Content:

The economic crisis has also hit Rosls small, brothel Menschenhaus [Peoples House] near the border, business is bad and two Mafiosi Kirschgarten and his assistant Bussibr are demanding protection money. To avoid this, the resourceful madam has the idea of offering the services of her two harlots Zuckergoscherl and Ferkelchen not for money, but on the basis of barter transactions which do not remain without consequences. At the same time, each character is striving towards his/her own personal happiness: the shy butcher Alfred has fallen in love with Zuckergroschl, who rejects him. The naive-dreamy harlot Ferkelchen takes her chances, but her attempts at seduction fail. There remains the question of whether feelings can be bought, and the value of human beings in times of turbo-capitalism

Sätze:

Kann man die Liebe denn kaufen?
Die Ballade von der krperlichen Demontage
Das Lied von der weiten Welt
Geh her
Grad weilst glaubst
Mach mit
Das Lied vom goldenen Handwerk
Misch dich nicht ein
Fr uns
Und ich mcht ja so gern
Do you like animals?
Eine Vene, mein Herr
Die Zeiten, sie drehn sich
Man msste blind sein
Das Studium des Grunzens
Jetzt sei nicht so gemein
So ein Wrmchen
Liebeslied
Ich will noch nicht sterben
Einmal muss Sperrstund sein
Was heit es Mensch zu sein?
