Lyrics to Resi i hol di mit'n Traktor ab in English and German - an easy-going Oktoberfest tune

Resi i hol di mit'n Traktor ab (I’ll pick you up with my tractor) is an age-old tale: Boy has meets girl; boy falls in love with girl; boy and girl drive off together in a large piece of agricultural machinery.
Maybe it’s that sweet, simple quality that made this 1986 sing a hit for German singer Wolfgang Fierek (born 1950)?
What’s interesting is that while this hit is so countrified, its composer was anything but.
Fierek has been a fixture of German film and television since 1977 and has something of a Dirty Harry demeanor.
He looks just as comfortable in front of the cameras as he is straddled on one of his collection of Harley Davidsons.
resi-i-hol-dirFierek is married to Malerin Djamila Mendil, a Sioux, and he became an honorary member of the tribe after their traditional Native American wedding ceremony.
The melody of Resi i hol di mit'n Traktor ab is pretty straightforward - this is straightforward polka and musicians thinking of expanding their Oktoberfest-friendly repertoire will find this an easy song to master.

Resi, i hol' di mit mei'm Traktor ab
Resi, mit dem mach i niemals ned schlapp
Und dann spiel i Mundharmonika, denn romantisch bin i ja a

Du wohnst glei hinter Trudering, auf'm Bauernhof
Und weil i in der Stadt drin wohn
Findst mi vo haus aus doff
Doch bei mir ham glei bei dir alle glocken gleit
Hörst mi ned kommen, hörst mi ned kommen - madel hast für mi zeit?

Resi, i hol' di mit mei'm Traktor ab
Resi, mit dem mach i niemals ned schlapp
Und dann spiel i Mundharmonika, denn romantisch bin i ja a

I hock drom auf'm Schleudersitz, koana holt mi af
Lachend wirst vor der haustür stehn und i ziag di zu mir nauf
Du wirst sehn dass i so stark wie a traktor bin
Dann a für immer runter willst nimmer
Wir fahr'n irgendwohin

Resi, i hol' di mit mei'm Traktor ab
Resi, mit dem mach i niemals ned schlapp
Und dann spiel i Mundharmonika, denn romantisch bin i ja a

Resi, i hol' di mit mei'm Traktor ab
Resi, mit dem mach i niemals ned schlapp
Und dann spiel i Mundharmonika, denn romantisch bin i ja


English Resi i hol di mit'n Traktor ab lyrics (translation)

'Resi, I’ll pick you up with my tractor'

Resi, I’ll pick you up with my tractor
Resi, with you I’ve never had enough
And then I’ll play the harmonica, because I’m romantic

You live just behind Trudering, on a farm
And because I live in the town
You think I’m actually pretty daft
But at the same time for me as for you
All the bells ring out.

Don’t you hear me coming
Don’t you hear me humming
Girl, have you got time for me?

Resi, I’ll pick you up with my tractor
Resi, with you I’ve never had enough
And then I’ll play the harmonica, because I’m romantic

I sit up on the big seat
And no-one stops me
You greet me at your front door laughing  
And I pull you up to me
You’ll see that I’m as strong as a tractor
Then you’ll stay forever, you won’t remember otherwise
And we’ll drive somewhere together

Resi, I’ll pick you up with my tractor
Resi, with you I’ve never had enough
And then I’ll play the harmonica, because I’m romantic

Resi, I’ll pick you up with my tractor
Resi, with you I’ve never had enough
And then I’ll play the harmonica, because I’m romantic
