Posted:Yeah, I heard that song once...

...It could have been worse, I suppose.

It could have had the brown note, or been of specific frequencies that cause a standing wave in the ear canal or interference in the brain leading to an epileptic seizure.

Surely it can't be as bad as the crazy frog releasing a danced up techno remix single.

Posted:The only time I had heard it was when my bf sang it whilst we were on the phone, but the other morning I saw it on Video Hits, or Rage, or So Fresh, or something like that... it's cute... but not the best.

Cant believe it is the works of a 5 year old kid though

Posted:That's the first I've heard of it. Not sure if I wanna hear it, either, hehe. But the translation should be interesting to read.

Posted:1. Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil.
Komm aus gypten, das liegt direkt am Nil.
Zuerst lag ich in einem Ei,
dann schni-,schna-,schnappte ich mich frei


I am Schnappi (= Snappy), the small crocodile
I come from Egypt, that's at the Nile.
First I lay in an egg
Then I snee-sna-snapped myself free

Refrain
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp


Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap
Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap


For some strange reason THIS is the point where I'm starting to feel weird about translating a song that mostly consists of Schni Schna Schnappi, but nevermind, this website is for insane people anyways

2. Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
hab scharfe Zhne, und davon ganz schn viel.
Ich schnapp mir was ich schnappen kann,
ja ich schnapp zu, weil ich das so gut kann.


I am Snappy, the small crocodile,
I have sharp teeth, and lots of them
I snap what I can snap
Yes I snap because I'm so good at it.



Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap
Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap

3. Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
ich schnappe gern, das ist mein Lieblingsspiel.
Ich schleich mich an die Mama ran,
und zeig ihr wie ich schnappen kann


I am Snappy the small crocodile,
I like snapping, it's my favourite game
I sneak up to my mum
and show her how I can snap.



Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap
Snee-Sna-Snappy
Snappy Snappy Snap

4. Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil,
und vom Schnappen, da krieg ich nicht zu viel.
Ich bei dem Papi kurz ins Bein,
und dann, dann schlaf ich einfach ein.


I am Snappy the small crocodile
And I can't get enough of snapping
I bite into daddy's leg for a bit
and then, then I simply fall asleep



Snee-Sna-Snappy etc...

Yeah that does seem annoying, thank god I can't hear it. The lyrics are weird tho.
Japanese songs always translate funny into english. Crazy stuff.
