and now, in stereo!..er,German!


Ich bin ein Holzfäller und fühl mich stark,
Ich schlaf des Nachts und hack am Tag.

When you translate that entire song very literally, it is hilarious. It says stuff about "chewing cookies to the coffee" instead of having "buttered scones for tea"

Hey, does anyone know the exact date on that sketch? (When it was broadcast.)

I suppose I could go look it up...December 14th, 1969.

But I was thinking...Ray Davies of the Kinks constantly boasts that he was the first one to use the word "lavatory" in a song (Shangri-La: "Gone are the lavatories in the backyard"). That was released on the album Arthur in 1969. About the same time this sketch might've been broadcast.

A ha! Arthur was released in October of that year. So Ray is still right so far - but he only beat Michael by a couple months!

Try harder, Michael! LOL!

He's probably a nasty so-in-so at home. :-)

I didn't write that! I didn't!!!

Hmmm, might be a good idea if I use another name next time I write something like that, then I won't have to pretend I didn't write it.

I just downloaded the song off of www.humorlinks.com/python/songs.html. It took a while to download, but its totally worth it, of course!
