Hans Söllner - Mir san nu so richtige Bayern (English translation)

English translation

We're still true to the bone bavarians

We're still true to the bone bavarians
We reek of cowshed and brandy (1)
We drink like a fish and are fans of TSV 1860' Munich (2)
By nightfall we go scaling windows (3)
With oatboots and a hat (4)
And the prussian, if he dares to open his mouth (4a)
That's his bad luck, he's gonna spit blood (5)
And the prussian, if he dares to open his mouth
That's his bad luck, he's gonna spit blood
 
In winter we go snowboarding
Across the rossfeld like a bat out of hell (6)
And if someone gets in our way
We're gonna run him over, with great precision
 
We love our freedom
And love to fuck while drunk
A pinch of snuff before the evening news
And every day three liters of booze
A pinch of snuff before the evening news
And every day three liters of booze
 
The speedometer shows 100
It's not gonna work out, Sepp, we gotta reverse
I think we didn't kill the dog completely
I think he was twitching still
 
Today we're gonna go without helmet
We've only just started
Today we're gonna run over a few refugees
With our BMW
 
Saturday we go to the disco
To beat up those hippie cannabis smokers
This rabble that never gets a real job
Turning our hard-earned money into smoke
We love our forests dearly
And the Watzmann, only after a climb. (6a)
 
In wintertime, we don't shower at all
And in summertime, we go swimming in the lake
In wintertime, we don't shower at all
And in summertime, we go swimming in the lake
 
We only eat roast pork and belly porc fat
With ketchup and fries
Our names are Sepp and Franz
And Huber or Schmitt
We ride to the octoberfest on our city bikes
But still have a Mountainbike
 
If you're a trueblood bavarian
You gotta go with the trend
If you're a trueblood bavarian
You don't just own a city bike
Man, you're riding a mountainbike
 
The speedometer shows 100
It's not gonna work out, Sepp, we gotta reverse
I think we didn't kill the dog completely
I think he was twitching still
 
Today we're gonna go without helmet
This is just getting really good
Today we're gonna run over a few refugees
With our A.M.E chopper
 
We're still true to the bone bavarians
And hard like german steel
Count us in, for every sort of joke
Which proves the last election results
We're still true to the bone bavarians
With muscles, charme and smarts
 
We make every mistake three times
But never seem to learn from it
We make every mistake three times
But never seem to learn from it, crucifix ! (7)

Author's comments:

In this song, Hans Söllner plays on typical bavarian stereotypes.
-----------------
(1) Schnaps, german brandy made from distilling fruits.
(2) "1860 munich" munich soccer club, that by many bavarians is regarded as a "truer" bavarian soccer club, not an international enterprise like "bayern münchen".
(3) "Fensterln", a practice where the suitor climbed up to the window to talk to his maid, when her father would not allow him inside, or let them go out together.
(4a) prussians and bavarians traditionally don't go along very well.
(4) Typical Bavarian hat, either a hunter's hat or "Gamsbart Hut"
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gamsbart
or a more funny looking pointed grey hat made from felt, with a blue or blue-white cord.

(5) "spit blood", meaning they're gonna hit him in the face
(6) Rossfeld, a ski resort near munich
http://www.rossfeld.info/
(6a) Watzmann, 3rd highest peak in germany in the bavarian alps.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watzmann
(7) crucifix ! or short "Cifix!", a bavarian slur, since its a deeply catholic culture.
