The song was famously covered by the German punk band Die Toten Hosen for their 2002 compilation album Reich & sexy II: Die fetten Jahre, from which it was released as a single.

The song was first covered in a concert in Rottweil, where only ladies could get in. Due to a popular demand, they decided to release it on an album.[1] For the single, a cooperation with Funny van Dannen resulted in a new song, "Junge Menschen, alte Menschen" and also another van Dannen song was recorded with the author himself.

On the single, which features a shot of the Rottweil concert as the cover, the name of the band is stylised as Die Toten H♀sen.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Olaf Heine.

In the video, different men "talk" about women. The band drives on the beach of Saint Peter Sued in a car with a loudspeaker on the roof, gathering male followers, till they see a woman on the road in front of them. The band members then get out of the car and go with the mass apparently to say "hello" to her.
