        I don't need this
        don't care about it, I don't feel this
        Don't care about it, if I'm hungry
        then I am eating, if I'm lazy
        Then I am sleeping, I don't need this
        don't care about it, in two years
        I'll be retiring, don't feel good
        don't feel sad, don't get angry
        I don't get mad and I don't go up
        I don't go down, I don't need this
        Don't care about it

        Some like moonlights
        gay sonatas, I'd like to get out
        Persona non grata, move out
        with nothing with me, no hair upon my head
        If it is chilly, no clothing
        no extra money, no children
        No extra honey, no mistress
        no little chocolate, no chokes and sobs
        I want to get out, I want to get out
        I want to get out

        I don't need it



        [dialogue in German with "Spine Music" instrumental]



        I don't need this
        don't care about it, I don't feel this
        Don't care about it, if I'm hungry
        then I am eating, if I'm lazy
        Then I am sleeping, I don't need this
        don't care about it, in two years
        I'll be retiring, don't feel good
        don't feel sad, don't get angry
        I don't get mad and I don't go up
        I don't go down, I don't need this
        Don't care about it, don't care about it
