Wolfgang--I think it would be great if you could post the German songs here, and maybe tell us something about them. I'm curious as to how the tune got over there! But it does go the other way as well--there's a great Scottish song called "The Crocodile", which translates a German student song you may know, "Ein lust'ger Musikanter". Not to mention borrowing Haydn's "Emperor's Hymn" (Deutschland ueber Alles) for an English hymn ("Glorious things of thee are spoken") as well as an obscene thing, "Life presents a dismal picture". Anyway--please post the German songs.
