Nerf Herder's, "She's a Sleestak"
The Lyrics:
Ich darf nicht essen die toten katzen,
Ich darf nicht trinken the blute aus der hamstern
German translation is "I can not eat the dead cats, I can not drink the blood of the hamsters". Of course the word "hamster" is itself German. And yes, the official lyrics in the cd's liner notes have the word "the" before "blute" as shown above.
