Am I pretty
Then cut me in the face
Am I stronger
Break my neck in disgrace
Am I smarter
Kill me and eat my brain
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up

Am I honest
Then bite my tongue right off
Am I richer
Then take it all
Am I braver
Kill me and eat my heart
I take your wife
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean

We're cooking jealousy

Have I such tender skin
Tear it out in stripes
Have i the clearest eyes
Steal all the light
Have I the purest soul
Burn it in the flames
I take your wife then
Kill me and eat me all up
Just eat me all up
And lick the table clean

We're cooking jealousy

    General CommentI'm German, and until coming across SongMeanings.net I didn't even know that Rammstein changed some of their songs into English versions. I found some of these new versions to be lyrically poorer than the original; it might have to do with them not being quite so fluent in English, but also with the fact that several songs rely on word-play, most of which will inevitably get lost in any translation. Having said that, THIS version is one of the best translations I have come across here. In the original, the line "Es kocht die Eifersucht" means "jealousy is cooking" or "boiling", as a metaphor for "jealousy is raging". "WE're cooking jealousy" fits the mood much better, I think. Good one!
