The Lyrics

We wrote this song to the tune of the Beatle's "Birthday," and it is about praying. It is in German, but I have translated it for you, so bear with me!
Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Du beten auch, ja (You pray too, yeah)
Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Wir werden beten alle zeit (We will pray all of the time)
Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Viele beten fur uns (Much praying for you)

Ja, wir beten im der kirche, kirche (Yeah, we pray in the church, church)
Ja, wir beten im der kirche, kirche (Yeah, we pray in the church, church)
Ja, wir beten im der kirche, kirche (Yeah, we pray in the church, church)

Wir alles must beten-BETEN (We all must pray-PRAY)
Wir kann beten fur imer-BETEN (We can pray for ever-PRAY)
Wir alles must beten-BETEN (We all must pray-PRAY)
BBBBEEEEEEEE-EEEEEETEN... (PPPPRRRAAAA-AAAAAYYYY...)

Wir alles must beten-BETEN (We all must pray-PRAY)
Wir kann beten fur imer-BETEN (We can pray for ever-PRAY)
Wir alles must beten-BETEN (We all must pray-PRAY)
Oh, BBBBEEEEEEEE-EEEEEETEN... (Oh, PPPPRRRAAAA-AAAAAYYYY...)

Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Du beten auch, ja (You pray too, yeah)
Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Wir werden beten alle zeit (We will pray all of the time)
Ich werde zu beten (I will pray)
Viele beten fur uns (Much praying for you)

Glad to see people dabbling in other languages. I'm working on a few in this vein, but it would help if I were fluent.
