An outstanding (if cheesy) song from the Ferris Bueller's Day Off soundtrack, originally recorded by Wayne Newton in 1985 on The Best of Wayne Newton Now. "Danke Schoen" is German for "Thank you very much", and is pronounced "Donka Shane" (more or less). Ferris sings it during the parade with a bevy of beautiful frauleins dressed like St. Pauli Girl.... yow. Anyway, here are the trite but groovy lyrics:

Danke Schoen, darling, danke schoen...
Thank you for all the joy and pain.
Picture shows, second balcony,
was the place we'd meet,
second seat,
go Dutch treat,
you were sweet.

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen.
Thank you for walks down Lovers' Lane.
I can see, hearts carved on a tree,
letters inter-twined,
for all time,
yours and mine,
that was fine.

Danke schoen, darling, danke scheon.
Thank you for funny cards from Spain.
I recall, Central Park in fall,
how you tore your dress,
what a mess,
I confess,
that's not all.

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen.
Thank you for seeing me again.
Though we go, on our seperate ways,
still the memory stays,
for always,
my heart says,
"Danke schoen."

Danke schoen, auf wiedersehen, danke schoen....
