"Amerika (english)" as written by Oliver Riedel, Doktor Christian Lorenz, Christoph Doom Schneider, Richard Z. Kruspe, Paul Landers and Till Lindemann....
We're all living in America
America is wunderbar
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika

We're all living in America
America is wunderbar
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika

Wenn getanzt wird, will ich führen
Auch wenn ihr euch alleine dreht
Lässt euch ein wenig kontrollieren
Ich zeige euch wie´s richtig geht
Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen
Die Freiheit spielt auf allen Geigen,
Musik kommt aus dem Weißen Haus,
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Maus

We're all living in America
America is wunderbar
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika

Ich kenne Schritte, die sehr nützen,
Und werde euch vor Fehltritt schützen,
Und wer nicht tanzen will am Schluss,
Weiß noch nicht das er Tanzen muss!
Wir bilden einen lieben Reigen,
Ich werde Euch die Richtung zeigen,
Nach Afrika kommt Santa Claus,
Und vor Paris steht Mickey Maus

We're all living in America
America is wunderbar
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika
We're all living in America
Coca-Cola, Wonderbra
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika

This is not a love song
This is not a love song
I don´t sing my mother tongue
No, this is not a love song

We're all living in America
America is wunderbar
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika
We're all living in America
Coca-Cola, sometimes war
We're all living in America
Amerika, Amerika

    General CommentGod, I swear when most morons see the word "America" in a song they automatically think it's all anti-american well this is straight from "The Edge" magazine..

    "Basically, Rammstein has never been political before, or ever, but while recording this album, the Iraq war was going on and we were confronted by the flood of media images and coverage, and thought that we could make a statement that things are not black and white, like you're made to believe sometimes," says Reidel. "People should realize that things are not black and white, and people should look at their own country to see what they think, and look at how America has influenced their own country, how they've Americanized the world, and what about America is good and bad."

    General CommentI LOVE IT!!! this song is a perfect example of how stupid our country is and how stuck up we are. and the whole point of singing in english is to show that everyone speaks english. they're mocking us and our lifestyle and when you take a step back and look at us, they're right. all us americans care about are the simple, less important things in life that only affect us. we don't care about things we do that might affect other countries

    General CommentA lot of people would actually love to live in America. I seriously don't think people realize how lucky we (americans) are to live in America.
