Well Cynkool, what do you think? Do you understand the song now?
Though I do speak german quite well, I am not sure I do. But that in itself doesn't surprise me, a lot of songs Grace wrote are, how to say this, impressionist writing. "Hey Frederick" for instance, I am not sure what it is about, but somehow the images that are invoked by the lyrics go well with the melody.
But your question made me wonder: Are all english speakers among us so good in german that they understood the song right away, did they never wonder what the song was about, or do they just don't care (I understand that, Americans are very myopic).
Well dummies, now that you know what the song is about, give me your opinion.
Before all of you get mad, I use "dummies" in the sense of "silent ones".
But you knew that, didn't you?
