Rammstein Eifersucht lyric with English translation

Bin ich schöner
zerschneid mir das Gesicht
bin ich stärker
brich feige mein Genick
bin ich klüger
töte mich und iss mein Hirn
Hab ich dein Weib
töte mich und iss mich ganz auf
dann iss mich ganz auf

Bin ich ehrlicher
beiß mir die Zunge ab
bin ich reicher
dann nimm mir alles
bin ich mutiger
töte mich und iss mein Herz
Hab ich dein Weib
töte mich und iss mich ganz auf
dann iss mich ganz auf
doch leck den Teller ab

Es kocht die Eifersucht

Hab ich so glatte Haut
zieh sie in Streifen ab
Hab ich die klaren Augen
nimm mir das Licht
Hab ich die reine Seele
töte sie in Flammen
Habe ich dein Weib dann
töte mich und iss mich ganz auf
dann iss mich ganz auf
doch leck den Teller ab
Es kocht die Eifersucht
Am I more handsome
cut up my face
am I stronger
break my neck cowardly
am I smarter
kill me and eat my brain
Do I have your wife
kill me and eat me up completely
then eat me up completely

Am I more honest
bite off my tongue
am I richer
then take everything from me
am I more courageous
kill me and eat my heart
Do I have your wife
kill me and eat me up completely
then eat me up completely
but lick up the plate

Jealousy is cooking

Do I have smooth skin
pull it off in strips
Do I have clear eyes
take the light from me
Do I have a pure soul
kill it in flames
Do I have your wife, then
kill me and eat me up completely
then eat me up completely
but lick up the plate


The song lyrics deal with cannibalism brought on by jealousy (especially with the line,”Töte mich und iss mich ganz auf”.

This means,”Kill me and eat me up completely”) and jealousy. The song is also in the movie “Wing Commander”. This song has never been played live.

    The song was never played on live. The video “Eifersucht Live Aus Berlin” is fake.

    It may sound strange but the repetition: “kill me and eat me up completely then eat me up completely but lick up the plate” explains everything VERY clearly about jealousy and the attitude of the speaker about this. And to be even more precise then the song itself, I would add that before the second eating the first digestion process should have come to end with an end result that can size a plate.

    “Bon appetit” to all the jealous people!

    Why? Lol… I think it’s an awesome song..

  • Eszett

    @Mmejia, Wiener Blut makes me angry. I want to tore Till’s psychotic head off his body everytime I hear it.

  • Mmejia

    Eszett

    I personally prefer wiener blut and wollt ihr das bett in flammen. The first has that psychotic story that you just love from rammstein and the second has an awesome beat..

  • Mmejia

    I just realized how cool this song is. Till does the deep voice and if you listen closely there is kind of like a little scared persons voice in the background; which of course is till. Kind of giving the impression that till is fighting with himself and asking the inner him( the sane him) to stop being afraid and do what he says…

  • Eszett

    I completely agree på Tasha. I just love that psychotic laugh.

    How is it possible to love exactly ALL of Rammsteins zillion songs? But you have to agree with me, Frühling in Paris und Mutter must be the best? But all of them are epic. Just HELL OF EPIC!

  • Tasha

    I absolutely love his crazy laughter towards the end. It’s orgasmic.

  • Tiefling

    It might just be me, but I disagree witht he assessment that this song is simply about cannibalism. rather, it seems more like cannibalism is being used staire, a parody of sorts. He (the speaker)is asking this person of all the reasons this person seems to feel inferior to him and then challenging him to do something about it, implying that he doesn’t believe the other person will act on his distaste for the speaker. Then when he goes on with “hab ich dein weib”, he’s saying that this person’s hatred for the speaker is unfounded as he has not taken anything from the other person, and rather, the source of this person’s hatred is the fact he hates not the speaker but himself, hence is jealousy, because he wishes to be the speaker. When Till refers to cannibalism is being used as dare, as if to say “if you think ruining me will make you feel better go ahead, because I am not the one you hate.”
