Adam Angst - Was Der Teufel Sagt (English translation)

English translation

What The Devil Says

I had forgotten that we were invited
I should have stayed in the office
Now I'm spending my after-work hours at Tanja's and Steven's
Where we're talking bullshit, remembering pointless things
Mostly to avoid the embarrassment of silence
But we had taken a raincheck three times before already
 
The first course is a fresh field-salad on a elderberry-vinegret
"Dear you are spoiling us, I really need the recipe for this later on"
That's what I hear my girlfriend saying and not our host asking about
"I even have finger-food
And dips, help yourselves, why don't you try it, what would you like?"
 
I would really like to step on top of the table
And smear your stupid mush into your face
But the spirit is willing, only the meat is weak
Just listen for once
To what the devil says
 
How often do I imagine
How easy it would be
But I remain an idiot
And only say "Oh, really cool"
 
9 o'clock in the morning I'm sitting in a status meeting
And as one can imagine I now have to offer a status
"What's the story with the concept, did you manage to finish it last night?"
"Nope, I had finished off a bottle of red wine with Katja and Steven"
Did I really just say this or did I only think it?
 
And the colleagues are throwing a PowerPoint at the wall via the projector
My thoughts are somewhere else, certainly not in this country
How funny would it be
If a big elephant came
In here, threw all the furniture around
Smashes everything to bits
And as a coup de grace it sits on my boss
 
I wake up
"Mr Schönfuss, would you like to add anything?"
 
I would really like to step on top of the table
Drop down my pants and show my ass
But the spirit is willing, only the meat is weak
Just listen for once
To what the devil says
 
I have infinite ideas
And a blooming phantasy
But in real life
I never do it, never, never!
 
'cause I never listen to what the devil says
I never listen to what the devils says
I never listen to what the devils says
If I would only ever listen to
What the devil says
