El presidente – Marteria songtexte

Yeah, yeah, yeahhh
Von Butterfly zum Schmetterlingszüchter
Betrachtest deine Schnapsfässer ganz nüchtern
Nimmst das schwarze Weiß, dein Meisterwerk heißt Zebraherden
Bist Asthmatiker, doch willst eigentlich Trompeter werden
Sternzeichen: Elefant, die Welt aus Porzellan
Ein Briefträger ohne Postleitzahl’n
Ein Baumfäller mit Nagelfeile
Kannst nicht schwimmen, doch wohnst am Kap der guten Hoffnung und bist Bademeister
Dein harter Kern wird weichgespült versuri-lyrics.info
Ein Schweizer Uhrwerk ohne Zeitgefühl
Rammst den Eisberg, gehst im Eismeer unter
Ein Orchester ohne Dirigent, das einfach immer weiter spielt. Songtexte Marteria – El presidente
Stewardess mit Flugangst, depressiver Clown
Stehst unter Strom, doch pinkelst gegen diesen Zaun
Hebamme mit Kinderhass, Öko mit Monster-Trucks
Spiderman mit Spinn’nphobie, ‘ne Nadel, die kein’n Kompass hat
Friedensaktivist und Bordsteinschläger
Ein vom Pech verfolgter Schornsteinfeger
Deutsche-Bahn-Chef ist pünktlich beim Privatjet
Füllt Champagner ab in Portweingläser
Fensterputzer – deine Brille ist verdreckt
Sagst, dass du meditierst, doch die Stille ist nicht echt
King Kong ohne Hochhaus, vom Milliardär zur Klofrau
Egal wie schön das Wort, bei deiner Stimme wird mir schlecht.(el presidente)
El Presidente – Werd’ doch einfach Präsident
El Presidente – Regier doch gleich die ganze Welt
El Presidente – Du hast dafür genug Talent
Druck dein Gesicht auf unser Geld
El Presidenteee – Werd’ doch einfach Präsident
Presidenteee – Regier doch gleich die ganze Welt
El Presidenteee – Du hast dafür genug Talent
Druck dein Gesicht auf unser Geld
El Presidente.
El Presidenteee. El Presidenteee – Werd’ doch einfach Präsident
El Presidenteee – Regier doch gleich die ganze Welt
El Presidenteee – Du hast dafür genug Talent
Druck dein Gesicht auf unser Geld
El Presidenteee – Werd’ doch einfach Präsident
Presidente – Regier doch gleich die ganze Welt
El Presidenteee – Du hast dafür genug Talent
Druck dein Gesicht auf unser Geld

Genieß deine Zeit bis zur Revolution!

