Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Hamburger Show

We ate our chips with mustard sauce
Made poems for the pyramids on Venus, because
We wanted to catch the fancy
Of one-eyed Tsjechoslowakian girls
Baked potatoes were the ones who could get them
And we were laughing with dents as tears
The secret of it all just kept a secret
Until we finally understood:

That we are living
Living in the time we live in
Living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in

And our mama became a blues mama
Have another little piece of my heart baby
And we did it all over
No longer in our past
Our piano’s began to drink whisky
Fiddling throats instead of slimy voices
And the elephants disgusted our peanuts
They kicked our ass!

And now we are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in

We ate our chips with mustard sauce
How could we know it had nothing to do with appetite?
Ninety-three Tsjechian and Slowakian girls
They just rang the bell
Now it’s almost impossible
To choose one
They are strangling eachother with shoestrings
To make love with the one who know:

That we are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in
We are living
Living in the time we live in

We eat our chips with mustard girls
Cigarettes grow on our backs
Icecreams on our heads
Riding on our elephants
We’re everybody from now on
These are the secrets of our success, because
There’s one thing you gotta know
This is the Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Hamburger Show!
