Tool – Die Eier Von Satan

This song has been around for years now, but only today did I go searching for an English translation of the lyrics. This amuses me to no end. Just adds to why I love Maynard, in all his musical/artistic incarnations so very much.

If you don’t know this song, let me just tell you that it’s very heavy and dark, and the vocals are some guy shouting at you in German. Sounds like some sort of Nazi rant. That’s why these lyrics make me giggle.

(Die Eier Von Satan) “The Eggs of Satan”

Half a cup of powdered sugar
One quarter teaspoon salt
One knifetip turkish hash
Half a pound butter
One teaspoon vanilla-sugar
Half a pound flour
150 g ground nuts
A little extra powdered sugar
… and no eggs

Place in a bowl
Add butter
Add the ground nuts and
Knead the dough

Form eyeball-size pieces from the dough
Roll in the powdered sugar
And say the magic words:
sim sala bim bamba sala do saladim

Place on a greased baking pan and
Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
…and no eggs

Bake at 200 degrees for 15 minutes
…and no eggs.