Der erste tighte weisse – DCVDNS songtexte

(x2)
DCVDNS songtexte
Video weisse Ich war bloß ein weißer Rapper
Der erste tighte weiße Rapperrr. Mathers unterschrieb’ ich nach Verhandlung aber doch den letzten Eminem-Vertrag
Eine Menge Fans sind am Start, jetzt hängen sie am Arsch
Meine CDs unter den zehn besten Plätzen der Charts
Letztendlich nicht schwarz, doch Raplegende nah
Wie .., DMX, Method Man und Nas
Auf Tour mit MC Basstard, auf Tour mit Genetikk
Auf Tour mit King Kool Savas und auf Tour mit Cro
Doch für die Fans von ‘nem Perser, ‘nem Türken und Italienern galt ein bleicher deutscher Rapper nur als Hurensohn
Es ist wie mit den Hatern im Netz
Die sich gegen mich, meine Raps und alles was ich mache verschwören
Die mich eines Tages feiern und ich ihnen dann am liebsten verbieten würde, jemals meine Platten zu hören
Ich habe Groupies, die meine Kacke fressen würden nur damit sie meinen Schwanz lecken dürfen
Ganz kleine, schwanzgeile Topmodels mit gebleichter Muschi
Langen Beinen, die sich vor ‘nem Jahr noch auf die schwarzen Männer stürzten
Auf den Alben rapp’ ich übertrieben, aber nach meinen Konzerten, sagen meine Fans, ich wäre live noch besser
Deshalb muss ich heute Fotos, Autogramme geben
Und genau für diese Leute war ich damals nur ein weißer Rapper. Ich war bloß ein weißer Rapper
Der erste tighte weisse Rapper. (x2)
Als ein Perser mich entdeckte, sich traut’, an mich zu glauben
Rieb ich mir die Augen und er wurde wahr, der Traum
Ging nach Berlin, schlief zwei Wochen lang auf der Couch
Bei ihm, ich schrieb mein Album, nahm es auf, er brachte es raus
Doch machte weiter noch alles alleine versuri-lyrics.info
Nur für paar Dinge fehlte mir noch ein kleines bisschen an Wissen und Hilfe
Ein bisschen von Nima Najafi-Hashemi
Ein bisschen von Jayo
Ein bisschen von Eko
Heute bin ich bei der Universal-Urban-Abteilung gesignt
Am Anfang boten sie ‘nen zweistelligen Betrag
Aufgrund diverser Parallelen mit M.
Songtexte DCVDNS – Der erste tighte weisse
Ich war bloß ein weißer Rapper
Der erste tighte weisse Rapper. (x2)
Der erste tighte Weiße seit dem letzten tighten Nicker
Deutsche Rapper mussten Ausländer sein
Deswegen wollte niemand an mich glauben
Doch ich übte Rap in meinem Zimmer
Meine Mama hat mich jeden Morgen aus dem Bett geworfen
Mit den Worten: „Such’n Job, du faules Schwein!“
Ich sagte: „Nein, ich werde Rapper!“ Sie: „Halts Maul, du bist weiß!“
Ich steh’ auf und schreib’ weit über tausend Zeil’n
Noch bis mitten in die Nacht, meine Finger blutig und wund
Und ohne Publikum und Gage gab es meine ersten Auftritte
Auf der faulen Haut sitzen, kein Interesse, keine Zeit für and’re Dinge
Nur noch Rap, mein Verhalten glich einem Autisten
Niemand hat den Weißen ernst genommen
Aber meine Kabine ging in Flammen auf, wegen den krassen Flows
Keiner wusste von dem besten deutschen Rapper
Deshalb war ich in der Schule nur der Klassen-Clown mit der blassen Haut
Ich sagte, dass ich rappen kann – sie lachten mich aus
Rappen kann jeder, doch nicht auf einer Stufe mit mir
Wie Blut im Hirn flutet Hip-Hop in den Adern
Aber wegen meinen blonden Haar’n, bekam ich keinen Fuß in die Tür
Den Immigranten wird alles geglaubt, aber kaum rapp’ ich vom Plattenbau, Waffengebrauch, Straßen und Raub
Ist es Ironie wegen der Farbe der Haut
Junge, du kannst mir vertrau’n, ich hab’ auch Kacke gebaut
Die anderen nahmen in ‘ner Gesangskabine auf
Ich hatte Billig-Equipment, aber das meiste Talent
Die allerbesten Lyrics und die allerbesten Rapskills
Instrumentals, aber weißen Akzent
Feil am Fragment, keine Zeit zum Arbeiten und alle meine Freunde sahen Hip-Hip bloß als Zeitverschwender
Flowte wie kein anderer, doch konnte machen, was ich wollte
Für die ganzen Ander’n war ich nur ein weißer Rapper.

Du musst jetzt bisschen ‘was machen, du musst eine Schippe drauflegen
Wenn wir uns treffen, find’ ich alles super, aber scheiße wie es ausgeht
Ich meine nicht dein Ausseh’n und auch nicht dein sexy Lächeln
Aber komm mal in die Pötte, das ist mittlerweile schon das sechste Treffen
Bei mir steigt die Vorfreude (hey), du hast keine Chance heute (no)
Die Finger gespitzt, ich will in den Schlitz, jag’ maximal die Beute. Ja, uh! Ich muss heute kommen, muss, muss, muss! Schluss mit dem Schmollen, Schluss mit dem Schmoll’n! Du musst mir geben.

