Der Erlkönig!

7 Dec

Yes. Don’t ask. Just watch it now. It’s clean, so show it to your mom and friends and little siblings.

This is a young German group called Jungen Dichter und Denker, or JDD, which means Young Poets and Thinkers (Philosophers).  This song has been put into the Pop machine. It as a poem (Folklore) about a little boy who is riding through the forest on horseback with his father. He sees Der Erlkönig (The Elven King), who’s this fictional figure who kills children. He tries to tell her father, but his dad doesn’t see the creepy elf king, just saying how is the “Vines so green” and stuff to that extent. As it nears the end, Der Erlkönig yells out, “Ich lieb dich, mich reizt deine schöne Gestalt, Und bist du nicht willig, so brauch ich Gewalt!” which is, “I love you for your beauty of course,
If free you’ll not come, I will use force.” He touches the kid and he dies. The end. Very happy story. NOT. But, an AWESOME poem/song. Aren’t you glad you watched it? JA!

I was learning Duestch (German) at one point a summer or two ago, but I forgot about it and school isn’t helping. I hope I could take a German course later on. Its a really cool language, in my opinion. Ich sprecken sie winzig Duestch, nicht kennen Sie Grammatik. Ach ja. :\

Umm…nothing new today. It was rainy. I’ll upload a thing later.

If you want to see the whole shbang, check out this link. Its the poem/lyrics with translation. 😀
