I found this track by TOOL tonight:

The Eggs Of Satan


As I am learning German - sorry, Deutsche - SOME of this made sense to me, but I would love extra details.

I know it is a 'Song' about a recipe for 'The eggs of Satan.'

"Der eihr Von Satan" (The eggs of Satan)

Next line mentions something about sugar, but as I am still learning German, I can't say for sure.  Being a recipe, perhaps one cup of sugar?

Next line - teaspoon of salt?
Next line - Something about adding hashish?
Next line - Add a cup of flour?
Next line - Something about a tablespoon of sugar?
Next line - ??? Lost.....
Next line - ??? Lost.....
Next line - And no eggs.

Lost now!!!!

I will continue to listen to this one, but the music in the background is making it rather hard.  It is obviously meant to sound somewhat Hitler/Nazi or perhaps even somewhat Kraftwerk?

I know the very last line in this is also "And no eggs."

It would seem to be a recipe for hash-cookies, but as I am not that way inclined, I won't be following this one, but I was interested from the German language side of things.

Did not listen to that because they want signing up to hear it.

Your German (Deutsch - no 'e' at the end) has a long way to go

The title suggests something else than a recipe when you consider that 'Eier' (eggs) is german slang for what aussies call 'balls' .

The BALLS of Satan?

The link SHOULD have worked.

Can anyone else say if they were able to play this?

YES - I am only a novice with German at the moment, so I will be making LOTS of mistakes - sorry.  

BUT - I am learning.....

Die Eier von Satan
Eine halbe Tasse Staubzucker
Ein viertel Teelöffel Salz
Eine Messerspitze türkisches Haschisch
Ein halbes Pfund Butter
Ein Teelöffel Vanillezucker
Ein halbes Pfund Mehl
Einhundertfünfzig Gramm gemahlene Nüsse
Ein wenig extra Staubzucker
Und keine Eier
In eine Schüssel geben
Butter einrühren
Gemahlene Nüsse zugeben
Und den Teig verkneten
Augenballgroße Stücke vom Teig formen
Im Staubzucker wälzen
Und sagt die Zauberwörter
„Simsalbim bambasala dusaladim“
Auf ein gefettetes Backblech legen
Und bei zweihundert Grad für fünfzehn Minuten backen
Und keine Eier
Bei zweihundert Grad fünfzehn Minuten backen
Und keine Eier


The balls of Satan
Half a cup of icing sugar
A quarter teaspoon of salt
A knife tip of Turkish hashish
Half a pound of butter
A teaspoon of vanilla sugar
Half a pound of flour
One hundred and fifty grams of ground nuts
A little extra icing sugar
And no eggs
Put in a bowl
Stir in the butter
Add ground nuts
And knead the dough
Shape the dough into the size of an eyeball
Roll in icing sugar
And says the magic words
"Simsalbim bambasala dusaladim"
Place on a greased baking sheet
And bake at two hundred degrees for fifteen minutes
And no eggs
Bake for fifteen minutes at two hundred degrees
And no eggs

I see old seagull man translates German very well, better than my rusty 50yo version .

So it looks its a recipe after all but grogster learnt his first German slang

I have no idea what the "Master Race" over in Germany eat, but we British are familiar with something called Devilled Eggs. The Americans are deeply into Devilled eggs too.

Many different recipes, here is just one:

No need at all to learn German just so you can learn these culinary secrets.
Cheers, Tony.
