Schtiwwel muss schtarrewe,
Iss noch so yung!
Un wan des der Absatz wisst,
Ass der Schtiwwel schtar r’we misst;
Schtiwwel muss schtarrewe,
Iss noch so yung!
Schtiwwel muss schtarrewe,
Iss noch so yung!
Leebt noch ken zwanzich Yaahr;
Iss an seim Todesdaar.
Schtiwwel muss schtarrewe,
Iss noch so yung!

Boot has to die,
While still so young!
What if the heel would know,
That the boot soon must go?
Boot has to die,
While still so young!
Boot has to die,
While still so young!
Will soon be here no more,
For he’s at death’s door!
Boot has to die,
While still so young!
