Description
I've tried to improve my track "Men" which I published last year on icomps
http://www.icompositions.com/music/song.php?sid=75288
I corrected some mistakes and remastered it completely.

Hope you like this new production of my a-cappella-cover of German songwriter Herbert Groenemeyer.

Lyrics
Männer nehmen den Arm (Men hold your arm)
Männer geben Geborgenheit (Men give security)
Männer weinen heimlich (Men cry auricularly)
Männer brauchen viel Zärtlichkeit (Men need a lot of tenderness)
Männer sind so verletzlich (Men are so vulnerable)
Männer sind auf dieser Welt einfach unersetzlich. (Men are inreplaceable in this world)

Männer kaufen Fraun (Men buy women)
Männer stehen ständig unter Strom (Men always run on adrenaline)
Männer baggern wie blöde (Men work hard)
Männer lügen am Telefon (Men tell lies on the phone)
Männer sind allzeit bereit (Men are always ready to start)
Männer bestechen durch ihr Geld und ihre Lässigkeit (Men buy someone with money and nonchalance)

Männer habens schwer nehmens leicht (It's hard for men, they take it easy)
außen hart und innen ganz weich (outside hard, inside totally week)
Werdn als Kind schon auf Mann geeicht (As a child already made a man)
Wann ist ein Mann ein Mann? (When is a man a man?)

Männer haben Muskeln (Men have muscles)
Männer sind furchtbar stark. (Men are terribly strong)
Männer können alles (Men can do everything)
Männer kriegen nen Herzinfarkt (Men get a heart-attack)
Männer sind einsame Streiter (Men are lonely soldiers)
Müssen durch durch jede Wand müssen immer weiter. (have to go through every wall, have to go on)

Männer habens schwer nehmens leicht (It's hard for men, they take it easy)
außen hart und innen ganz weich (outside hard, inside totally week)
Werdn als Kind schon auf Mann geeicht (As a child already made a man)
Wann ist ein Mann ein Mann? (When is a man a man?)

Männer führen Kriege (Men wage wars)
Männer sind schon als Baby blau (Men are already boozy when they are babies)
Männer rauchen Pfeife (Men smoke pipe)
Männer sind furchtbar schlau (Men are terrificly brilliant)
Männer bau'n Raketen (Men build rockets)
Männer machen alles ganz genau. (Men do everything extremely properly)

Männer kriegn keine Kinder (Men are not going to have babies)
Männer kriegen dünnes Haar (Men loose their hair)
Männer sind auch Menschen (Men are human beings, too)
Männer sind sonderbar. (Men are strange)

Männer sind so verletzlich (Men are so vulnerable)
Männer sind auf dieser Welt einfach unersetzlich. (Men are inreplaceable in this world)
Männer habens schwer nehmens leicht (It's hard for men, they take it easy)
außen hart und innen ganz weich (outside hard, inside totally week)
Werdn als Kind schon auf Mann geeicht (As a child already made a man)
Wann ist ein Mann ein Mann? (When is a man a man?)

your songs really are a work of art, for the simple reason that, it's hard enough to keep perfect time with someone when your looking into their face. How you do it so perfectly on your own I don't know. What a great song too; so witty..... and the harmonies are wonderful. Any more songs like this with the translation included and we'll all be speaking fluent German LOL, Excellent, regards M

Wow!! this one also truly blew me away as usual. I think this is my most favorite one of yours now. It cannot be said often enough.
I think you are very 'Extraordinary Talented'

Andreas ! Your great personality also shines through in your music.
Like Moviz comments we all get a lesson in how to speak in German.
as well. To all us mothers you will always be small boys:)
The line Men Buy Women ! Mmmm Lots of interesting food for thought there Andreas I would also be very interested to to hear a Woman's version of (Wimmin) (Woman) too :)

Peace Dee.

Love it!
I enjoyed the Brian Wilson moments in the chorus and the amazing control you have of your voice. The lyrics were very interesting in an almost Brechtian mode. In the verse starting "Mnner fhren Kriege" the main vocal drowned a little in the backing vocals - not a big problem for me, but I just thought I'd mention it.

German works so well in this form - I am always amazed at your posts here.

Herzliche Gruesse aus Australien!
