i’m going pissed to church and sing
the russian national hymn
i like to fart in libraries
and i do it with a grin

fuck fuck fuck my best friend’s girl
and tell him she’s a slag
and in a crowded aeroplane
i love to use the bag

i’m mean, i’m bad, i lie to you
i never tell the truth
set fire to your bed at night
and i shit into your boot

so if you ever should think for yourself
how nice it would be oh so nice
rip off your sister’s teddy-bear
stay rude - that’s my advice

selling dope to teenage kids
is the biggest fun
the money i get out of it
enough to buy a gun

i steal old ladies handbags
and I drink the last beer
i nick my bosses’ jaguar
and sell it much to dear

i’m mean, i’m bad, i lie to you
i never tell the truth
set fire to your bed at night
and i shit into your boot

so if you ever should think for yourself
how nice it would be oh so nice
rip off your sister’s teddy-bear
stay rude - that’s my advice

i still can remember the first time i saw you
you were standing just right in front of me
down in the supermarket in the queue
you looked so pretty good and wonderful

i tried to talk to you and said 'hello'
but when you turned around something was wrong
you looked at me with your wonderful eyes
you became to scream and run away

is it true what they say?
your nose is too long
is it true what they say?
your ears are too big
is it true what they say that my hair is allright
but my third eye belongs to the other side?

i tried to find out what was wrong with my face
cause i couldn't believe what everybody told me
it is really impossible and hard to believe
but when i tried to take a look the mirror broke

is it true what they say?
your ass is too fat
is it true what they say?
you got smelly feet
is it true what they say that my hair is allright
but my third eye belongs to the other side?

when i walked trough the streets i had a strange feeling
all the people had disappeared where i was about
when i woke up next morning i saw the headline
"there is a monster in town - so people should stay at home"

is it true what they say?
your nose is too long
is it true what they say?
your ears are too big
is it true what they say that my hair is allright
but my third eye belongs to the other side?

is it true what they say?
your ass is too fat
is it true what they say?
you got smelly feet
is it true what they say that my hair is allright
but my third eye belongs to the other side?

angel make you feel so fine
sweetheart i see you everyday
baby but i don’t know what to say

girl you’re my sweet desire
angel i’m burning like fire
sweetheart sleepless nights without you
baby i don’t dare to ask you

should i ask my father
or should i ask my mother
should i tell my friends
or should i tell anyone else

go for it - i’m stronger everyday
go for it - it takes time but i’ll make it on my own

darling i wanna make you mine

tell me if i'm dreaming
ooh i can't believe my eyes
or is it just an illusion
is my brain telling me lies

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

and my heartbeat's going fast
but i'm not the only one
at the windows in the neighborhood
the panic's going on

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

watching every step she makes
is like lightning in the sky
the perfect way she moves her body
makes me wanna cry

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
walking down the street
ooh she's a sharp dressed girl
she's got everything i need

sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl
sharp dressed girl

come on let’s cross the USA
where cars drive slow not fast
come on let’s get arrested
and lay down in the grass

the way up to chicago
is nice all quiet and peace
sometimes you get kicked in your butt
by the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

get pulled over to the side
get pointed with a gun
cause you might be or you could be
a gangster on the run

and now as you are a suspect
you won’t get no release
cause you got into trouble
with the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know this is our goddamn job
and we do as we please
you know we’re proud to serve the law
cause we’re the illinois state police

you know we’re proud to serve the law

i walk alone in a messy street at night
got dynamite in my baby-buggy
i walk the road to the place i hate the most
you better get out of my way

i set fire to the tax-office tonight
set fire to the tax-office

i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy

they tax your gas, they tax the girls you need to buy
but now i’ve had enough of that
they tax my voice, they tax this song you’re listening to
tonight they will feel my revenge

i set fire to the tax-office tonight
set fire to the tax-office
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy

i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy

i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - crazy
i go crazy - so crazy
i go crazy - crazy

i’m not an ordinary boy
but i could be your little toy
just bring me little honey
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

don’t want no zero-bonds
nor do i need some investment-fonds
no golden rings
just give me candy
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

biscuit cake
or a delicious season’s flake
just add a little honey
and i will stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

salt and vinegar chips
bewitch me more than politics
and if they’re spicey and red hot
i will stick on you
i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

chocolate chips
make me go out of my mind my dear
be careful if you have some honey
cause i might stick on you

(ich klebe an dir fest)

i’m a maniac
if you play with my cherry cake
i would rob just for a donut
or a hot chocolate

i get my kicks out of crispy pan cakes
i would die for a custard cream
and if you wanna catch my milka heart
there’s only one thing you have to do

just bring me little muffins
or a marshmallow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

muffins
or a marshmellow-pie
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

candy
just bring me a little honey
i will show you paradise
if you take me for a ride on your chocolate bar

muffins

mickey mouse in Moscow pornos sold at GUM’s
the russians all go crazy, their government went punk
gorbatchev wears DMs, gromyko looks real mosh
instead the international hymn Bob Marley and Peter Tosh

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

police are growing dreadlocks, the army’s on vacation
the KGB smokes homegrown grass like the rest of the soviet nation
red square full of burger kings, komsmolski kids on dope
gimme gimme vodka all the russians sing, abandon any hope

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

meanwhile back in the western block russian fashion’s up to date
join your local brioska shop before it is too late
throw away your trendy clothes, get yourself new gear
furcoats, feltboots, furcaps - perestroika is here

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

forget old marx and lenin
who cares about the old farts
let’s party at the kremlin
and skank down in gorki park

summertime is back in town
time to get your scooter out
winter days are far away
you're take it for a ride

show them all your custom bits
get your chromate gats polished
seaside runs will come again
and you will meet all your friends

your scooter looks just like a mess
although you tried your very best
somebody stole your pork pie hat
your girlfriend moved to switzerland
and i beg she?s got a new boyfriend

soundsystems are back in town
blasting out the sharpest sound
club events and all-nighters
getting dressed up really cool

having fun and getting pissed
is what you have so long missed
take your chance and join the fun
and keep on dancin' all night long

your scooter looks just like a mess
although you tried your very best
somebody stole your pork pie hat
your girlfriend moved to switzerland
and i beg she?s got a new boyfriend

summertime is back in town

here is the band this is our song
we’ll have a party all night long
smoking drinking all night thru’
we act as people expect us to

here today to rock this town
dancing acting like a clown
and what you see is what you get
girls we want your t-shirts drenched in sweat

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

we do our job by day and night
we’ve seen all bars and kentucky fried
a thousand miles in a row
just to play tonight’s show

speed tickets cause drunken nights
police controls we don’t like
girls if you like us give us a kiss
tell your boys to take a piss

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

pretty girls are everywhere
about their guys we don’t care
so you all came to see the show
there’s one thing that we wanna know

are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or alive? - take a chance take a dance
are you dead or alive? - busters rock this town tonight
are you dead or are you alive

are you dead or alive?
are you dead or alive?
are you dead or alive?
are you dead? are you alive?

dead? are you alive?
dead? are you dead or alive?
