Question

I do not speak nor do I understand Russian, so could you please tell me if this video is an interpretation of the lyrics or does it have some other profound meaning to it?

Thanks,
PHIL

Still great

Still a great video.

So the debate continues ... or just began again ...

As a Hessian, I can say emphatically that this is not German. The lyrics are Russian, with a handful of English and French tossed in for good measure. Russians would be MORE insulted (if that is possible) to have their laguage compared to german than Dutch. Tag teamed from Russian, through German, to English, as best we can make out:

Fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck.
Fuck. fuck. fuck. fuck.

We have too many kings and too many fools
Everyone yells %uFFFDnot dead%uFFFD, I say %uFFFDfuck off%uFFFD
Mumij can%uFFFDt be understood %uFFFD is he a fool, is he a king?
No easy role that Mumij's got!
%uFFFDBi%uFFFD isn%uFFFDt two, %uFFFDbi%uFFFD is zero.
%uFFFDChaif%uFFFD is no fun, it is "oh-so-painful"
A strange city is Leningrad
It was the cultural capital, and now it's nothing but profanity.

Chorus:
They call me shnur, they call me shnur.
I will come to you in your dreams, mon ami.
With cripples, and uglies,
With junkies, mon amour.

%uFFFDDDT%uFFFD %uFFFD that used to be pesticide.
It's been stinking for so long that my nose hurts.
%uFFFDAquarium%uFFFD is the place with snakes and reptiles,
Everyone is afraid to watch and these are only too happy.
Oh! someone%uFFFDs heart has stopped again...
New people? Don't they have enough old ones?
It%uFFFDs really hard to be a small horse,
I didn%uFFFDt try it, but they say it%uFFFDs possible.

Chorus:
They call me shnur, they call me shnur.
I will come to you in your dreams, mon ami.
With cripples, and uglies,
With junkies, mon amour.

The %uFFFDtime machine%uFFFD is stuck in its time,
And they can%uFFFDt rid of that burden.
%uFFFDDances minus%uFFFD or %uFFFDdances plus%uFFFD
I like neither whiners nor blues.
Rap used to be total shit,
But now i start the job here.
The song is over, soon is the finish,
When I shove it up %uFFFD no fucking way you%uFFFDll get it out!

Chorus:
They call me shnur, they call me shnur.
I will come to you in your dreams, mon ami.
With cripples, and uglies,
With junkies, mon amour.