Although not a professional photographer, Mr Powell said the social history and architecture kept him motivated to take more photos.He has 3,000 images catalogued in a spreadsheet detailing the locations and date the photos were taken. (Supplied: Steve Powell)
“When the kids were small we would travel for Christmas and I would have deals with them saying, ‘Let dad take a couple of post office photos and you get an ice block’,” he said.”With my wife it was one post office for one antique shop.”Mr Powell said he hoped to start a website to keep the photos curated for generations to come. Meet the Brisbane man who has captured the changing face of more than 800 post offices throughout Australia.Steve Powell travelled far and wide to take photos of post office buildings, from small country towns to the nation’s capital.He had noticed that more and more post office buildings were becoming cafes or restaurants.

“Many of the post offices I have photographed are no longer post offices as Australia Post have moved them inside shopping centres,” he said.”The architecture of them varies so much and that’s part of the interest is to see that variety of architecture.”

Food truck uses rescued ingredients to feed those in need

(ABC News: Laura Brierley Newton)
“It’s often quite surprising the sort of food that we do pick up from different supermarkets and restaurants,” Mr Harvey said.”We had about 10 kilograms of fillet steak that we roasted rare and we did a nice steak sandwich.”It was just a steak sandwich with some hand-cut wedges, and a veg lasagne that was made in our Cooking for a Cause session last night.”We just want to do things that are appealing to everybody that comes.”Mr Harvey said the hope was for the OzHarvest food truck to be able to travel, within reason, to wherever demand comes from.

Travis Harvey, the executive chef, said the project was as much about filling hungry bellies, as it was filling them with healthy food.”So, we’re looking at balancing diets and really making sure that we have really fresh vegetables, a reasonable amount of protein — as much as we can,” he said. (ABC News: Laura Brierley Newton)
“So, it’s hard to survive … but with places like this, it makes it that little bit easier.”Matthew said he lived alone and found it tough to find the money, motivation, ability, and produce to cook and eat well.”At least with places like this you get that bit of [the] nutrition your body needs,” he said. It’s beauty that they can deliver things like that.”Matthew, another resident said such services meant a lot.”I get Centrelink these days so it’s hard to survive after rent — you get like $300 and I’ve got two dogs,” he said.

“We probably don’t pick up as much [protein] as we would like, but we’re making things fresh and healthy in every meal, being mindful of sodium levels, and all those sort of things.”‘Services like this help me get by’Kaye Hookie has lived in Redfern for three decades and said services like OzHarvest’s food truck were a huge help, especially when she was also trying to feed her grandchildren.”I wouldn’t be able to make ends meet — I live from fortnight to fortnight,” she said.

Travis Harvey wants to take the truck out as often as possible to wherever there is demand. When food rescue charity OzHarvest first started up, the organisers had a pipe dream: to run a food truck that could visit and feed communities in need.They wanted to deliver hot, healthy and pre-made meals — or even cook on-site.Now, the organisation has made good on that plan, making its maiden delivery of food to a community in inner-Sydney.Around 100 residents from Redfern’s community housing blocks braved a winter morning, to get either a steak sandwich or a slice of vegetarian lasagne.

He’s not going anywhere ever again,” she said. “His first good meal was the bacon out of my bacon, lettuce and tomato sanga.”Mr Andrews took Bobby to Broken Hill Pet Rescue, which had him taken on by a foster carer while images of the cat were circulated on social media.Owner had given up hopeEventually Bobby was reunited with owner Georgia Luckraft, who said she had just about given up hope.

