"St. Pauli" as written by and Friederike Siepe Ian Stuart Wilson....
Friends, near complete family
At times, they don't understand me
Birthday, Christmas they send all love
We both know, it's just not enough

I'd feel alive as part of a team
St. Pauli, hear me scream

Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!

She, can't say she loves me
Even though it's plain to see
I'm saying it to her
So she can say it back to me

Sometimes our phone isn't quite what it seems
I'd have companionship as part of a team

Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!

We are Hamburg school

Sorry if my accent's flawed
I learnt my German from a 7 inch record

Sorry if my accent's flawed
I learnt my German from a 7 inch record

Sorry if my accent's flawed
I learnt my German from a 7 inch record

Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!
Punk rock ist nicht tot!

The kids don't like it,
The kids don't like it
What else can we do when the kids don't like it

The kids don't like it,
The kids don't like it
What else can we do when the kids don't like it

yeah!

    General Comment"What else can we do when the kids don't like it"
    Got to be a reference to the Undertones song "Girls don't like it", right? There's so many classic punk references in Art Brut songs, it's fun to spot them all.

    General CommentI love the line "We are Hamburg school"! For those of you not familiar with the German music scene (I don't blame you), it refers to the "Hamburger Schule", a music movement. The joke is that the bands usually said to belong to the Hamburger Schule (Blumfeld, Tocotronic, Die Sterne...) hate that lable and would never say "We are Hamburg school".

    St. Pauli obviously refers to the district in Hamburg, as well as the football (soccer) club. But you probably already knew that... ;)

    General CommentOh wow, I totally misinterpreted this song! I heard it as 'Punk rock is nicht toll' meaning punk rock is not cool haha. I guess it's the opposite meaning :P

    Song MeaningIt's about wanting to belong. Apparently, Eddie felt a bit alone in Germany and stumbled upon a large crowd of St.Pauli fans (probably on their way to a game?) and envied their comradeship. Introducing himself using the only German he knows (which he learnt from a 7" punk rock record) he attempts to ingratiate himself with them.
