Eppu Normaali - Puhtoinen lähiöni (English translation)

English translation

This clean suburb of mine

Versions: #1#2
I bathe in joy, I live in Butterkilo
In a small box, in an apartment where
You can sleep and bathe, I'm very proud of it
Both (of the two) square meters are clean
No parasites like it here
The parquet is shining, plenty of food in the supermarket
 
You criticize the suburbs
You say "You don't know your ne-ne-ne-neighbors"
Although I hear their troubles
Through the wall day and night
There are the daft handymen
And the brave wives washing their husband's underwear
 
You look out of the window
I suppose this place is cool?
I don't know of anything better
At least according to the mayor,
This is close to heaven
 
You say: it's a long way to the city
Not even br-br-br-brats like it here
You have a deep concern for us
But the suburbs have one good side
 
Here you start to learn
To love the box that's waiting for all of us
 
Earthly possessions aren't weighting on our mind
If there's no shortage of it
If you have the cash for it
But a house with state-subsidized loan
Isn't always that spacious
 
Earthly possessions aren't weighting on our mind
If there's no shortage of it
If you have the cash for it
But a house with state-subsidized loan
Isn't always that spacious
