Description
First of all, my apologies to anyone who has had enough of "I Love My Mac" because you are about to get more! A woman in Switzerland contacted me saying that she did a version in German because she is such a fan of the song (as well as of Macs and GB of course.) In her translation, she tried to maintain my message as well as still having it rhyme, so that's why it isn't a literal translation, and she is new to pop recording as she comes from the classical world, so please keep that in mind as you listen : )
Many thanks to Antonia Lutz in Switzerland for your incredible enthusiasm and passion for this song!

Lyrics
Whenever I want to connect a device
it gets recognized at once
I don't have to hope and to pray to Holy Bill [Gates]
I just connect it
and get ahead much faster
and am as happy as possible

I love my Mac
because he's so reliable, so practical and so super lovely
oh he's just wonderful

[in German we say "he" not "it" when we speak of a computer!]

I don't have to worry about security
Viruses and Trojans
don't have a chance and are such a rarity
in perfect peace of mind
I can watch the evil things going on
and do (the same) as I've always done:

I love my Mac...

My software doesn't mess me around
but in case I need help
I look around in newsgroups, messageboards and forums
so many mac fans are ready
to help me at any time
in family-like solidarity

I love my Mac...

iPods ... [etc.] ... and iDVD
but the best thing there is
a dream that has come true
the best program in the land
best known as the coolest software:
of course, GarageBand

spoken parts in the last refrains:

reliable [repeated "zuverlässig"]
oh yeah [not translated]
superstar

so much
as a rock
so sexy [not translated]
PC, oh no

big love [not translated]
just cool ["lässig" rhymes with "zuverlässig"]
is everything clear?

Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac
just ingenious
a thousand thanks, Jobs and Woz!

That is, what a fun tune.
I wonder if one of your trekky fans might become inspired
and attempt it in clingon. :)
Congratulations on all your success here Daphna.

alte Deutsche Welle
das ist der erste deutsche song den ich hier gehoert habe.
Erinnert mich total an Markus "Ich will Spass".
Echt laessiger und geiler song. Werde ich sofort auf
meinen ipod laden.
Macs sind einfach die besten Komputer die es gibt.
