In a sky-blue small limousine (In der himmelblauen kleinen Limousine)

English translation

In a sky-blue small limousine

In a sky-blue small limousine
Luck was sitting as a sweet, blonde passenger
And I waved at her
And in a flash she had already passed me by.
 
Alarmed I called out loud: "Hallo, blonde!"
And I followed her in a taxi
Until I finally succeeded
Because thank God I finally caught up.
 
But when she stopped in front of her house
A drama had nearly happened
Because her husband, he got off as well
Out of love I had overseen him.
 
In a sky-blue small limousine
Luck was sitting as a sweet, blonde passenger
And I waved at her
And in a flash she had already passed me by.
 
Daily at the same hour I wait for her now
But fate wants it, I never see her
But I am I not a talented writer
And even if I had no luck, I cheekily made
A song out of it.

In der himmelblauen kleinen Limousine

In der himmelblauen kleinen Limousine
Saß das Glück als süßer, blonder Passagier,
Und ich winkte ihm zu,
Aber im Nu fuhr er schon vorbei an mir.

I think this line in the last stanza in incomplete:
"But I am I not a talented writer"

"ein Dichter, dem die Muse lacht" is something like a poet who has been blessed by the muse. I thought "talented" would be a short way to put that.