BMX mum’s ride from spectator to world titles contender

When Jaqueline Taheny first took her son to the BMX track, she never thought it would be her who would one day be racing at a world championship event.After competing at the national championships in Brisbane earlier this year, the 43-year-old Darwin mum was invited to the UCI BMX world titles in South Carolina.It’s been eight years since she first turned the crank on her BMX adventure.”My eldest son Axel started racing and I got bored of watching so I thought I’d have a go,” Taheny said.”A lot of people thought I was mad.”She said there were five other women racing at her local BMX club when she started, and the amount of older women competing had dwindled in recent years.Although their numbers were low, Taheny said women still gave the men a run for their money on the track.”Some of us girls get out there and actually do better than the boys,” she laughed.’Pretty cool mum’Axel said he was jealous of his mum’s achievement, especially when it was through him that she got involved in the sport.”I reckon I’ve got a pretty cool mum and I’m going to cheer for her and do the best I can to get her over the finish line in a good position,” he said. Photo:
Ms Taheny says she hopes to inspire more older women to get involved in competitive BMX. (ABC Radio Darwin: Mark Rigby)
Taheny said she felt proud that by representing Australia at the world championships she was able to promote BMX to women.She said even though it was labelled an extreme sport, anyone could participate in BMX.”If you want to go slow, go slow. Photo:
Ms Taheny says the sun is far from setting on her BMX career. If you’re more confident, you can go faster.”I always say to the ladies that it’s addictive and fun and you can go at your own pace.”Up for the challengeTaheny will compete against riders from 30 countries at next month’s world championships.And although she ranks highly in Australia, she was under no illusion that her tilt towards glory would be easy.She said while the high level of the competition excited her, it was the world championship crowds she was most looking forward to. (ABC Radio Darwin: Mark Rigby)
“I really think the atmosphere over there is going to be awesome.”The noise of the cheer squads is going to be a great thing and hopefully we’ll get in the finals.”

“He would be with us one minute and dashed off the next. And it’s to help them have a great life,” Mr Waites said.The athlete’s favourite training is to run marathon distances along the beaches near his home.He has also competed in major cycling races and a range of other sports.”I’ve done powerlifting and won gold medals in that. (Supplied: Junee Waites)
Local community and businesses support runJamie Klemm, who operates a local bus company, is the chairman of the Perth2Pambula Dane’s Dream Foundation, which over the past couple of years has brought together a range of business sponsorships.The sponsorships and community donations are covering the expenses of undertaking the massive run.Ms Klemm said the foundation had a target of raising $500,000, with in-kind and cash donations currently around $250,000.”The volunteers who are on the road with Dane will keep rallying up support for Dane in each town that they go through,” she said.Mr Waites has chosen to donate the funds to Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect), a service provider for people with autism; the research organisation AutismCRC; and the mental health service Beyond Blue.A message of hope after a difficult journeyIt has not been an easy journey for Mr Waites.Ms Waites said like many people with autism, he was prone to depression. And then I run free. And also I’ve won medals in ten-pin bowling,” he said. And once we started to do that, then Dane could look at life through our eyes.”

Dane Waites is running from Perth to Pambula in memory of his father, Rod, and to raise awareness and funding for people with autism and depression. I’m good at climbing out ladders,” he said, with the big smile that is well known throughout his community.”I enjoy my life, and get out in the community to be free. He has taken control. Photo:

Ms Waites has written a book about the family’s journey with autism, and in 2014 was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for her advocacy for people with autism.”Dane has been in that black pit. And it’s to give them hope and it’s to give them freedom.” I’m not pretending it’s easy but it can happen.”He has the ability to make such a wide cross-section of individuals feel good about themselves simply by his presence.”However, Mr Waites points out, “This run is not about me. Photo:
Dane shows the chart he uses to indicate his level of happiness or level of depression. We were told to place him in institutions on three occasions.”She and her husband Rod rejected that advice and instead adjusted their lives to raise their only child.”My husband and I would say to each other ‘If we could just allow him to enter our world — to be happy’.”But before we could do that, we had to learn to look at life through Dane’s eyes. Dane Waites’s dream to run across Australia began after he won a bronze medal for Australia at the 2003 Special Olympics World Games.After 14 years of training he will set off from Perth on Sunday to run more than 4,000 kilometres back home to Pambula on the New South Wales far south coast.Mr Waites is an elite athlete who was born with autism spectrum disorder, and developed a passion for running as young child.”Running clears my head. I love dancing, every Friday night.”Ms Klemm said Mr Waites had a high profile in the community because of his sporting achievements, and because he was so often seen running and socialising.”Dane himself is what inspires people to support the cause,” she said.”If I was finding out today that my child has autism, Dane would give me hope.”

