Übersetzung von "Lied über die Unzulänglichkeit menschlichen Strebens"
Bertold Brecht

A man lives in his head
The head is not enough
The proof - even a lousy louse
Prefers the head of a giraffe
Cause for this life
And all it´s strife
Man never notes
He is not big enough

Why don´t you make a plan,
Try being a big shot!
And then you make another plan
Whichever - it works not!
Cause for this life
And all it´s strife
Man never notes
He is not smart enough

And when you run for luck
Run slow and watch your back
When all the others run and fall
The luck sits in your neck
Cause for this bloody life
And all it´s strife and stumble
Man never notes and doesn´t care
He isn´t enough humble

Man is not good at all
So give him a good beating
Since once you do he apprehends
That he was always cheating
Cause for this life
And all it´s strife
Man never notes
He just ain´t good enough
