...those are the first few lines of a song that i cant get out of my head. I promise, i tried, but it keeps coming back...


It all started with a commercial on austrian TV. The biggest austrian jam manufactorer "Darbo" had a weired (but very interesting) ad, promoting one of their products with this song. (you can see the original version



It is performed by the former street artists "The Dresden Dolls", who describe their style as "Brechtian punk cabaret"...


American`s who name their band Dresden Dolls and their style "Brechtian punk cabaret", what can i say, love it! :lol:
