09:52 am - Geiles Video
A few days ago I was surfing YouTube and came across the video for "Die Sonne scheint" by Die Apokalyptischen Reiter and was smitten by the song. The video too -- Fuchs bouncing around like a manic genie while gleefully singing "Die Sonne scheint mir aus dem Arsch" makes me smile every time I watch it. (Plus I think he's kind of cute too.) So I thought I'd share this bouncy little ditty, along with the lyrics and translation thereof for the non-German-speakers who read this LJ. (Translation note: "Die Sonne scheint mir aus dem Arsch" is a somewhat idiomatic expression that translates more-or-less to the English saying "Everything's coming up roses" but I'm using the literal translation in my lyric translation -- because that phrase amuses me so much!)







Die Sonne scheint

Kein schlechter Gedanke soll mich heut’ ereilen
Möchte in Frieden diesen Orte weihen
Will an der Schöpfung Schönheit mich ergötzen
Und mir als Maß die Freiheit setzen.

Frohsinn soll mich heut begleiten
Will nicht an Schmerz und Kummer leiden
Der Augenblick ist heilig – freilich
Ich hab’s nicht eilig.

Die Sonne scheint mir aus dem Arsch
Und das ohne Unterlass
Bin heut all der Dinge Freund
Heute träum ich nicht
Heut lebe ich was geträumt.

Will mich heute nicht verstecken
An des Lebens süßem Flusse lecken
Der Tisch ist heute reich gedeckt
Mit Wundern die noch nicht entdeckt.

Muss ein Abenteuer noch bestehen
Vielleicht mit einem Weibe gehen
Will an ihrem Busen saugen
Und fallen in ihre tiefen Augen.

Die Sonne scheint uns aus dem Arsch
Und das ohne Unterlass
Wir sind heut all der Dinge Freund
Wir träumen nicht, wir leben, leben
Leben was geträumt.


No crappy thoughts will overtake me today
In tranquility shall I dedicate this place
I will delight in the beauty of creation
And I stand as the measure of liberty

Merriment shall accompany me today
Naught that is painful or sorrowful will be borne
The moment is sacred -- certainly
I have no hurry.

The sun is shining from my ass
And that without surcease
I'm friends with everything today
Today I'm not dreaming,
Today I live what was dreamt of.

Today I don't want to hide
As life's sweet flow slips past
The table is richly decked today
With marvels that are yet unknown.

Adventure still awaits me
Perhaps to have a wife
I'll suckle on her bosom
And tumble into her deep eyes.

The sun is shining from our asses
And that without surcease
We're friends with everything today
We aren't dreaming, we're living, living
Living what was dreamt of.

Translation isn't finished yet -- I'm writing it line by line now and posting it as I go.

Now you know why I like the song -- it's fun and positive and BOUNCY! :D

Lol. You're great at translating. And once again I see how much I prefer the english language. :)

One little thing: Wouldn't it be "the sun is shining from our asses"?

Thanks for the compliment! :D

I was afraid I'd made a mess of some of the translating, since some things in German don't go into English that well. And thanks for pointing out the error -- I missed it during the proof-reading. :-/

~~ corrects the mistake ~~
