Once upon a long, long time ago, on a distant planet in a great nation called A.S.U. There lived many different animals together, and every four years they were allowed to elect their president. To make the country even bigger, it was decided that, at the end of the presidential election, a Lamb College were the only one to elect the new president. And so came the day when the lambs had to end up voting on whether a great black wolf should command them and over all the other animals in the country. What should the lambs do? „Hurz!“, and the lamb screamed Hurz. Sometimes, the truth is too hard for reality.

Es war einmal vor langer, langer Zeit auf einem weit entfernten Planeten. In einer großen Nation genannt A.S.U. lebten viele verschiedene Tiere miteinander und alle 4 Jahre durften sie ihren Präsidenten wählen. Um das Land noch größer zu machen wurde beschlossen, dass jedoch am Ende der Präsidentenwahl als einzige die Lämmer darüber bestimmen dürfen wer Präsident wird. Und so kam der Tag, an dem die Lämmer am Ende darüber abstimmen mussten ob ein großer schwarzer Wolf über sie und alle Tiere des Landes befehlen sollte. Was taten die Lämmer? Hurz! und das Lamm schrie Hurz.

Die Wahrheit ist manchmal zu hart für die Realität.

Lyrics (english)

H U R Z
The wolf,
The lamb,
On the green meadow.
HURZ!
And the lamb cried HURZ!
The wolf,
The lamb,
A lurch protrudes.
„The whole thing reminds me a bit of Peter and the wolf“
„And are there more animals besides wolf and lamb?“
„Maybe we could repeat it from the first sentence“
HURZ!
And the lamb cried HURZ!
The hawk sees the present
FIGHT!
„Yes, uh, pfff, I say quite honestly, to me it seems rather funny“
„As I assume, uh, that there is no intellectual access …“
„That can be good.“ „That can good be.“ „Ums, pfff, sure,
I can not do anything, but that does not mean, uh, pfff,
That I would be less intellectual than other people “
„Maybe we could repeat it from the first sentence“
HURZ!
And the lamb cried HURZ!
The wolf,
The lamb,
On the green meadow.
„Wolf and lamb … um, is not it, eh? … part of a certain reconciliation?“
The original feeling we carry within us is the FIGHT
„Maybe we could repeat it from the first sentence“
HURZ!
And the lamb cried HURZ!
„Uh, I should think you wanted to test the audience“
Well, I think the whole life is a test of the audience and the people.
The wolf (the wolf)
The lurch (the Lurch),
The hawk
And the lamb (and the lamb)
The wolf (the wolf)
The lurch (the lurch),
The hawk
And the lamb (and the lamb cried)
HURZ!
And the lamb cried HURZ!
And the wolf, and the hawk, and the lurch, and the lamb …
HURZ!

Next song tomorrow – stay tuned.
