lyrics

"Je ne c'est pas" is French for "I don't know what"
"Jamba" is Swahili for the air in your gut
"Misdadig" is Dutch for one who's hung from a noose
And "grapefruit" is English for…

Une pamplemousse!
Deux pamplemousse!
Mon pamplemousse!
Votre pamplemousse!

Ya da da!

"Gott in Himmel" is German for of what I dream
"Cristiano" is Italiano for "Goyim"
"Forno" is Portuguese for where you cook a goose
And don't forget! "Grapefruit" is just English for…

Une pamplemousse!
Deux pamplemousse!
Mon pamplemousse!
Votre pamplemousse!

Lo siento, pero no recuerdo mucho Espanol
Porque I learned it all _____ anos ago
Pero hay una cosa que yo recuerdo muy bien
And that, of course, is how to say: "This is my pen."

Eso es me pluma!
Esto es tu pluma!
Alli esta muchas plumas,
Pero aquí esta mi pluma!

Ya da da!

Une pamplemousse!
Deux pamplemousse!
Mon pamplemousse!
Votre pamplemousse!
