Lyrics
Du passt so gut zu mir wie Zucker zum Kaffee
Du passt so gut zu mir so wie das A zum B
Der Gedanke, den du denkst
ja den selben denk ich längst
und ich weiß schon früh was Du mir abends schenkst ...
(You fit so perfectly to me, like sugar fits to coffee
You fit so perfectly to me, like the letter A to the letter B
The thought you think
I've thought before
and I know in the morning what you will endow me in the evening ...)

Du passt so gut zu mir wie Blumenduft zum Mai,
so wie die Sternennacht zur Liebesträumerei,
wir verstehn uns wunderbar
ja wir sind direkt ein Paar,
ohne dich bin ich die Hälfte, das ist wahr.
(You fit so perfectly to me, like the smell of flowers to the month of May,
like the night with its stars to the dreams of love,
we go very well together
I think we are a couple
without you I'm only one half, that's true.)

Stundenlang könnt ich dir sagen, wie du zu mir passt,
dass man uns nicht trennen kann.
Wen du es so gerne hörst und Zeit für mich noch hast,
dann fang ich noch einmal an ...
(Hours and hours I could tell you how well you fit to me,
that we can't be divided.
If you like to hear it and have some more time for me,
I'll start over once again ...)

Andreas, your harmonies are heavenly
and you make it all sound so easy. The background vocal additions are amazing. You are truly a one man vocal band!

You never cease to amaze me,
with your talent and range Andreas.

I've come to expect absolutely anything and everything from you and no matter what it is you do, it's always the same, stunningly well done.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful work my friend.

amazing
i am going to freak out if I can't download this song for my upcoming vacation. perfect flying music. this is really amazing. i never know what to say when I listen to these pieces, you got it all. perfect vocals, wildly imaginative harmonies, wit and humor. you should have hug out with van dyke parks and brian wilson; you would have been a lifelong influence to millions of hipsters.

very nice
This is a genre I have very little patience for, but I enjoyed this song all the way through. Both the vocals and the recording are top quality.

Wow,
this was really cool. Incredible singing skills and with humor too. I've never really been into barbershop, but that's one of the great things with MJ: You get to know and enjoy genres you've never really listened to before! So, thanks for sharing this here with us all!
