GERMAN POP LYRICS: FROHE WEIHNACHTEN!

Trio were a bunch of jokers from Germany who scored a worldwide hit with “Da Da Da” in 1982 (it reached #2 in the UK). Though they are considered one hit wonders by most people, in Germany they had six big hits, the last of which was their Xmas single “Turaluraluralu” in December 1983. An appearance on “Thommys Pop Show” singing the English version (see below) features an all star cast of backing singers, including Chris de Burgh, Musical Youth, Shakin’ Stevens and Nena. The world of music was never the same again…

NB I think BuBu is just a made up nonsense word, in context it might mean nothing i.e. I do nothing.

TURALURALURALU

So weit weg und lange her
Ich erinner mich nicht mehr
Waren da Lichter an dem Baum
Oder war das nur ein Traum?
Oh, wir haben viel gelacht
So viel Sterne in der Nacht
Turaluraluralu
Ich mach BuBu
Was machst du?
 
Turaluraluralu
Turaluraluralu
Turaluraluralu
Ich mach BuBu
Was machst du?
 
So weit weg, vor langer Zeit
Gedanken wandern weit
Es lag schnee dort
Oder nicht?
Und da war auch dieses Licht
Schöne warme leichte Frau
Ich erinner mich genau
Turaluraluralu
Ich mach BuBu
Was machst du?
 
Turaluraluralu...
TURALURALURALU 

So far away and long ago
I can't remember anymore
Were there lights on the tree
Or was it just a dream?
Oh, we laughed a lot
So many stars in the night
Turaluraluralu
I’m doing BuBu
What are you doing?
 
Turaluraluralu
Turaluraluralu
Turaluraluralu
I’m doing BuBu
What are you doing?
 
So far away, a long time ago
Thoughts wander far
Was there snow there
Or not?
And there was this light
Beautiful, warm and gentle woman
I remember exactly
Turaluraluralu
I’m doing BuBu
What are you doing?
 
Turaluraluralu...
