I did not even know this song existed until tonight, and I happened to like Falco when I was younger, so it's intriguing, but I can't read the lyrics because I don't speak the language! I tried some of the translation websites, but what comes out of them is a garbled nonsense. So if someone can give me a reasonably accurate translation of this song, I'd be eternally grateful.


Titanic
Lyrics: FALCO, Music: R. & F. Bolland; Published by Bolland & Bolland Songs/TBM International, Falkenhorst

The unsinkable Titanic - Hey, oh, allright, oh

Sieht man um sich, was passiert,
wohin es geht's oder auch nicht,
hilft nur eines
Schampus, Kaviar, Noblesse im Gesicht

Let's deca-dance in jedem Fall,
die Smokingträger überall -
denn Nobel geht die Welt zugrund'
ob dieser oder jener Stund
Morbidity for you and me ... say

Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ganz allanig - aber fesch
mit all den Millionen Cash und all der teuren Wäsch'
Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ganz allanig - aber gut,
denn wer sich retten tut, der hat zum Untergang kann Mut
Decadence for you and me, decadence

In jedem Fall entscheid' ich mich,
egal, ob nobel oder nicht,
besser neureich sein als nie reich sein
und in Gesellschaft nicht allein

Let's deca-dance at all events,
im Walzerschritt zum letzten Tritt,
denn wer den Walzer richtig tritt,
der ist auch für den Abgang fit
Morbidity for you and me ... say

Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ...

The unsinkable Titanic

Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ...
Die Titanic sinkt in Panik ganz allanig (rep till fade)

Titanic

The Unsinkable Titanic - Hey, oh, alright, oh

If you look around to what's happening
where to things lead or even not
only one thing helps:
champagne, caviar, noblesse in your face

Let's deca (allude to "decadence")-dance in every case
tuxedo-wearers everywhere
because nobly the world goes to pieces
weather in this or another hour.
morbidity for you and me... say

The Titanic sinks in panic all alone but smart
with all the millions cash and all the expensive clothes
the Titanic sinks in panic all alone but good
because those who can save themselves don't have the courage to drown
decadence for you and me, decadence

In every case I decide
- no matter if noble or not -
better to be new-rich than never rich at all
and never alone in society

Let's deca-dance at all events,
in waltz-step to the last step
because who dances the waltz right
is even fit for the departure/exit
morbidity for you and me... say

The Titanic sinks in panic

The unsinkable Titanic

The Titanic sinks in panic
The Titanic sinks in panic all alone ...
