MUNICH, 200th OKTOBERFEST TRAVBUDDY MEETUP

 

Oktoberfest is something everyone should experience. I was fortunate to attend the 200th anniversary of the first Munich blowout with terrific TravBuddies. There's something wonderful about standing on benches - singing, swaying and chugging brew to drinking songs with thousands of your new best friends. Music is almost as important to Oktoberfest as its liquid gold.

Here are a few classic Oktoberfest tunes:

 

Hände Zum Himmer

German lyrics

Man muss die Feste feiern so wie sie fallen wo wir auch sind
Drum feiern wir bis morgen früh und alle machen mit.

Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände nach vorne, Hände zur Seite und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle
das machen wir bis morgen früh,
denn heute ist ein schöner Tag
wir feiern wie noch nie,
denn heute ist ein schöner Tag
wir feiern wie noch nie

Du schaust mich an und ich denke mir
mai Dirndl wie bist du schön
drum lad ich dich ein, denn so ein Tag
der sollte nie vergehn.

Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände nach vorne, Hände zur Seite und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle
das machen wir bis morgen früh,
denn heute ist ein schöner Tag
wir feiern wie noch nie.

den heute ist ein schöner Tag
wir feiern wie noch nie.

Wir gehen heut nicht nach hause und schon geht's wieder los.

Frani, me & Lisa think this should become the official photo of Oktoberfest's 200th anniversary :-) Caption: oans, zwoa, g'suffa (one, two, drink) :-D

Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände nach vorne, Hände zur Seite und wieder
hoch hoch hoch zum Himmel
Hände zum Himmel, Hände zur Hölle
das machen wir bis morgen früh,
denn heute ist ein schöner Tag

wir feiern wie noch nie,
ja heute ist ein schöner Tag.

wir feiern wie noch nie
wir feiern wie noch nie
wir feiern wie noch nie
wir feiern wie noch nie.

 

Hände Zum Himmel (Hands To Heaven)

English lyrics

You've got to celebrate the festivals as they come
So we're partying until the morning and everyone's taking part.

4 terrific TravBuddy recruits reporting for duty


Hands to heaven, hands to hell and again
high, high, high to heaven
hands to the front, hands to the side and again
high, high, high to heaven
Hands to heaven, hands to hell
we'll do it until the morning,
'cause today is such a beautiful day
we're partying like never before,
'cause today is such a beautiful day
we're partying like never before,

You look at me and I think
golly girl, you're beautiful
so I buy you a drink, coz such a day
it should never end.

Hands to heaven, hands to hell and again
high, high, high to heaven
hands to the front, hands to the side and again
high, high, high to heaven
Hands to heaven, hands to hell
we'll do it until the morning,
'cause today is such a beautiful day
we're partying like never before,
'cause today is such a beautiful day
we're partying like never before,

We're not going home tonight and
then it starts again.

Hands to heaven, hands to hell and again
high, high, high to heaven
hands to the front, hands to the side and again
high, high, high to heaven
Hands to heaven, hands to hell
we'll do it untill the morning,
'cause today is such a beautiful day
we're partying like never before,
'cause today is such a beautiful day.

we're partying like never before
we're partying like never before
we're partying like never before
we're partying like never before.

So Ein Schöner Tag (Fliegerlied)

German lyrics

www.youtube.com/watch?v=R-_xXfjB3AM

 

Ich lieg gern im Gras und schau zum Himmel rauf.
Schaun die ganzen die Wolken nicht lustig aus?

Und Fliegt ein Flieger vorbei,
dann wink ich zu ihm rauf.
(Hallo Flieger)

Und bist du auch noch dabei,
dann bin super drauf.

Und ich flieg, flieg, flieg, wie ein Flieger
bin so stark, stark, stark,
wie ein Tieger
und so groß, groß, groß, wie ne Giraffe
so hoch uoh-oh-oh.

Dalmia & Lev - Keep the goodies coming!

und ich spring, spring, spring immer wieder
und ich schwimm, schwimm, schwimm
zu dir rüber und ich nehm, nehm, nehm dich bei der Hand weil ich dich mag
und ich sag:
Heut ist so ein schöner Tag - La, la, la, la, la.

(Wiederholung)

So Ein Schöner Tag (Fliegerlied) Today Is Such A Beautiful Day (The Airplane Song)

English lyrics

I like to lay in the grass and look up at the sky.
Don't all the clouds look funny?

And a plane flies past
and I wave up at it.
(Hello plane)

And if you're there too,
then I feel fantastic.

Julia & I agree to meet at Oktoberfest every 200 years


And I fly, fly, fly, like a plane
am so strong, strong, strong
like a tiger
and so tall, tall, tall like a giraffe
and tall all-oh-oh
and I jump, jump, jump and keep on
jumping
and I swim, swim, swim
over to you and I take, take, take
you by the hand because I like you
and I say
Today is such a beautiful day - La. la. la. la. la.

(Repeat)

Skandal Im Sperrbezirk

German lyrics

www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNdWe8PLYfs

 

In München, steht ein Hofbräuhaus,
doch Freudenhäuser müssen
raus,
damit in dieser schönen Stadt
das Laster keine Chance hat.

To paraphrase an old Waylon Jennings song: Out in Munich, Germany - ain't nobody feelin' no pain


Doch jeder ist gut informiert,
weil Rosi täglich inseriert,
und wenn dich deine Frau nicht liebt,
wie gut, dass es die Rosi gibt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal... Skandal um Rosi!

Ja, Rosi hat ein Telefon,
auch ich hab' ihre Nummer schon,
unter zwo-und-dreißig-sechzehn-acht
herrscht Konjunktur die ganze Nacht!

Und draußen im Hotel L'Amour
langweilen sich die Damen nur,
weil jeder, den die Sehnsucht
quält,
ganz einfach Rosis Nummer wählt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal... Skandal um Rosi!

Ja, Rosi hat ein Telefon,
auch ich hab' ihre Nummer schon,
unter zwo-und-dreißig-sechzehn-acht
herrscht Konjunktur die ganze Nacht!

Und draußen im Hotel L'Amour
langweilen sich die Damen nur,
weil jeder, den die Sehnsucht
quält,
ganz einfach Rosis Nummer wählt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal, Skandal um Rosi!
Skandal, Skandal, Skandal, Skandal, Skandal.

Skandal Im Sperrbezirk (Scandal In The Shutdown)

English lyrics

In Munich, there's a Hofbrauhaus,
But brothels have to move to the suburbs,
so that in this beautiful city
The vice has no more chances.

It's unanimous: Greta, me & Marlene declare OKTOBERFEST HATS RULE


But everyone is well informed,
as Rosi inserts an advertisement daily,
and if your wife doesn't put,
it's so good that Rosi's there!

And outside of the big city
the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!

Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under thirty-two-sixteen-eight
there's a boom throughout the night!

And outside in the Hotel L'Amour
the ladies only feel bored,
because everybody who is tortured by his longings
simply dials Rosi's number!

And outside of the big city
the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!

Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under thirty-two-sixteen-eight
there's a boom throughout the night!

And outside in the Hotel L'Amour the ladies only feel bored,
because everybody who is tortured by his longings
simply dials Rosi's number!

And outside of the big city the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal in the shutdown zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!
Scandal, scandal, scandal, scandal, scandal.
