13 small monkeys (13 kleine Affen)

English translation

13 small monkeys

The moon shines pale through the vines
He's sad, you can easily see it
What he sees today, stricken by sorrow and pain,
Is the last act of the tragedy
 
13 small monkeys
Who met in the jungle tonight
Have a heartache, even in their small hearts
And they scream: "Diwi, Diwa, Diwubaba!"
 
13 small monkeys
Cannot sleep at night anymore
They all love one and the same sweet monkey woman
 
She is enjoying the situation
I call it a monkey shame!
 
13 small monkeys
Want to get rat poison now
But have mercy
With the 13 monkeys
You evil monkey woman!
 
[Instrumental]
 
All around the jungle you can hear vows of revenge
"She has to go, the Pompadour!"
From the leopard to the colibri
They are all embittered - but how!
 
13 small monkeys
Who met in the jungle tonight
Have a heartache, even in their small hearts
And they scream - oh, they scream!

13 kleine Affen

Durch die Lianen schimmert der Mond so bleich.
Er ist betrübt, man merkt es gleich.
Was er heut' sieht, von Kummer und Schmerz gepackt,
Ist der Tragödie letzter Akt.
