Jump into the Sludge [Get lost!] (Hupf in Gatsch)

English translation

Jump into the Sludge [Get lost!]

A blue-collar worker's driving home
from the tavern on his motorbike
eating cherries 'cause of his bad breath
and spits out the pits.
 
Suddenly, along comes a sports car
with a classy mister inside
who catches a pit with his eye
and of course it stinks a lot
 
Just at the next crossroads
he catches up with the bike,
and shouts in his anger
"You're such a pig!"
 
"You nasty sleazebag!"
The worker gets worked up,
spits out the last pit
and tells him "ya know what?..
 
Chorus:
Jump into the sludge
and go make waves there [dialect for get lost, i don't care]
But stop tormenting me here
Jump into the sludge
and leave me in peace,
or I'll go ahead and close your eyes...
 
I wouldn't even give a Schilling to a pathetic guy like you, [Schilling = ~ 7 euro cents]
no, wait, I'll give you two, 'cause you're a twin
Because one person alone can't possibly be that dorky
Jump into the sludge and dig yourself in... "
 
Later on when he comes home
his wife's already in bed
she grimaces and says
"Are you drunk again?
I can smell you from afar,
c'mon and get a shower!"
He takes of his shoes
and says "Oh c'mon shut up...
 
[Chorus]

First and most important: This is not Swiss-German, it's Wienerisch, the dialect spoken in Vienna, Austria.

You missunderstood something:

'Suddenly, along comes a sports car
with a classy mister inside
who catches a pit with his eye
and of course it stinks a lot - und fäu't natürlich sehr'

In this context, it means the man is pissed of.

e.g. "and is of course pissed of."

"[Such a brat like you, I'd give a Schilling], [Schilling = ~ 7 euro cents]
no, wait, I'll give you two, ['then] you're a twin
Because one person alone can't possibly be that dorky
Jump into the sludge and dig yourself in... "

But the rest is ok, good translation.
