The famous rider of the car race Is in lead he's gonna make the first place But then - What happened? - something mysterious So strange that no one will take me serious He pushes the brake and drives on the side As he reaches the homestrait in the last of the laps With the audience on the left and the track on the right He gets off and does a few jamaican dance steps You see the monkey and he's groovin high You see him skippin but you don't know why Have you ever wondered why he's in that Sunlight and a raincloud is above your head Recently at the supermarket checkout The cashier just wanted to have a time out Right before a lady with the size of a tank And a fur she stood up and took a little skank "Get back to your work" said the lady in the fur I said she has no fault she's just a rude girl "Did I ask you?" No! "You impudent fool" Shut up - go away and remember what I say You see the monkey and she's groovin high You see her skippin but you don't know why Have you ever wondered why she's in that Sunlight and a raincloud is above your head

There's a sentence that says let's stay friends But the meaning is never be seen again Boy you get confused like in a turning wheel You need experience young love is not for real There's no love for life there is no friendship forever That's how it always is you're losing sight of each other These are four rules of life of four hundred and five And nobody did ever manage to break them Okay, so I'll be the first one (The first one) For if it is impossible it's getting time (for it to be done) Furthermore much fun in your life (your normal life) Mine might get difficult but so cool (so fucking nice) That hated "Kevin on Board"-Sticker on a car You'll have that too, either you want it or your girl Forget about your dreams become a lawyer I say Cause there is no money making with music today If you wanna have success, you and your band Gotta concentrate on just on music style, man These are three rules of four hundred and five And nobody did ever manage to break them Okay, so we'll be the first one (The first one) For if it is impossible it's getting time (for it to be done) Furthermore much fun in your life (your normal life) Ours might get difficult but so cool (so fucking nice)

This is a text, not like the others you know from this band This is a story, not like the others, rageous and sad But it must be told, though you could say it´s old, But it happened in the country that I live in It´s the story of man named Rukelie Kind of lasts til now, therefore I´m singing: 1907, he was born to a german sinto family He became a boxer, when he was older, and the fans nicknamed him Rukelie He was known for the show, even during the fight He communicated with the girls in the first row And his style was unseen, dance, dodge and speed, Some thousand came to see him win in the box halls His roots have always brought him trouble But then in ´33 the Nazis came to power Their blond tall heros were hit to k. o. By a gypsy, so he became a danger Only the audience stopped the referees to cheat him When he won the championchip, but some days later They took the title away again, the tears of victory Had been misrable behaviour Next fight. They said to him: "Gypsy if you dare to win, We´re going to get your family!" Cause they knew how much he loved them He entered the ring, hair dyed blond, body dusted with flour His silent protest, he without defending, let himself be beat to the ground He had to leave his family and hide in the woods, But they found him, and send him to the frontline And then to a concentration camp, when they found him come backe alive "Show what you can!" said the guards when they trashed The powerless man, and one night He was shot to death and sank into the mud, he had defended himself a last time In this time was there anybody askin when they heard Of the fate of Rukelie and a million more? And whats taking place in todays Nazis Is there any kind of feeling, a heart, a soul? My shame for the past and present, my rage, My violence on you in this song And now just for you idiots: La musique de la resistance! Swing!
