Großvater Lyrics Übersetzung

At every quarrel with my mother
my first instinct was to get from home to yours
And you said "she is alone, understand,
Everything will pass, come drink a beer"

Then you said that life
consists of taking and a lot more giving
at which I've stolen those few thousand schillings
from your cupboard at night

to waste at the night club
a few days later you asked me about it
I denied it, cried hysterically
your eyes looked said, and then I cried
You just said: "Hey, let´s leave it at that
Money cannot even be that important

When you told stories of the war
how you´ve stood eye to eye to a Russian
and you both offered each other a cigarette
the hand shaking on the trigger out of fear


Or your wife who has annoyed
you all day long
you only said: "I love her,
I don´t always have to hear everything she says"

Grandfather, can´t you come down
for a quick coffee
Grandfather, I wanna tell you so many things
that I only understand now
Grandfather, you were my first friend
and that I won´t ever forget, grandfather

You were no superman, never acted like one
and because of that there´s somehow been a strength
and due to the way you´ve lived your life
I´ve got a clue how one might actually make it through

Your philosophy was: think first,
have an opinion and stand by it
never use violence, talk everything through
but don´t fear anyone


grandfather, can´t you come down
for a quick coffee
grandfather, I wanna tell you so many things
that I only understand now
grandfather, you were my first friend
and that I won´t ever forget, grandfather

grandfather, can´t you don´t down
for a quick coffee
grandfather, I wanna tell you so many things
that I only understand now
grandfather, you were my first friend
and that I won´t ever forget, grandfather
