The World Is Certainly Full of Things

This is fabulous. A literal translation of O Tannenbaum, so literal it basically sounds like Gogol Bordello is singing it (found on the internet, not translated by me, I don't speak German, so if there are mistakes don't get mad at me about it):

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
How loyal are your needles!
You're green not only
  in the summertime,
No, also in winter when it snows.
O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
How loyal are your needles!

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
You can please me very much!
How often has not at Christmastime
A tree like you given me such joy!
O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree,
You can please me very much!

O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree
Your dress wants to
  teach me something:
Your hope and durability
Provide comfort and strength
  at any time.
O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree,
That's what your dress should
  teach me.


START WEARING PURPLE WEARING PURPLE LA LA LA LA LA!

Erm. Sorry. Carry on.
