"Rock Me Amadeus" as written by Ferdinand D. Bolland, Robert J. Bolland and . Falco....
Rock me all the time to the top

Er war ein Punker
Und er lebte in der großen Stadt
Es war in Wien, war Vienna
Wo er alles tat

Er hatte Schulden denn er trank
Doch ihn liebten alle Frauen
Und jede rief
Come and rock me Amadeus

Er war Superstar
Er war populär
Er war so exaltiert
Because er hatte Flair
Er war ein Virtuose
Er war ein Rockidol
Und alles rief
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus

Ey
Es war um siebzehn hundert achtzig
Und es war in Wien
No plastic money anymore
Die Banken gegen ihn
Woher die Schulden kamen

War wohl jedermann bekannt
Er war ein Mann der Frauen
Frauen liebten seinen Punk

Er war Superstar
Er war populär
Er war so exaltiert
Genau das war sein Flair
Er war ein Virtuose
War ein Rockidol
Und alles ruft
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus
Come and rock me Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus, oh, oh, oh Amadeus

Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus, Amadeus
Amadeus

    General CommentI don't think anyone can argue that this the greatest English/German hybrid rock/rap song about an Austrian composer ever written in the '80s.

    General CommentBrilliant song. Made me look at Mozart in a completely different light, I used to think of him as a young chap who could play the piano well and wrote some of the worlds best music.

    The lyrics (when translated into English) are perceiving him as a Radical reformer of music at that time, and was extreemly popular, in the same way that many Punk rockers are nowadays.

    Btw, I had the problem with 'Skirt me Amadeus' as well lol

    Great song, biiiig thumbs up!

    General Commentthis song fucking rules...Falco may hav tempted fate by singing the line "because he lived so fast he had to die so young" b/c he died at only 40...

    General CommentGreat song. Falco has only one better song: Der Kommissar. Perhaps I'll post the lyrics soon. Austrian rap. Really cool.

    Obviously it's about Mozart and the fact that his own fame killed him (and the alcohol, of course).

    General CommentROCK = SKIRT in german!

    well thats true but in that case ROCK comes from ROCK-Music and therefore if he writes Rock me Amadeus.. he means, as i guess someting like push me,give it too me, s.th like that.

    bytheway Falco is s.th like a "hero" in vienna( i am born there)
