"Don't Make No Promises (your Body Can't Keep)" as written by Matthias Jabs and Hermann Erbel....
I saw this girl walking down the street
I thought, oh yeah, she looks rather neat
I grabbed my chance and played my usual game
I tell you man, it can be a strain

She didn't want to know what I'd got to say
Just shook her head and looked the other way
And then she said, I've met your type before
For me you're all the same, you're such a bore

[Chorus:]
Oh no, don't make no promises
Oh no, your body can't keep

Next day, can you believe, she was at the show
She said, hey man, you're great and she took me home
She started to undress, what a shock to see
Padded bra, blond wig, not much left for me

[Chorus x3]
Oh no, don't make no promises
Oh no, your body can't keep

    General CommentIrony; she wouldn't have anything to do with him, he was a "nothing," until she realized he was a star. She took him home and he found out she was, in fact, a "nothing."

    General CommentAbout two lines in you knew it was a Herman lyric and a trite re-working, on Rudolf's part, of the musical formula from the earlier 'Another Piece of Meat'. Dreadful stuff. And they used the word 'neat' too. Hilarious. Using this approach they went onto conquer the world.