Mr Waites’s passion for running has taken him around the world and connected him, but for his parents it began as a shock.”That was a nightmare. And also I run like the wind,” he said.He plans to run up to 50 kilometres a day, six days a week, assisted by a team of volunteers with support vehicles and a motorhome, while raising money for autism and mental health charities.”It’s to find out why families have got autistic sons and daughters. In places like shopping malls, or beaches.”And once he started there was no stopping him.”The family was living in Melbourne, but when Mr Waites was 18 they decided to move to the Bega Valley because “we realised he would need space”.The builder of their new farmhouse turned out to be a sportsman, who trained with Mr Waites to enter the City to Surf race in Sydney.”That’s when he realised you can go into running as a real thing,” Ms Waites said. Every day is a challenge,” she said.”No, he doesn’t see the world as I see the world, but he’s learned that he is a very valued and respected and important part of that world and he has an equal role to play.”He has a great life because he has chosen to. (ABC South East NSW: Bill Brown)
The bottom of the scale at six is the image of a black pit with a ladder in it.”That’s the black pit, and there’s a ladder in there, and I climb out of the ladder. It meant we lost him on a regular basis,” Ms Waites said. “He lived in his own world. Photo:

“It’s a fun way to include people and get them together, both the young and old, through delicious food.”Both the food tours and our annual $2 food trail give people from further afield and locals alike the chance to learn more about the thriving community.”The tours began when experienced chef Tony Ching took people to yum cha and afterwards showed them how to shop in local markets and Asian grocers.The $2 food trail, which runs each season, gives residents the chance to explore more than 124 dishes around the suburb.Sharing culture through foodRestaurateur David Siomin brings his family’s Chinese food flavours to the trail showing a different side of Chinese cuisine.”My family comes from the border of China and Russia, so we have very strong flavours different to normal Chinese food with heavier flavours,” he said.”Sometimes we dull some of the flavours down to get people trying the dishes before we build to the full taste.”

He said food had been a perfect way to bring the community together.”Sunnybank is very multicultural and there are different cuisines here and we love talking over food,” Mr Siomin said.”When you see people come together and learn, you want to provide more for them.”Everyone loves eating and it’s a comfort for people.”During the tours and trails people learn how to buy ingredients from the local area to make Asian dishes at home.”People are enjoying trying new things now and many people will ask questions about the style of food and try it for themselves,” Mr Siomin said.”This enables us to share our hints and tips with the community.”The $2 Sunnybank Food Trail runs on Saturday from 2:00pm to 8:00pm, while the Experience Sunnybank food tours run throughout the year.

New South Wales and Queensland dominate the sport and have the most active league seasons.The wheelchair State of Origin, held for the past three years, was won earlier this month by NSW which remains undefeated.”I have arthritis in my knees which means I can’t run,” Ms Moulang said.”Friends of mine [playing wheelchair basketball] invited me to rugby league and it was the most amazing game I ever saw.”It’s like a family once you join in.” Sometimes you do fall on the floor but you are still strapped into the chair.”When the sport started in Australia, most players were recruited from other wheelchair sports like basketball which Mr Cannane has been playing for 25 years.The game is all inclusive and allows able-bodied players to be a part of the team, although only two able-bodied members are allowed on the field at one time. It will only take time to grow.”Growing league domesticallyCherie Moulang, captain of the first Australian women’s rugby league team and also the Penrith Panthers, said the league was hoping to spread the game to Western Australia. When Craig Cannane was paralysed by a motorcycle accident at age 18, he thought he would never play rugby league again.Damage to his L1 vertebrae left him an incomplete paraplegic — his left leg is paralysed while he has use of his right leg.But six years ago he was introduced to wheelchair rugby league and his passion for the game was reignited.”I’ve played rugby league since I was nine,” Mr Cannane said.”So after my accident I thought I’d never play again and that I’d only have to sit and watch it.”Being Australian, rugby league is a big thing so when it came here, nothing was going to stop me playing it.”

“Without a doubt, it’s impossible not to [ram the wheelchairs] to get a tag,” Mr Cannane said.”Sometimes we’re moving at 20 kilometres an hour so the impact is pretty hard.”People are scared to play initially. Photo:
