Sitting in a pool

Rudi Carrell was a popular entertainer in Germany, host of the long-running Rudi Carrell Show. Here he sits in a pool and sings in German as women swim around him.

Interesting bit in the Wikipedia article about how a sketch he did strained relations between Germany and Iran.

Never heard "City of New Orleans" done in German (my crappy German suggests that they only borrowed the music and none of the lyrics). Steve Goodman must be spinning in his grave.

Wow! It took me over a minute to get the English title of that song out! Anyhow, for those of you who don't know or can't remember here's Steve Goodman's version of it. Or, if you're more disposed to the popular version here's Willie Nelson & The Highwaymen.

Ever notice that German is not the most lyrical of languages?

The ladies are not very perky, perhaps the bad music or they are agents for the east German spy agency sent there as punishment.
