Info about song
Hemmige (Inhibitions, scruples) was written and composed by Swiss troubadour Mani Matter (1936-1972). TRANSLATION: There are people who probably never would perform a song like I’m doing it right now. "Sing? No, no, never!", they say. Because they have inhibitions. Maybe they would rather like to be cheeky and see inhibitions as their weakness and worry about them. I know, it can make you angry or speechless. But sometimes, even if we don’t like it, it’s good to have inhibitions. What divides humans from chimpanzees? It’s not the bold skin, the missing tail. It’s not that they can climb trees better than us. It’s that we have inhibitions. Imagine men without inhibitions and there was a cute girl walking by. Now, we just look at her legs because of our inhibitions. And when you see what menaces the whole of mankind these days then I don’t just start seeing red but painting black. The only thing we can hope for is that we have inhibitions. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
