Monarchy Now

Monarchy now, alive
 
I buried my tomcat yesterday,
A gift from my father
He says we are all equal before God,
Only our kaiser was more equal -
Even as a corpse
He says, no matter kaiser or führer -
All of them war losers
I silently inspect my medals,
Then many things become clearer to me
 
Kaisers, princes, kings -
All of them beloved monarchs
Pleased again about where
The train of time is taking them today
Give the country daring
Parades - patriarchs
Give the people the saints
That they wish for so bad
 
Monarchy now, alive
 
In a worse case scenario, if I had to choose
Between monstrous or decadent souls,
Between kingdom standards and
Schönbrunn lilacs1,
Then I'd still rather choose the Crown Prince
He may not have had his own kingdom,
But a multitude of mistresses to make up for it
It also stayed that way, in any case
In that point -
He'd be a liberal
 
Kaisers, princes, kings -
All of them beloved monarchs
Pleased again about where
The train of time is taking them today
Give the country daring
Parades - patriarchs
Give the people the saints
That they wish for so bad
 
Well, there goes our salvage guys
 
With flags, trumpets and shells
For the monarchs
Orient Express, Constantinople-Vienna
Give the country snazzy
Salon party plonarchs2,
Let the dissidents
Leave for America now
 
Kaisers, princes, kings -
All of them beloved monarchs
Pleased again about where
The train of time is taking them today
Give the country daring
Parades - patriarchs
Give the people the saints
That they wish for so bad

Could Plonarch be a typo for Pleonarch? I'm not sure either word exists, but Pleonarch , if it does exist, probably means someone who uses pleonasm to gain or retain control of conversation or debate; in other words, some-one who uses too many words deliberately in order to render communication ineffective (so it would be a synonym for "political leader"). But the word isn't in any German dictionary I've seen (or any other language, for that matter) but since pleo[n]- (from Greek) is a prefix used in several languages and -arch is common enough too it seems possible that someone coined it sometime and it got into these lyrics somehow.

Synonym for "political leader." You are one laff riot, Tom!

I did a Google search on "plonarch." I didn't look too too closely at the results but it seems that not just the word but the entire expression "Salon Party Plonarch" has something to do with some sort of multi-player game, possibly a video game, or maybe just something available over the Internet. Not being a "gamer" myself, I am totally ignorant -- ON PURPOSE -- of all such things. May this be the last time I ever encounter this subject.

The game references are there because someone who played various games supported by internet-based software called "steam" chose Slon-Party-Plonarch as his steam-name for some reason, just as we chose Grampa Wild Willy and MichealT as our lyricstranslate-names (for rather more intelligible reasons, of course). So the game connection is just that someone who was a multiplayer game addict (at least until feb 2012 - that's the last time GamesMods,org saw him) picked that name, and for all we know he picked it from the song (the song is old enough - first released in 1982 on the album Nachtflug) - he could be expected to listen to German stuff as he was based in Stans (chief town of Nidwald, Switzerland) which is a mainly German-speaking town. The song can't have taken the phrase/word from an internet-based multi-player game of the type on the web-pages found by google with that search, since it antedates such games unless one counts the earliest MUDs (MUD/MUD1 and itsvarious clones, MUD2, MIST, SHADES) as such games, but these were nothing likethe modern games.

I've seen the term "Plonarchen" used in some German history books so it's not a made up word. Might be a term used to refer to prince or royal court but that just a guess based on the books I saw it used in since I know of no translation for it.
