I was thinking back to my first year of secondary school, my first year of lessons in German. My teacher was absolutely brilliant, and I was lucky to have her the three years after, too. She was the one who played this song for an assignment, and that was the day I thought: what a great song! We had to find out where it was about, so here it is:

Peter Fox is singing about a house by the lake where he wants to go to since he knows all in the city he lives in. He wants to go to the unknown, have a wife, 20 children and 100 grandchildren.

I don’t know if I’d be happy with 20 children and 100 grandchildren, but I am happy with his song! Enjoy:
