Skandal im Sperrbezirk lyrics

SKANDAL IM SPERRBEZIRK LYRICS: If you only learn one song for the Munich Oktoberfest, do yourself a favor and make it this one.

Munich rockers the Spider Murphy Gang had an early eighties chart-topper with Skandal im Sperrbizirk and it’s still the most popular rock anthem on the Wiesn.

Directly translated, the title means “Scandal in the prostitution-free area”but I think you’ll agree it sounds a tad catchier in German.I’ve called it the “Shut-down zone”below for want of something else.
Said scandal concerns Rosi, a Munich gal who’s in the service sector, that is to say, phone sex.
She skirts around the city’s anti-prostitution laws and keeps her customer base smiling by dutifully advertising in the local newspaper.

Some radio stations initially boycotted the song because of the use of the word “Nutten”, which translates to “bitches”, sluts”or “whores”. The first line is a reference to an early Munich classic, see here for more on the tune “In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus”

Here's the Spider Murphy Gang with a high-energy rendition from 1989 –turn this one waaaaay up!


Lyrics to Skandal im Sperrbezirk


German Lyricsto Skandal im Sperrbezirk
"Skandal im Sperrbezirk"

In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus,
doch Freudenhäuser müssen
raus,
damit in dieser schönen Stadt
das Laster keine Chance hat.

Doch jeder ist gut informiert,
weil Rosi täglich inseriert,
und wenn dich deine Frau nicht liebt,
wie gut, dass es die Rosi gibt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal... Skandal um Rosi!

Ja, Rosi hat ein Telefon,
auch ich hab' ihre Nummer schon,
unter zwo-und-dreißig-sechzehn-acht
herrscht Konjunktur die ganze Nacht!

Und draußen im Hotel L'Amour
langweilen sich die Damen nur,
weil jeder, den die Sehnsucht
quält,
ganz einfach Rosis Nummer wählt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal... Skandal um Rosi!

Ja, Rosi hat ein Telefon,
auch ich hab' ihre Nummer schon,
unter zwo-und-dreißig-sechzehn-acht
herrscht Konjunktur die ganze Nacht!

Und draußen im Hotel L'Amour
langweilen sich die Damen nur,
weil jeder, den die Sehnsucht
quält,
ganz einfach Rosis Nummer wählt!

Und draußen vor der großen Stadt
steh'n die Nutten sich die Füße platt,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal im Sperrbezirk,
Skandal... Skandal um Rosi!
Skandal Skandal Skandal Skandal Skandal...


English Lyrics to Skandal im Sperrbezirk
"Scandal in the shut-down zone"

In Munich there's a Hofbrauhaus,
But brothels have to move to the suburbs,
so that in this beautiful city
The vice has no more chances.

But everyone is well informed,
as Rosi inserts an advertisement daily,
and if your wife doesn't put,
it's so good that Rosi's there!

And outside of the big city
the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!


Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under thirty-two-sixteen-eight
there's a boom throughout the night!


And outside in the Hotel L'Amour
the ladies only feel bored,
because everybody who is tortured by his longings
simply dials Rosi's number!

And outside of the big city
the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!


Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under thirty-two-sixteen-eight

And outside in the Hotel L'Amour the ladies only feel bored,
because everybody who is tortured by his longings
simply dials Rosi's number !

And outside of the big city the bitches get flat feet,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal in the shut-down zone,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!
Scandal scandal scandal scandal
scandal...
