bubamara (thema - vulkanausbruch): fly away fly away / ladybird ladybird / fly away from home // annie's farm is on fire / ararat's peak explodes / black clouds mounting higher / smoke around the globe // icicles keep raining / annie's sheep get drowned / mudslides flood the plain and / magma streams downtown // red hot stones from the sky / in ponds and lakes and seas / annie's mother is crying / ashes dry the tears // bursting thunders farther / ararat's slopes are dark / annie carries her mother / up to noah's ark

dacia (thema - nosferatu-film): horses at night clattering on cobblestone / carts with coffins and soil leaving transylvania / ho young girls beware the bloody teeth of bat-man / who foresees the voyage of the maniac // midnight sissy sleeps she didn't hear the beastly creature / who besieged the weeny village seeking victims for it's greed / sissy screams she feels the teeth the freezing lips the skinny fingers / she is squeezed her spirits leave the bleeding ceases rest in peace // who can stop the caravan of dracula // sissy is a teeny in a weeny village / in a windmill in a steep descending street / she enjoys to drink a tea - feel the sea-breeze on her skin / meet the fisherwomen near the village inn // sissy is religious with a deep belief in jesus / she did a pilgrimage to francis of assisi / she resists the silly city with its kinky dinky mistresses / seducing little pissers dealing kisses // who can stop the caravan of dracula

dunjezute (thema - immer nach der handynummer fragen): once upon a voyage I met her in that first class carriage / her speech so full of noblesse I missed to check her address / she got off in Lyon she blew a kiss and said I see you / so that - I must now write - was love at first sight // many years have passed by remembering jasmine and the black eyes / each time I take that railway I hope for a replay / I recall her radiance from just an atom of her fragrance / oh lord it's like a skydive our love must wait for next life // lazy I let you go you no name bird jasmine wondergirl / crazy I miss you so will never ever find my pearl
