Only of myself (Nur an mich)

English translation

Only of myself

In the mornings when I awake
It's my mirror to which I say:
It is great
So great
That you exist
I (pinkel?) now I stand
I see everything else
All men lie behind be
 
Over me
Usually under me
With all
Yes, with all the trimmings
 
Mostly I think just of myself
I'd prefer I were there,
Wherever you are
How I would love to tell you everything,
But my courage lets me down every time
Mostly I think just of myself
Mostly I think just of you
 
The flower bouquet
Flies so beautifully out the window
It is wonderful that I exist
Your new favourite book
Does as good as a handkerchief
I wanted so much more from you
Mostly I think just of myself
 
Mostly I think just of myself
I'd prefer I were there,
Wherever you are
How I would love to tell you everything,
But my courage lets me down every time
Mostly I think just of myself
Mostly I think just of you
 
And I ask myself
I for you
Or
Only for myself
And I ask you
Only for me
Or
Also for yourself?
 
ah ah ah ah ah ah
aho aho aho aho
aho aho aho
 
Mostly I just think...
 
Mostly I think just of myself
I'd rather I were there,
Wherever you are
How I would love to tell you everything,
But my courage lets me down every time
Mostly I think just of myself
Mostly I think just of you
 
How I would love to tell you everything,
But if it is so far
My courage lets me down
 
With all the trimmings
I think just of myself
Just of myself

I had NO IDEA (KEINE IDEE) how to translate "mit allem Drum und Dran." So I had to use several translation websites. One translation wrote "with stock and barrel." The weird thing is, I KNOW I have heard that expression used before. And then I remembered "lock, stock, and barrel" is an American expression used for "the whole thing!" Like, "I cleaned up my house - lock, stock, and barrel!"

"Drum" and "Dran" mean "drums" and "whistles," I believe. Makes no sense in English, so I just used "with all the trimmings," which was unfortunately taken off of a translation website. >.<

Oh, and I could NOT figure out what "pinkel" means. I know "pinkeln," but...

German

Nur an mich

Wenn ich Morgens früh erwach
ist mein Spiegel den ich sag
Es ist schön
so schön
