Schnappi Support Group
« on: February 03, 2007, 12:09:24 AM »
Well curiosity finally got the better of me and I decided to find out what a Schnappi was and whether or not I could claim to support it. After searching the webternets, I found THIS:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Oe3FG4EOgyU" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/Oe3FG4EOgyU</a>

A couple questions:
1) What was that?
2) When does it leave my brain?

A couple questions:
1) What was that?

It was Schnappi, Das Kleine Krokodil.  He's a character from a cartoon on German TV.  When his theme song was released on CD, it reached number one on the German pop charts.  Between that and Hasselhoff, can there be any doubt that Germany must be stopped at all costs?

2) When does it leave my brain?

Only the sweet release of death can free you from Schnappi now.  Sorry 'bout that.  They really should think about putting a warning at the beginning of the video or something.

It's less painful if you don't try to fight it.  Instead, submit to Schnappi's love by immersing yourself in the metal version.

Schnee, Schnah, Schnappi!  Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp!

I made the mistake of playing this at work, now EVERYONE plays it all the time and I hear folks humming it.   This is how we Germans plan on taking over the world.......

One of the mods (Conner?) posted that months ago when people first started asking who Schnappi was.

After months and months of searching for more Schnappi, anything Schnappi, a new video turns up out of the blue.  It's pretty awesome:

Huh. So THAT'S what a Llama looks like. I feel so informed. Now the unending tune in my head can alternate between "Schnee, Schna, Schnappi" and "Das Lama Das Llama." Finally something to break up the monotony!

schnee, schna, schnappi, das llama das llama...


Edit: I suck at spelling and it bugs me.

For those of you who, like me, have a burning desire to know just what makes Schnappi tick, I present... the lyrics!  And my half-assed attempt at an English translation!  Now you can irritate friends and coworkers for days on end without causing any nearby Germans to fly into an inexplicable rage.

(Note: Apparently, the proper German translation of "schnappte" -- from which I believe "Schnappi" is derived -- is "snatch."  I've gone with "snap" instead, seeing as this is a kid's song and all.  Then again, these are Eastern Europeans.  You never know.

Kinda makes you wonder exactly what you're consuming when you drink schnapps, don't it?)

Schnappi, Das Kleine Krokodil

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil.
Komm aus Ägypten, das liegt direkt am Nil.
Zuerst lag ich in einem ei,
Dann schnee, schna, schnappte, ich mich frei

Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil
Hab scharfe zähne, und davon ganz schön viel  
Ich schnapp mir was ich schnappen kann
Ja ich schnapp zu, weil ich das so gut kann

Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil
Ich schnappe gern, das ist mein Lieblingsspiel
Ich schleich mich an die Mama ran
Und zeig ihr wie ich schnappen kann

Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schni Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

Ich bin Schnappi, das kleine Krokodil
Und vom Schnappen, da krieg ich nicht zu viel
Ich beiß dem Papi kurz ins bein
Und dann, dann schlaf ich einfach ein

Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

Schnee Schna Schnappi (ja!)
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp (ja!)
Schnee Schna Schnappi (¡Hola!)
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I come from Egypt, that lies directly on the Nile
First I lay in an egg
Then schnee, schna, snap, I got free

Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I have sharp teeth, and they are very beautiful
I’ll snap at whatever I can snap
Yes I snap too, because I can do it so well

Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp
Schnee Schna Schnappi
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
I snap gladly, it is my favorite game
I creep up on Mama, who runs
And I show her how well I can snap

I'm your boogie man that's what I am
I'm here to do whatever I can
Be it early mornin' late afternoon
Or at midnight it's never too soon

I am Schnappi, the little crocodile
And from snapping, there war I not too much (WTF?)
I bite Papa briefly on his leg
And then, then I simply go to sleep

With Perfection, you've got to
Move out fast, move out fast,
Or the pieces pop out
Before you put in the last

Schnee Schna Schnappi (yes!)
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp (yes!)
Schnee Schna Schnappi (Greetings from Barcelona!)
Schnappi Schnappi Schnapp

Thanks steve-o.  I never could find a decent translation online.  Especially not such a creative one.

I have this sudden urge to sing both songs while gleefully using a chainsaw on a collection of cute cuddly kittens.
Whisper words of wisdom.
Everytime you hear an explosion in space, a kitten dies. Won't you think of the kittens?
