Mein Teil (4:32)

Cover of Reise Reise

From Reise Reise and 17 other releases

This song was inspired by the Rotenburg Cannibal.

“Teil” translates literally to “part” or “member,” but is German slang for penis. The chorus of “Mein Teil” (My Part) includes the line, “Denn du bist was du isst und ihr wisst was es ist. Es ist mein Teil,” which translates to “You are what you eat and you know what it is. It is my part” with “Du bist was du isst” being the famous catchphrase for the Swedish brand of crisp bread Wasa. The original quote was made by Ludwig Feuerbach, a German philosopher, expressing that everything a human consumes is taking influence on his mind and body.

“Mein Teil” was later remixed by the Pet Shop Boys.
