  • Ich bin in Hitze schon seit Tagen
    So werd ich mir ein Kahlwild jagen
    Und bis zum Morgen sitz ich an
    Damit ich Blattschuss geben kann

    Auf dem Lande auf dem Meer lauert das Verderben
    Die Kreatur muss sterben

    Sterben

    Ein Schmaltier auf die Läufe kommt
    Hat sich im höhen Reet gesonnt
    Macht gute Fährte tief im Tann
    Der Spiegel glänzt, ich backe an
    Der Wedel zuckt wie Fingeraal
    Die Flinte springt vom Futteral
    (Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil)
    Ich fege mir den Bast vom Horn
    Und gebe ein gestrichenes Korn

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Auf dem Lande, auf dem Meer lauert das Verderben
    Die Kreatur muss sterben

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Sterben

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Sie spart die Mündungsenergie
    Feiner Schweiß tropft auf das Knie

    Auf dem Lande, auf dem Meer lauert das Verderben
    Die Kreatur muss sterben

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Sterben

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Auf dem Lande, auf dem Meer lauert das Verderben

    Waidmanns, manns, manns, manns Heil

    Auf dem Lande, auf dem Meer

  • Lars from Germany@Nicolas from Belgium — "Kreatur" ("creature") is grammatically feminine, thus feminine pronouns are used. Grammatical gender very often does not overlap with real gender; for example, "Kind" ("child") is grammatically neuter and will be referred to with "es" ("it"). While this song can still be about sex, and probably is as pretty much all other Rammstein songs, the gender of the pronouns is insignificant.
  • Nicolas from BelgiumIf you look closely at the lyrics, you'll notice Till use female pronouns for the creature and talk about nuzzle a lot. This song is not about hunting, it's about rape culture.
  • Alex from GermanyNoteable fact:
    The song "Waidmanns Heil" is based on Till Lindemanns poem "Sautod" wich was released 2002 in poems book "Messer", the whole song is built from metaphors of hunters.
  • Janina from Colone, GermanyI love this song, it reminds me of my dad (hes a hunter) and my home..
