yesterday
And tomorrow I'll have even less time.

Let's go, let's go, let's go......

Everyone says it's too late already
And yet work is just too uninteresting for them
And yet it's just simply too uninteresting

Da Dåsige (The Native)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

A square of meadow
In the middle a green tree
Why have I got the girl
If I can´t reach her

Girl you want me to be
Smashed steel lantern
Tear eyed water sheep
Let me stay free

Does anyone at all understand what I sing
Does anyone get what I say
Maybe it's as if somebody thinks
I am not a native

Whether here or there does not matter at all
It might be cosy this way
Here might be there if you are on this side
And girls are in any place

But girl I do know you yet
If you get me, you'll already be gone
Go with the devil babe
Please stay away

Please tell me if you are clear in mind
Wherever you look - everyside
So many beautiful girls, that it's over and done
No wonder, I think I'm going wild

Don't shake it like you do, don't wobble like you do
Let us stay real quiet
Don't you shake it like you do, don't wobble like you do
That nobody notices us

Boys, stand together in a circle
I tell you what I know
Light yourself a pipe
Who is able to smoke it

I think it's happening again
I can't take it anymore
Everyone laments and it's raining so much
That it's really terrible

There I sit and I think all day
What would be the best for me
A hole in my head or should I hang myself
Or jump off a mountain

Over the lake, over the lake
My doves fly
And now I have to cross myself
Collect the feathers - but

Country dance
Clap and sing - instead of
Collecting feathers
Would be much better

Tell me are you smart
You sit here quiet all the time
In your room and moan
And don't go out in the sun
Always just moaning, moaning, moaning

You smoked something yesterday
And again today
If you smoke something every day
You'll get on my nerves

Katholisch (Catholic)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Hey, what's up, let's go
Today we're starting again
The girls are waiting outside
And each needs a man
Or wouldn't it be smarter
To run right away
My balls are on fire
Just from watching them

I wish I was a little more catholic
Then it would all be very simple
I'd just go to church every Sunday
I'd step before the clergyman on Sunday
Confess my sins and be free of them

And how she passes me by
I soon feel really bad
And when one of them talks to me
my knees tremble
tell me is this normal
or is it just me
because this has always been like that
I can't do anything about it

I wish I was a little more catholic
Then it would all be very simple
I'd just go to church every Sunday
I'd step before the clergyman on Sunday
Confess my sins and be free of them

For we all know that every priest has,
Behind his altar
A woman that he prays to, a woman that snuggles him,
Or even two.

Da Diab (The Thief)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

I thought to myself
Today I'll come
To you
I need someone
Who talks to me
Someone who holds me
Someone I can feel

And when it's getting dark
It's nicer together than being alone

I want to feel you
I want to love you
I want to have you
I want to get you
I want you completely
I want you today
I want you now

Because eternity is nothing for us
And the day is already over
And the night is still young

Only the wind in the trees
Knows what we're going to do

But I feel like a thief
Girl - of your love

Ång'låcht (Smiled)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

She touched me
With her eyes
I felt a bit embarrassed

Then she smiled at me
When passing by
There it had already happened

Eyes as deep as a lake
I completely fell down

Since then I haven't slept
Dream all day long

I'm so far that I regret
It can't go on like this

Eyes so big
And as clear as a lake
And I loved falling in
I lost my self inside
But much deeper than ever
Who will help me out again

There I swim and I dream

Spåt (Late)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Good night, it's late already
They're turning the lights off
Cover yourself up, lay down beside me
And let's fall asleep

Fön

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

All you want can happen
As long as you know what you want
Turn around and walk away
Before you take too long

But often I just can't accept that
And then I get a headache
And since things always turn out differently anyway
As it seems to me
I often get a headache

Holy Mary, mother of God -
What a day this is today
Wasn't really worth getting up for

Everywhere it's beautiful
Just not here with me
No matter where I am
The sun never shines for me
(just for the others all the time)
And when it shines for once
When it clears up a bit - when the fön blows
Then straightaway I get a headache again

Kålt (Cold)

Hey, you talk like someone who knows what's what,
You know your way around
(there's not much there!)
We're lucky that you found us
we can't do without someone like you.

I'm cold and getting colder
and that's got nothing, nothing to do with the weather
I've got to get away from here fast, fast
sooner, sooner rather than later

I'm cold and getting colder
and that's got nothing, nothing to do with the weather
I've got to get away from here fast, fast
sooner, sooner rather than later

So, what's up with you?
Have you lost perspective now?
Are you playing at being hurt?
Hey, even you don't believe that.
Oh please, please don't say now that you want to finish it and leave

Ah! That's just your new line
Hey, you're practically a genius
and we're so stupid
and never even realise it

I'm so cold and getting colder
and that's got nothing, nothing to do with the weather
I've got to get away from here fast, fast
sooner, sooner rather than later

You give my whole life meaning
Although I'm such a nobody
Only when the ship sinks
I stand there and look really stupid

I'm cold and getting colder
and that's got nothing, nothing to do with the weather
I've got to get away from here fast, fast
sooner, sooner rather than later
I'm cold!
I'm cold!

Die Stråss'n (The Roads)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

People still always say
that the time before was better - hm, maybe.
Only that does nothing for us
because what's past is past - long past.

There's nothing true that's not a lie, too.
And everything that's right isn't any good
because it's the same roads
that take you home or away.

If you've never been afraid,
you'll never try anything.
And if you've never loved anyone,
you've never been alone.
It's the same roads
that take you home or away.

Weh Toan Tuat's Auf Jeden Fall (It Hurts In Any Case)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Sometimes I think of you
And imagine what it would be like with us now
But you can imagine nearly everything
Just thinking nothing is so difficult

Outside the finest flowers blossom,
Summer started long ago
But inside of me there lies still the snow,
I feel cold and afraid

It would be easiest to forget
That we are over, I know that
Things that were will never come back
But it hurts in any case

Sometimes my friends ask me
What you're doing now and how you are
And then I say that everything is all right
Because I don't dare tell the truth

Just don't show that something hurts
That I still love her
Just don't weep, don't cry
Except if nobody can see.

Mercedes Benz

Music & Lyrics: Janis Joplin / Michael McClure / Bobby Neuwirth
German lyrics: Hubert von Goisern     [ORIGINAL LYRICS]

Oh lord, now buy me a Mercedes Benz
I need a car, but a nice one, please
I worked all my life, still there's nothing left
Oh lord, just a Daimler and I'd be content

Oh lord, I just came up with one more thing
I know I'm annoying you and you really don't have to
It just would be nice
If you'd grant me this, too
Oh lord, I ask you for eternal life

Oh lord, now just the halo is missing
It doesn't cost you anything and I would like it
It would be simpler for me, because one thing is certain
With a halo, you have much better success.

Fia Di (For You)

Music: Hubert von Goisern | Lyrics: Hubert von Goisern
[ORIGINAL LYRICS]

As long as I don't lose you
As long as I know you belong to me
As long as I feel you by me
It can never be so cold that I freeze

Like the feathers of the birds
Are only useful when they fly
We can only be what we are
If we love each other

Whether it's raining - or the wind blows
Or if the snow is falling down
Water and fire pass away
But our love will still remain

Beautiful girls, there are so many, but
None comfort me like you
If I were to start again from the beginning
I would need you too

Even if our ways
Do not always fit
We have always found each other again

Like the feathers of the birds
Are only useful when they fly
We can only be what we are
If we love each other

And when I sing this song
The wind will carry it, wherever I am
Over the mountains, over the water
To you
