Friday Song

music-2087771_960_720

Sorry… again I managed to schedule my Friday song a week later… I hope you still accept it!

Another 80’s song to end this week. I was surprised that when I was in the States the last time, I heard an English version of a song of one of Austria’s most famous artists, Falco (Amadeus). The English version seems to be well known, so, I decided to share the original German version which is partly in Viennese dialect since he was Viennese. Happy Friday!

Der Kommissar – Falco

Lyrics from the English version:

Zwei drei vier one two three
Its easy to see
But its not that I don’t care so
Cause I hear it all the time
But they never let you know
On the TV and the radio
She was young her heart was pure
But every night is bright she got
She said sugar is sweet
She come rappin’ to the beat
Then I knew that she was hot

She was singin
Don’t turn around, oh oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, oh oh
You’re in his eye
And you’ll know why
The more you live
The faster you will die

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

She said babe you know
I miss Jill and Joe
And all my funky friends
But my street understanding
was just enough to know what she really meant
And I got to thinking while she was talking
That I know she told the story
Of those special places that she goes
When she rides with the others in the subway

Singin’
Don’t turn around, oh oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, oh oh
And if he talks to you
And you don’t know why
You say your life
Is gonna make you die…

Alles klar, Herr Kommissar?

Well we meet Jill and Joe
And brother Herr
And the whole cool gang (and oh)
They’re rappin’ here they’re rappin’ there
But she’s climbin’ on the wall
Its a clear case, Herr Kommissar
Cause all the children know
They’re all slidin’ down into the valley
They’re all slipping on the same snow

Hear the children
Don’t turn around, oh oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, oh oh
He’s got the power
And you’re so weak
And you’re frustration will not let you speak

Don’t turn around, oh oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, oh oh
And if he talks to you
Then you’ll know why
The more you live
The faster you will die

Don’t turn around, oh oh
Der Kommissar’s in town, oh oh
(repeat x5)
