I knew it was hopeless
the moment that you stepped aboard
cause your eyes’ horizons
opened up a whole new world
And I knew I was done for
the moment that you said to me:
‚Hey captain, is there a place
on your little ship of fools for me?’

And I knew I was in trouble
when I said to you: ‚Je suis très enchanté, madame!’
And you said: ‚Likewise.’
And things would get complicated
when I said: ‚Heavy Metal iz a poze’
and you replied: ‚Hardtrock iz a laifschtail!
Baby, ain’t that right?’

And we were off the charts
when I tried to explain
I’m already married to the sea
I don’t want to cause her any pain
Head over heels
the moment you replied
In that case can I come along
Cause you see I’m a pirate’s bride

And I knew this would get tricky
when we kissed and I said:
‚I never felt this way before’
And you said: ‚Likewise.’
And when you took my hand
and I said: ‚I#m not sure where to go from here...’
And you just said: ‚But maybe I might.’
With such a sly smile...

But I’m afraid you’re mistaking me for someone else
My eye-patch is fake, you know?
Just like my wooden leg, my hook and my beard
And sooner or later it will come to show
That my sneer is really just a stiff upper lip
If you’re looking for Jack Sparrow – he is on another ship
I’m from the look-but-don’t-touch-
And I will only cause you pain

And I’m so sorry
I put that saddened look upon your face
when I said:
I wish things would be easier
and you said: „Likewise.“
And when I said
all I’m trying is to be good
and you said
this isn’t good, this is cowardice
or what’s the word – Feigheit

And when I said
oh, you can’t be my sea
but the air that I breathe
ain’t that something –
say likewise
But you just muttered something
under your breath
and for a moment it seemed as if
you were starting to cry

My, my, my, my
come on, say likewise
la, la, la, la
maybe another time
