I sing a Liad für di lyrics

Lyrics to I sing a Liad für di, a breakthrough hit which is still popular at the Munich Oktoberfest


This popular Oktoberfest tune (whose title means ‘I sing a song for you’ dialect) was a breakthrough hit for Austrian folk singer Andreas Gabalier.
Born November 21, 1984, Gabalier started to get famous in his home country in 2009, and I sing a Liad für di become his first big hit in Germany two years later.  
The song stayed in the Austrian charts for a record-breaking 132 weeks and helped him to win the prestigious Amadeus Austrian Music Award in 2012 and again in 2013.

i sing ein liad fur dichIt’s a typically light and poppy song which can easily get stuck in your head if you’re not careful. You've also got to love the music video (below) where Gabalier strides around in those half-socks that keep the calves warm.
The translation into English lyrics below might not be perfect, but it’s difficult trying to work out what some of the Austrian words mean! They’re rather different from standard German.
Let’s hope Gabalier still has more where this hit came from.

German I sing a Liad für di Lyrics
I sing a Liad für di, und dann fragst du mi
Mogst mit mir tanzn gehn, I glab I steh auf di
I sing a Liad für di und kann die Sterndal sehn
I hab mi verknollt in di

I hob a Engerl g'sehn über die Stroßn gehn
Es hot so liab g'locht in ana Samstagnocht
Hot jo zu mir g'sogt und I hob mi g'frogt
Wos so a Engerle wul mog

In die leuchtenten Aug'n muß ma eini schaun
Nu Weil a Engerl in da Nocht so vül liaba locht
Bei da Hand hot's mi g'schnappt und I hob's ertappt
Weil's ka Flügerl hot des klappt

I sing a Liad für di, und dann fragst du mi
Mogst mit mir tanzn gehn, I glab I steh auf di
I sing a Liad für di und kann die Sterndal sehn
I hab mi verknollt in di

Noch dem ersten Hallo hast mi g'hobt sowieso
A Engerl und a Teuferl des is amol a so
Host mi a Busserl gebn I hob mi nimmer länger g'frogt
Wos so a Engerle wul mog

Hand in hand zagt sie mir dann die Himmelstür
Jetzt war mir klar das des ka Engerl war
Hätt I g'wußt wos passiert wär I net so verwirrt
Wenn so a Engerl ohne Flügerl fliagt

I sing a Liad für di, und dann fragst du mi
Mogst mit mir tanzn gehn, I glab I steh auf di
I sing a Liad für di und kann die Sterndal sehn
I hab mi verknollt in di

Au la la la so a schöner Tag
Uh la la la wo I a Engerl hob
Au la la la so a schöne Nocht
Da Himmel hot mi a Engerl brocht

I sing a Liad für di, und dann fragst du mi
Mogst mit mir tanzn gehn, I glab I steh auf di
I sing a Liad für di und kann die Sterndal sehn
I hab mi verknollt in di

I sing a Liad für di und kann die Sterndal sehn
I hab mi verknollt in di

English I sing a Liad für di Lyrics (Translation)
"I sing a song for you"

I sing a song for you, and then you ask me
Do you want to dance with me? I think I like you
I sing a song for you and I can see little stars
I’ve become stuck on you I saw an angel walk across the road

She looked so sweet on a Saturday night
Said yes to me and I asked myself
What such an angel would like
You just have to look into those shining eyes
Because an angel looks so lovely in the night
Hit me with her hand and I was caught out
Because no wings did that

I sing a song for you, and then you ask me
Do you want to dance with me? I think I like you
I sing a song for you and I can see little stars
I’ve become stuck on you

After the first hello, you had me anyway
An angel and a devil, that’s sometimes how it goes
You gave me a kiss and didn’t need to ask myself anymore
What such an angel would like

Hand in hand, she took me to the gates of heaven
Now it was clear to me this was no angel
If I had known what would have happened I wouldn’t have been so confused When such an angel flew without wings

I sing a song for you, and then you ask me
Do you want to dance with me?
I think I like you I sing a song for you and I can see little stars
I’ve become stuck on you

Au la la la such a beautiful day
Uh la la la when I had an angel
Au la la la such a beautiful night
When heaven brought me an angel

I sing a song for you, and then you ask me
Do you want to dance with me? I think I like you
I sing a song for you and I can see little stars
I’ve become stuck on you

I sing a song for you and I can see little stars
I’ve become stuck on you
