Just you and me
Fuck flaunting fucking money (yeah, yeah)
Let's go for a walk
We only communicate via WhatsApp
Give me your hand and I'll show you my world
Baby, I know for sure you're gonna like it
I'm showing my weird face right from the start
I see, you just had a break-up, that's okay-ay
I'm gonna catch you, give you a cup of good vibes and no more headaches
Bae, tell me, are you really down with honesty in togetherness?
That's your decision to make
Do you want to be truly free
Be pure without ulterior motives?

[Kwam.e]
Tell me, are you down
When I drop by, are you down
When I come along with a huge heap of weed, are you down
If I can come in, best have a smoke, chill, you know, man
You neck goes knick-knack like crunching NicNacs1
Go ahead, pass the blunt when I've got some new weed
Kwam.e, an MC and a gold chain
This goes out to all the Ghanaian people: [...]
I'm Hamburg's number one like the TV channel
Have no fear, brothers and sisters
My lyrics are halal
I'm not down with your business 'cause your business ain't got no soul
I'm down with you if your bank account's been blocked
This nigga from the hood writing poems like Goethe
Kwam's got it going on like a farmer or shepherd2
I'm down with the shit like a jib dipping in a dip3
Deep down like a hobo desperately sipping his wine
 
2x:
Stop the self-hate, go grab the mic
And show your skills to everyone

Oh, hey, tell me, are you down with the sound, sound? (Yooo)
With the sound
Write a note to the neighbors, tell 'em it's gonna be noisy
There's already a neighbor at your door, Mr Sauerkraut (You again?)
Complaining and saying the music's too loud, loud, loud
Fuck that, please don't let that get you down
Better join us and leave it all behind, behind
Show your dreams to everyone [?]
We are where everybody is, but we help you fly4
 
Yo, tell me, are you down?
Are you down?

Yo, brother, are you down down?
 
  • 1. Crunchy peanuts.
  • 2. Pun. The German idiom literally translates to "to have (a) buck".
  • 3. For whatever that means.
  • 4. Hard to make sense of it when the German original is incomplete. Will fix this as soon as it's complete.

"Flexen" ist soviel wie "angeben"?

Dann trifft "angeben" es ja doch recht gut, ich hab die Zeile jetzt mit "Fuck flaunting your fucking money" (also rückübersetzt "Scheiß auf Angeben mit Scheißgeld") übersetzt.
