Skandal im Sperrbezirk lyrics

Lyrics to Skandal im Sperrbezirk, a pumping Oktoberfest rock hit

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.
Said scandal concerns Rosi, a Munich gal who's in the service sector, that is to say, prostitution.
She dutifully advertises in the local newspaper so clients can call her and she takes her business to her them, thus getting around the city's 'Sperrbizirk' - or no-go area for prostitutes.
skandal-im-sperrbizirk-lyricsSome radio stations initially boycotted the song because of the use of the word 'Nutten' (literally: Nuts), which is a not-so-nice way of saying 'hookers' in German.
The first line: 'In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus' is a reference to a classic song, the Hofbräuhaus-Lied, which celebrates Munich's most famous boozer.

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

Lyrics to Skandal im Sperrbezirk

German Skandal im Sperrbezirk Lyrics

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 Skandal im Sperrbezirk Lyrics (Translation)

'Scandal in the prostitution-free area'

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 give you sweet lovin',
it's so good that Rosi's there!

And outside of the big city
the hookers get flat feet,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!

Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under 32168,
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 hookers get flat feet,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!

Yes, Rosi has a telephone,
I've got her number too,
under 32168,
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 hookers get flat feet,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal in the prostitution-free area,
Scandal, scandal over Rosi!
Scandal scandal scandal scandal
scandal...
