Hey Du- translation

  • Hey!
    Every English forum needs translations of German songs! I thought I would start with "Hey Du!" because it's one of my favourite songs. If you have suggestions about how to improve my translation please feel free to voice them. :)


    Hey you


    Hey, hey you, hey you,
    Just listen to me, listen to me
    I?d like to tell you something about me
    I have never done that before, except with you
    Perhabs it will do some good
    I don?t know you
    But I can see how sad you are


    But your sadness will pass
    That I know, That I can tell
    Soon you will be proud and happy again
    Because you are beautiful, even beautiful when you cry


    I have always been such a warthog
    Full of spots, sweaty, too fat and too small
    A clumsy person, half blind
    Unpleasant and amazed (verbiestert und baff?)
    And I didn?t? even finish 9th grade
    My mother is an alcoholic, her biggest misfortune was me
    I hate her just as much as she hates me


    But your sadness will pass
    That I know, That I can tell
    Soon you will be proud and happy again
    Because you are beautiful, even beautiful when you cry
    I have no gran who looks out for me (not quite exact but makes sense)
    No Rat, no dog, no friend
    My future is a disgusting endless tunnel
    Full of slime and decay, black like the night
    How good that sometimes an angel like you appears for me

  • "Baff" is an other word for "verblüfft"(amazed).
    I think "verbiestert" means "verärgert" or "unfreundlich"(displeased??).
    I'm not 100% sure maybe there is an other meaning for it in Berliner dialect.


    I hope I could help you :)
