Translation:

Saint Michael Archangel,
Little saint show a sign of life,
You cant relish in your past glory,
Because now is when I really need you.
Saint Michael Archangel,
Little saint show a sign of life,
You cant relish in your past glory,
Because now is when I really need you.

Today is when Satan puts on his best bowtie,
Today is when the Saints arent so many,
Today is when the Gods are merely Go With Gods
Today is when Sin is strolling around without a care.

Saint Michael my little saint, please my little saint..
Saint Michael Archangel,
Little saint dont stare dumbfounded,
Because I am being torn apart from disenchantment,
I cried, I cried, I cried
And now its better if I just sing it,
Saint Michael my little saint, please my little saint.
Saint Michael Archangel,
Little saint dont stare dumbfounded,
Because I am being torn apart from disenchantment,
I cried, I cried, I cried
And now its better if I just sing it,

Today is when Mephisto is on the ball,
Today is when cows are not such cows,
Today is when bread costs an arm & a leg,
Today is when life has me aroused,
Saint Michael little saint, please, my little saint.

Saint Michael Archangel,
Massive Saint, dont let me fall in temptation,
Cut down my bed, shrink that mattress,
Dont say that he loves me, how do I know that he loves me.
Saint Michael Archangel,
Massive Saint, dont let me fall in temptation,
Cut down my bed, shrink that mattress,
Dont say that he loves me, how do I know that he loves me.

Turn me into a saint because desire sings so loudly,
Turn me into something as credible as the impossible,
Turn me into his mirror or I will leave you,
Turn your back on me, and I will drop your skirt.
Michael.... my little saint.

Get with it Michael, Mikey my brother,
A clean, pure & safe job is all I ask.
Get with it Michael, Mikey my brother,
Call him my love because that is how I call him.

I will repay you when he is in my bed,
I will repay you when he is in my bed,
Michael dont act dumb dont act dumb Michael,
Because the Virgin is pleading you too or we end it all today,
A tabla rasa.
You heard.. dont pretend.

Get with it Michael, Mikey my brother,
A clean, pure & safe job is all I ask.
Get with it Michael, Mikey my brother,
Call him my love because that is how I call him.

I will repay you when he is in my bed,
I will repay you when he is in my bed,
Michael dont act dumb dont act dumb Michael,
Because the Virgin is pleading you too or we end it all today,
A tabla rasa.
You heard.. dont pretend.
