Five by Five cover

June 2010
Free download of "Pissing in the Rhine" from the new Five by Five EP

To celebrate the band's long relationship with their many loyal fans in Germany, they introduced a new song with lyrics orignally written and sung in German — the whimsically profound Pissing In The Rhine. This song is the first track on the new Five by Five EP and was available as a free download prior to the release of the EP on 9 July 2010.

The new import EP is now available in our store and from amazon.de.

 

Pissing in the Rhine

Well it finally happened – and it was only a matter of time. We actually wrote a Hooters song in another language, the language in this case being German. The title is the only English lyric – nothing else sang as well or felt as good.

As for the lyric, “Pissing In The Rhine” is simply another in a long line of happy/sad drunken rock and roll rants, with our narrator trying to recover from a broken relationship, drowning his sorrows with various libations, hanging out down by the river…the river in this case being the Rhine.

No offense is meant (or hopefully taken) as our hapless hero relieves himself of his woes. Still, every dark cloud has a Silver Lining, but that’s another story…

To our German fans, we apologize for our German. To our other fans, we apologize for our German. Enjoy…and we hope to see you this summer on Tour 2010, as we celebrate 30 years together on stage. Cheers!!

Eine gute Flasche Wein
Du bist nicht bei mir
Aber ich bin nicht allein
Hier mit ’nem großen Bier
Pissing in the Rhine
Ich bin nicht allein

Ich war dein Mann
Du wolltest besser
Ich hoffe, dass du glücklich wirst
Ja, ich war dein Mann
Hast du vergessen
Die sieb’n Dutzend Rosen
Die Toten Hosen
War ich so ahnungslos?
Nein!

Eine gute Flasche Wein
Du bist nicht bei mir
Aber ich bin nicht allein
Hier mit ’nem großen Bier
Pissing in the Rhine
Ich bin nicht allein

Warst du meine Freundin?
War ich geblendet?
Und warum kann ich es nun sehen?
Du warst nicht meine Freundin
Es hat geendet
Das Schreien und die Küsse
Jedermann wisse
Hab‘ ich Gewissensbisse?
Nein!!!

Eine gute Flasche Wein
Du bist nicht bei mir
Aber ich bin nicht allein
Hier mit ’nem großen Bier
Pissing in the Rhine
Ich bin nicht allein
Du bist nicht allein
Wir sind nicht allein
