Hello! I can't recognize all the languages from this song. Could someone help me?
I know there is English and Danish - or Norwegian - (I think, since "øl" = "beer"). And probably German, but I don't know.

Fra abend zu morning, fra morning to the night
Ich will trinken, etwas sterkere enn mann
Fra abend zu morning, fra morning to the night
Ich will trinken, das is was ich bin!

Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich need øl, Så mye at jeg spyr

For mein øl vil jeg jobbe, for mein øl vil jeg slåss
For mein øl I wanna do, whatever I have to
I fylla kan I sprechen, I fylla kan I kødde
I fylla kan I være, akkurat den I will være

Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich need øl, Så mye at jeg spyr
Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich need øl, Så mye at jeg spyr

Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich need øl, Så mye at jeg spyr
Øl øl Ich will øl, Øl det gjør meg drunk
Øl øl Ich need øl, Så mye at jeg spyr

Ich will trinken, das is was ich bin!, sprechen ... is German.

The only problem is that the Ø is a vowel and a letter used in the Danish, Norwegian, Faroese, and Southern Sami languages.
But I guess that someone will specify which language those lines are in.

Fra is Danish and Norwegian
sterkere is Dutch and Norwegian
enn is Faroese and Norwegian
det is Danish, Norwegian and Swedish, (German dialect)
gjør is Faroese and Norwegian
øl is Faroese, Norwegian and Danish

I think the language is Norwegian, not Danish.

Strangely enough, Google thinks that "jeg spyr" means "je demande" (ich frage) in French and German (= I ask), while in English she proposes "I puke" (vomit), which seems right. "To ask" should be "å spørre"...

Well, my bad!! I forgot to mention that the song is featuring the band "Trollfest" and they are Norwegian. So, i guess the lyrics are, a combination of English, Norwegian and German?
