Track Name: Monkey
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
Track Name: The First One
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)
Track Name: Rukelie
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!
