Overall Meaning

The song Muamen by Attwenger seems to be a playful commentary on the abundance of information and stimuli in modern society. The repeated chorus "muamen wia die mauna" can be interpreted as a comparison between the constant buzzing and activity of human life and the frantic movements of ants.


The lyrics go on to describe various scenes of chaos and confusion, such as "die schaud aus wia die attrappm von da aundan kaulquappm", which paints a picture of frogs with fake-looking puppets in their environment. The line "mid der kau sie si wos schnappm und des kau si überlappm" suggests that everyone is constantly grabbing and overlapping with each other in their pursuit of something.


The repetition of "haum die leis die meis" and "haum die mauna die muamen" could be interpreted as a commentary on the monotony and lack of variety in modern life.


Overall, the song seems to be a humorous critique of the overwhelming nature of modern society and the constant pursuit of something, whether that be knowledge, entertainment, or material goods.
