The Lyrics

The traditional German dirndl became popular in the 1800s as country/peasant dress. It then gained popularity in Nazi Germany as a return to traditional rather than contemporary "vulgar" dress coming out of Paris and the US. Postwar, it is popular during Oktoberfest and associated with beer maids, busty beer maids! Then a drop for decades and now a resurgance with designer dirndls out of Munich. Germans are starting to once again reject globalization trends and turn back to tradition. How ironic... or have we seen this before? ;-)
Return of the dirndl
… about time

Designers “up” traditional
In Bavaria

It’s low-cut, tightly laced
Pushes bosoms proud
Perfect for the leggy
Helps a German beauty to stand-out

[Patterns with silk- no more "one in a crowd"]

Return of the dirndl
It’s about time
Munich pride

Old is new
Quite a view
Great reviews
Like turning back the clock
And they don’t care
About the Nazis*
It’s no culture shock

[Mocked, they are not]

Return of the dirndl
It’s about time
(Globalization rejection in Germany)
* Hitler and the NSDAP approved of traditional costumes as part of their efforts at cultural and communal restoration. Hitler’s pre-war time in Germany was largely spent with the Volk in festive celebrations and the dirndl was very popular back them with German women and the BDM.
