Women give birth to new life!!!
They don't reflect. They are glorious beings,
that carry our childs within their body!

I think you misintepreted the English context of reflect there. Besides literal reflection, it means to ponder; think philosophically.

Ohhh! That's the same in German, too. "reflektieren" - but you just explained the word ponder to me.
I thought you meant reflect, like the moon does, lol


edit: and NOW I got the word "pun", lol. It's a word game That's why it's good to be in this forum. I learn new words..

That's the great thing about English; because it's derived from so many diferent languages, there are always new words to learn. I sometimes open a dictionary at random and look for words I haven't heard.

sometimes you have 7 words for the same ****ing thing.
And then you don't have a word for "Schadenfreude", and just call it Schadenfreude, lol
You don't make a difference between "Torte" and "Kuchen" and call it BOTH cake. I mean - what the ****?!
You have no word for Kummerspeck(eating when sad), no word for fremdschämen(feeling ashamed for another person's behaviour),
no word for a Rabenmutter (a bad mother), and you don't even have a word for very lucky or very unlucky people: "Glückspilz"(luckmushroom) and "Pechvogel"(misfortunebird)
also you don't know what "verschlimmbessern" is, which is the act to try to make something better, but making it worse instead.
O M G! Right?

Well a Speisekarte is what you call a menu,

and a Menü is arranged food..
sadly my only example is mcdonalds:
if you order sth, like a burger, and get french fries and a coke with that,
than all of that is a Menü.
Why is my only example mcdonalds?! I haven't been there in about 7 years, lol

Thank you very much man. I'll get the files to you asap. I'm intrigued I have to be honest. The music is just beautiful and I'd like to know what, if anything, the spoken parts have to do with the songs.

Yes. Yes we do. And we all sing this song, every day at sunrise. It's actually a criminal offence not to.

Also do you know the song "Du hast"? I have the english version and it says "you hate me" but hast is really have, right? And I thought hate was hassen.

No Problem. Just send it to me, and I'll translate it.


Hmm..Now I got an "Ohrwurm" (and again sth you don't have a word for..)
It's a song that gets stuck in your head and won't leave...
google says i should say "catchy tune", but that's not the same..
it's not just a catchy tune, it's something that'll stay in my brain and it out from the inside..
