Du bist wirklich saudumm
Darum geht's dir gut
Hass ist deine Attitüde
Ständig kocht dein Blut
Alles muss man dir erklären
Weil du wirklich gar nichts weißt
Höchstwahrscheinlich nicht einmal 
Was Attitüde heißt

Deine Gewalt ist nur ein stummer Schrei nach Liebe
Deine Springerstiefel sehnen sich nach Zärtlichkeit
Du hast nie gelernt dich zu artikulieren
Und deine Eltern hatten niemals für dich Zeit

Oh oh oh, Arschloch

Warum hast du Angst vorm Streicheln
Was soll all der Terz
Unterm Lorbeerkranz mit Eicheln
Weiß ich schlägt dein Herz
Und Romantik ist für dich
Nicht bloß graue Theorie
Zwischen Störkraft und den Onkelz
Steht 'ne Kuschelrock LP

Deine Gewalt ist nur ein stummer Schrei nach Liebe
Deine Springerstiefel sehnen sich nach Zärtlichkeit
Du hast nie gelernt dich zu artikulieren
Und deine Eltern hatten niemals für dich Zeit

Oh oh oh, Arschloch

Weil du Probleme hast, die keinen interessieren
Weil du Schiss vorm Schmusen hast, bist du ein Faschist
Du musst deinen Selbsthass nicht auf andere projizieren
Damit keiner merkt was für ein lieber Kerl du bist

Oh oh oh

Deine Gewalt ist nur ein stummer Schrei nach Liebe
Deine Springerstiefel sehnen sich nach Zärtlichkeit
Du hast nie gelernt dich arti zu kulieren
Und deine Freundin die hat niemals für dich Zeit

Oh oh oh Arschloch! Arschloch! Arschloch
