I. Preliminaries

A. INTRO by Klaus "Major" Heuser(BAP)

VIRTOUSI: It's really most pretentious and worth playing even if you don't
know the song and are not into krautrock... (The corresponding chords are my
own interpretation which is a kind of hobby of mine  - RG)

II. The original song

After the INTRO the song starts like this (lyrics are Cologne German,
an English translation is provided at the bottom! - RG):

  1.                                                        * Hochdeutsch:

  met singe paar Klamotte steiht: Eduscho


     F
      jo, d Jupp trick jraad sing Sejel huh(*)            * zieht gerade  \
                                                            \sein Segel hoch\
            Bb                           bb
      un h nemp(*) dich met, jedenfalls meint er et       * und er nimmt...

                F               C
      un h verzhllt sich fruh(*),                        * erzhlt sich froh


2.
  Om Projamm(*) steiht Weltreis.                           * auf dem Programm
  Wie jeden Daach verzllte(*), wat ihm wo passiert ess    * Tag erzhlt er
  Kokosnss un Packeis...
  und wie h vver(*) den quator balanciert ess           * er ber
      un vverhaup, die dausend Fraue, die h kannt
      un die Messerstecherei, sick(*) der d Duhme fhlt,  * seit

3.

      un dann die Wahnsinnszick(*) als Robinson            * -zeit
      en singer eijene(*) Welt, janz op sich self jestellt * seiner eigenen
      oh Mann, wer kann dat schon?

4.
  Jupp verzllt vom Joldrausch
  un, wie h Twist jedanz htt met 'ner Cobra
  Vun 'nem karrierten Zebra,
  d blonde Fee aus Peking, namens Lola.
      Nur vun Stalingraad verzllte nie
      "Wo litt(*) denn Stalingraad? En welchem Land ess dat?"      * liegt
      Stalingraad pack h nie, irgendwie.

(followed by electric guitar solo)


III. Now the English interpretation, quite crude, I must admit. As for its
     contents: it's not meant to be politically, but just a plain story about
     an old tramp from Cologne creating his own, probably past in order to
     dispace bad remembrances (check it out):

 1.
D                                                           # ANNOTATIONS
  Ahn der Vringspooz(*) triffsten                           * Am Severinstor
> You meet him at Severin's Gate(#)                         # Sight in Cologne

d7/5+                        C7              d
  met singe(*) Kumpels un d Mammutflsch Lambrusco         * seinen
> with his fellows and a giant bottle of Lambrusco(#)       # cheap red wine

D
  Op d Plastiktt
> The plastic bag

d7/5+                C7             d
  met singe paar Klamotte steiht: Eduscho
> containing his few stuff reads: Edusho (#)                # Coffee Corp.(tm)

     F                             C
      jo, d Jupp trick jraad sing Sejel huh(*)            * zieht gerade  \
>     yeah, ole Yupp's about to set his sail                \sein Segel hoch\

            Bb                           bb
      un h nemp(*) dich met, jedenfalls meint er et       * und er nimmt...
>     and you're taken along - so he thinks, anyway

                F               C
      un h verzllt sich fruh(*).                         * erzhlt sich froh
>     and tells glad himself(#)                            # makes himself happy
                                                             by telling stories

2.
  Om Projamm(*) steiht Weltreis.                           * auf dem Programm
> The programme reads "globe trip"

  Wie jeden Daach verzllte(*), wat ihm wo passiert ess    * Tag erzhlt er
> As all days he's recalling what he's seen everywhere

  Kokosnss un Packeis...
> coconuts and pack-ice...

  und wie h vver(*) den quator balanciert ess           * er ber
> And like he balanced accros the equator

      un vverhaup, die dausend Fraue, die h kannt
>     and, by the way, thousand girls were his

      un die Messerstecherei, sick(*) der d Duhme fhlt,  * seit
>     and then the knifling which made him loose

      ahn singer rchte Hand.
>     his right hand's thumb.

3.
  Un eez en(*) Katmandu,                                   * Und erst in
> And then in Katmandu where

  wo h met zwei Yetis Skat jekloppt(*) htt               * gespielt
> he was playing cards with two yetis

  do woot(*) manche Nejer blass                            * wurde
> Some 'negro' grew pale coz of

  vun dmm, wat unsre Jupp -och jeistisch- alles drophtt  * drauf hat
> how well our Yupp - mentally too - was equipped

      un dann die Wahnsinnszick(*) als Robinson            * -zeit
>     and then the mad times as Robinson

      en singer eijene(*) Welt, janz op sich self jestellt * seiner eigenen
>     in his own world set, totally alone

      oh Mann, wer kann dat schon?
>     oh man, who would be able to?


4.
  Jupp verzllt vom Joldrausch
> Yupp tells about the gold rush

  un, wie h Twist jedanz htt met 'ner Cobra
> and him dancing twist with a cobra

  Vun 'nem karrierten Zebra,
> About a checked zebra, and

  d blonde Fee aus Peking, namens Lola.
> the blond fairy from Peking, named Lola

      Nur vun Stalingraad verzllte nie
>     About Stalingrad(#) he doesn't tell                  # Russia, site of a
                                                         major defeat of German

>     "where's Stalingrad? What country's that?"

      Stalingraad pack h nie, irgendwie.
>     Stalingrad he'll never cope, somehow...


(followed by Electric Guitar Solo.)

I hope there is some positive resonance for this song. If you have ideas of
how to create a more apt English translation (I'm not a native Engish speaker)
you are welcome.
