Bei Merkels unterm Sofa

Uploaded on Jul 5, 2017

At Merkel's under the sofa: 02/08/2017, I've updated the song, added a drum set, a bass and a harmonica solo.
is a satirical song about our Chancellor Angela Merkel. It refers to her birth in the former GDR, and her experiences, which inevitably have been shaped by the dogmatic ideology of the Soviet Union and which I believe still determine her political actions.

Here is the literal translation:

1st verse
At Merkel's under the sofa is,
the cold war at home,
Relaxation unfortunately a trick,
but there's no charge for it.

At Merkel's place under the sofa are
as friends all the same.
What does dictatorship mean?
in our heavenly kingdom?


Europe is looking,
like Merkel's under the sofa,
Poles stay out of trouble,
Erdoan drives a Stasi moped,
Yanks sniffing, she's watching.
how to spy on us
and crushes this EU
it just seems to matter,
when the Russians spread fake news
march on populists
and the Putin Troll is pleased
to annex our world.

2nd verse

At Merkel's under the sofa
is still GDR,
America the period of grace
that she won't give away.

At Merkel's under the sofa
the old bogeyman is still alive:
if all you do is stick to the West.
you escape from this yoke.


3rd verse

At Merkel's under the sofa
I can't think of anything else to say.
Only black zeros
and halos bought for money.
