Ich brauche Zeit, kein Heroin
Kein Alkohol, kein Nikotin
Brauch keine Hilfe, kein Koffein
Doch Dynamit und Terpentin
Ich brauche Цl fьr Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie Benzin

Brauch keinen Freund, kein Kokain
Brauch weder Arzt noch Medizin
Brauch keine Frau, nur Vaselin
Etwas Nitroglyzerin
Ich brauche Geld fьr Gasolin
Explosiv wie Kerosin
Mit viel Oktan und frei von Blei
Einen Kraftstoff wie Benzin

Gib mir Benzin

Es flieЯt durch meine Venen
Es schlдft in meinen Trдnen
Es lдuft mir aus den Ohren
Herz und Nieren sind Motoren

Benzin

Willst du dich von etwas trennen
Dann musst du es verbrennen
Willst du es nie wieder sehen
Lass es schwimmen in Benzin

Ich brauch Benzin

Gib mir Benzin Unofficial Translation ©2005 Jeremy Williams.



I need time, don't need heroin
Nor alcohol, nor nicotine
I don't need help nor caffeine
But I do need dynamite and turpentine
I need oil for gasoline [2]
Explosive like kerosene
With lots of octane and free of lead
A fuel like petrol

I don't need a friend, nor cocaine
I need neither a doctor nor medicine
I don't need a woman, just Vaseline
Some nitroglycerine
I need money for gasoline
Explosive like kerosene
With lots of octane and free of lead
A fuel like petrol

Give me petrol

It flows through my veins
It sleeps in my tears
It leaks from my ears
Heart and kidneys are motors

Petrol

If you want to part with something
Then you have to incinerate it
If you never want to see it again
Let it swim in petrol

I need petrol
Give me petrol

[1] Petrol is the British term for gasoline; gasoline is the American term for Petrol.

[2] "Gasolin" is not a German word, but simply the English word, made German. However, there was a German chain of gas stations called "Gasolin" that only existed for about 20 years.
