I
I will be king
And you
You will be queen
Though nothing
Will drive them away
We can beat them
Just for one day
We can be heroes
Just for one day

And you
You can be mean
And I
I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're lovers
And that is a fact
Yes, we're lovers
And that is that

Though nothing
Will keep us together
We could steal time
Just for one day
We can be heroes
For ever and ever
What d'you say?

Du
Könntest du schwimmen
Wie Delphine
Delphine es tun
Niemand gibt uns eine Chance
Doch können wir siegen
Für immer und immer
Und wir sind dann Helden
Für einen Tag

Ich
Ich bin dann König
Und du
Du Königin
Obwohl sie
Unschlagbar scheinen
Werden wir Helden
Für einen Tag
Wir sind dann wir
An diesem Tag

Ich
Ich glaub' das zu träumen
(Zu träumen)
Die Mauer
Im Rücken war kalt
(So kalt)
Schüsse reißen die Luft
(Reißen die Luft)
Doch wir küssen
Als ob nicht geschieht
(Nichts geschieht)
Und die Scham fiel auf ihre Seite
Oh, wir können sie schlagen
Für alle Zeiten
Dann sind wir Helden
Nur diesen Tag

Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Nur diesen Tag
Dann sind wir Helden

We're nothing
And nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying
Then you better not stay
But we could be safer
Just for one day

    Song Factthis funny german version was a single he felt needed releasing for his fur(t)her ;ate 70s phase. it's concerned with nothing much at all really other than where he was at the time. many people feel a deep need to over-interpret whatever Jonesy did for whatever reasons they have.
    a silly song in English and more so in german.

    General Commentenglish version moment

    I, I wish you could swim
    Like the dolphins
    Like dolphins can swim

    Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
    We can beat them, forever and ever
    Oh, we can be heroes just for one day

    I, I will be King
    And you, you will be Queen
    Though nothing will drive them away
    We can be heroes just for one day
    We can be us just for one day

    I, I can remember
    (I remember)
    Standing by the wall
    (By the wall)
    And the guns, shot above our heads
    (Over our heads)
    And we kissed, as though nothing could fall
    (Nothing could fall)

    And the shame, was on the other side
    Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
    Then we could be heroes just for one day

    We can be heroes
    We can be heroes
    We can be heroes just for one day
    We can be heroes
