lyrics

It’s time to sleep
It’s getting dark
My soother’s gone, what can i do
I need something else

I still can’t sleep
So very dark
Where is my mom? No-one to help
I can always suck my thumb

Schnipp, schnapp, Finger ab
Ungezog’ner Bub
Hörst nicht auf zum Fingerlutschen,
Neun sind noch da.

Someone is here
I’m not alone
There is someone, a monster here
I am so scared

Schnipp, schnapp, Finger ab
Ungezog’ner Bub
Hörst nicht auf zum Fingerlutschen,
Acht sind noch da.

What is this thing?
It hurts so much!
Where are my thumbs? They are not here
What do i do now?

Schnipp, schnapp, Finger ab
Ungezog’ner Bub
Hörst nicht auf zum Fingerlutschen,
Sieben sind noch da.

Schnipp, schnapp, Finger ab
- Please help me Mom
Ungezog’ner Bub
- Come get me quick
Hörst nicht auf zum Fingerlutschen,
- The monster got me, it got my thumbs
Sechs sind noch da.
- I promise I won’t suck them again

Schnipp, schnapp, Finger ab

(Chorus translation)
Snip, snap, finger off
Ill-mannered lad
Don’t stop to suck your finger
Nine/Eight/Seven/Six are still left)
