Und da hab I gsehn, dass

[someone says that this is not the 'un man..']

Ich versteh kein wort
(I don't understand a word)
Ich bin do in dem klavier

Drinne und's klingt so komisch
(it sounds so strange)

[someone says 'this ain't cnn'...]

Do kommt ma scho rum in dem klavier
(you sure get around in this piano)

[someone says 'my fist speaks english...']

I net, I net, wenn I red no red I
(not me, not me, when I speak I do)
Scho bayrisch

[a different voice in german:]

Bevor ich hier reingekommen

Bin, da hab ich ein patrami

[then it goes on until 'rap .. hip hop ...']

Des moecht I fei nimmer hoeren
