The radio-operators-song

by Bernd Wübbecke

Everybody. Attention!
Everybody. Fall in!
We are marching in rank and row.
Everybody. Attention!
Everybody. Fall in!
Do you know the radio-operators-song?
It´s about the radio messaging,
and about love as well.
Everybody cheerfully join in the singing!
Sing along comrades!

In the small town,
lives a girl,
and we all love her so much,
because she has two blue eyes.
Blonde hair, seventeen years,
say what more do we want?
We radio-operators?

As we are from the radio-operators company,
and we always send out: I love - I love you.
And all the girls are listening to it:
Dee dah dee dit, dee dah dee dit ("L"ove)

Although the service is tough,
and the carbine hurts,
we do never despair.
Whether the hand is aching,
or the sand is crunching,
the sweat is running down the face.

Then a song strucks up,
through the rank and through the row,
Everybody cheerfully join in the singing!
Sing along comrades!

In the small town,
lives a girl,
and we all love her so much,
because she has two blue eyes.
blonde hair, seventeen years,
say what more do we want?
We radio-operators?

As we are from the radio-operators company,
and we always send out: I love - I love you.
And all the girls are listening to it:
Dee dah dee dit, dee dah dee dit ("L"ove)

When the sunday has arrived,
we are going with hooray,
into the small town.
Everybody wants to show then,
that he can dance,
with the beautiful girl.

When the violin is singing,
and a Waltz-song is sounding,
Everybody cheerfully join in the singing!
Sing along comrades!


In the small town,
lives a girl,
and we all love her so much,
because she has two blue eyes.
blonde hair, seventeen years,
say what more do we want?

and we always send out: I love - I love you.
And all the girls are listening to it:

1. Alle aufgepaßt!
Alle Tritt gefaßt!
Wir marschieren in Reih und Glied.
Alle aufgepaßt!
Alle Tritt gefaßt!
Kennt ihr das Funkerlied?
Von der Funkerei
Und der Liebe nebenbei
Singt alle fröhlich mit,
Singt, Kameraden, mit:

In dem Städtchen
Wohnt ein Mädchen
Und das lieben wir so sehr,
Denn es hat zwei blaue Augen,
Blonde Haare,
Siebzehn Jahre,
Sag', was wollen wir noch mehr,
Wir Funkersoldaten?
|: Denn wir sind ja von der L.N. Kompanie,
Und wir geben stets: "Ich liebe, liebe Sie",
Und alle Mädel hören mit.
Di da di dit, di da di dit! :|
2. Ist der Dienst auch schwer,
Drückt das Schießgewehr,
Wir verzagen alle nicht;
Ob auch schmerzt die Hand,
Ob auch knirscht der Sand,
Der Schweiß strömt vom Gesicht.
Dann ertönt ein Lied
Wie von selbst durch Reih und Glied,
Singt alle fröhlich mit,
Singt Kameraden, mit:
In dem Städtchen wohnt . . . .

3. Ist der Sonntag da,
Geht es mit Hurra
In das Städtelein hinein.
Jeder zeiget dann,
Daß er tanzen kann
Mit den schönen Mägdelein.
Wenn die Geige singt
Und ein Walzerlied erklingt,
Dann singen alle mit,
Dann singen alle mit:
In dem Städtchen wohnt . . . .

I never knew war songs would be this happy.

Well war-songs are usually all happy, because they must motivate you,
so most of the german songs sing about the beautiful girl, flowers, the homeland,
proud marching and so on :)

There is usually no "evil" sounding march XD

Yeah, like Kalinka from the Red Army Choir. It's about some country girls, strawberries and raspberries.

It's Korobeiniki.

Jesus, why does everyone no longer know the real name of that song?

I enjoy any kind of music, except those that are overly Christian or made by Justin Bieber.

hhah I've noticed a lot of the German marches that are condemned as Nazi propaganda are simply songs about their girls back home or flowers.

That´s so true...even the song for the SS "Erika" is about girls and flowers lol XD But in the 3. Reich were also made some songs about honour and to fight for the fatherland, for example Die braune Kompanie or Flieg deutsche Fahne flieg (fly german flag fly!).
But there was no song that had an evil text.

I also like die braune Kompanie, it sounds so proud and epic XD What I don´t like too much, are bavarian beer-tent songs, tho I´m a Bavarian XD I think prussian marches are the best, maybe the best of the world.

There's no doubt that Prussian marches are the best in the world

Unfortunately, our commander and many of us prefer that events remain 100% accurate at all times meaning that we only have photos taken by photographers that show up at our events and take photos and send them to us, or we have our re-skinned camera for private events. We've yet to re-skin a good quality video camera for footage that we can black and white over later....

Indeed, that would be cool, let me know if you ever make such movies...but don´t forget, colour-films did even exist in that times!

I even saw a colour-film from 1913, about the german Kaiser! I couldn´t believe that there existed such an invention already before the 1. ww, but all the years after they still used black-white-films...maybe because of the price?

Hey thanks, no sorry I just took a random soldier-pic, I wanted to search for a radio-operator, but I couldn´t find one oO

And I wanted to show with the song, about what the Germans mainly sang: Girls, homeland and dancing/singing XD

Thanks so much, indeed I liked the song, because it shows once more, the german soldiers were normal men, loving girls, the homeland and nearly all songs were happy and not evil, as some think.
