Well, It's German, Vaguely... [Dec. 1st, 2017|12:16 pm]
Tony Grist
I'm not someone who goes round the house singing all day- I'd be shouted at if I did- but the act of putting up the Christmas tree demands a vocal accompaniment- something sugary and Germanic. I only know the first line of the most obvious song- which goes "O tanennbaum, o tannenbaum" and the last line which goes "We'll keep the red flag flying here" so I opt for this instead:

Falling in love again,
What's a girl to do?
Never wanted to.
I can't help it.

I put on music that I can sing along to...easier that way. And oddly, I even remember a few lines of carols in Polish that my grandmother taught me as a child.

The songs and rhymes we learn in childhood tend to stick.

I like that one too- the only song (so far as I know) popular with both sides in WWII.

Ich bin von Kopf bis Fuß
Auf Liebe eingestellt,
Denn das ist meine Welt
Und sonst gar nichts...

(And I'm terribly young and in love these days, so I'll sing along to that. I can't help it...)
