You have to be a pig (Du musst ein Schwein sein)

English translation

You have to be a pig

Versions: #1#2
I've always been very friendly, nice and kind,
Never got any woman into bed,
But then doing macho, cool and arrogant -
Suddenly they came running!
 
And again I see how things work in life:
He who is tough, loud and gets drunk,
Does better with the ladies.
Who would want a nice man?
 
You draw conclusions from it
And you switch to bad.
The world is a courtroom,
And the bad guys win their case.
 
Chorus:
You have to be a pig in this world,
To be a pig!
You have to be mean in this world,
To be mean!
Because if you want to go honestly through life,
Honestly,
You'll get a kick in the arse as a thankyou -
Dangerous!
 
Because I know I can get away with it
I everywhere push in the front.
And if someone is gentle and weak -
Listen how I laugh about!
 
I totally pull against
My friendly colleagues.
Though nobody likes me
I'll soon have a seat in the Bundestag.
 
You have to be a pig in this world,
To be a pig!
You have to be mean in this world,
To be mean!
Because if you want to go honestly through life,
Honestly,
You'll get a kick in the arse as a thankyou -
Dangerous!
Dangerous!
 
You have to be a pig in this world,
To be a pig!
You have to be mean in this world,
To be mean!
Because if you want to go honestly through life,
Honestly,
You'll get a kick in the arse as a thankyou -
Dangerous!
 
You have to be mean in this world,
You have to be a pig!

"Because I know I can afford it" => "Because I know I can get away with it"
