An der Nordseeküste am plattdeutschen Strand
sind die Fische im Wasser und selten an Land.
Die launische Forelle!!

Av den tysken jeg lærte på skolen er det lite jeg kan i dag Jeg bare husker at lærer'n ble or'ntlig gæærn når jeg ikke gjorde som han sa Lektor Gullfjell sa: "Du vet det kommer en dag da du får bruk for det du lærer nå så ta dere sammen, snart er det eksamen og da gjelder det å stå" Så vi våknet fra dvalen, jeg og linjalen, jeg tok fram en penn, så fikk jeg da bruk for den. Lærer'n sa: "Skriv nå av alt som står på tavla mi nååå!" Og der stod det Ref: "An, auf, hinter, in, neben, über, unter, vor und zwishen, an die Bank und auf die Tischen. Ich weiss, du weisst, wir wissen" Du veit det holdt til påske men ikke til St. Hans, Da strøyk jeg med glans, på "An, auf, hinter, in, neben, über, unter, vor und zwishen" Men alt går over for den som alltid sover, og slutten på skolen ble brå. Så jeg jobba no'n år med et magasår på kontor i et reklamebyrå. Men så en dag kom en mann i fra Vest-Tyskland "mit ein snell-samarbeitungs-plan". Og sjefen han sa: "Han der får du ta deg av, det er jo du som har no' skolegang." Så jeg tenkte: Her er sjansen til å klatre høyt i bransjen. Jeg tok sjefens bil, man må jo ha stil. Vi dro ivei, han og jeg, tysker'n sa: "Wunderbar!", og jeg svarte: Ref: "An, auf, hinter, in, neben, über, unter, vor und zwishen an die Bank und auf die Tischen. Kristian Radik müsen Sie sehe. Over der Monolitten!"

Very nice - but you stopped before the last verse where he ends up "An, auf, hinter, in, neben, über, unter, vor und zwishen" two young ladies from Bonn.

I have previously recommended Nena to a couple of students starting out with German as a source of very well enunciated vocals.

I stop each time with my bike when the traffic light is red. Stil I just don't know why there is a traffic light standing there as there is no crossroad!

Thank you.
Is that common in your area?
I don't remember I have ever seen this before.
BTW it seems so irrelevant in the actual context of this GVA street that I have to ask what it is for!

pedestrians push the button when they want to cross the road and the light (eventually) changes
not that exact design, but similar is common
