Du hast viel geweint
Im Geist getrennt
Im Herz vereint
Wir sind schon sehr lang zusammen
You've cried a lot
In spirit separated
In heart united
We've been together a very long time

Du Hast (You Have)
Du, du hast, du hast mich
Du, du hast, du hast mich
Du, du hast, du hast mich
Du, du hast, du hast mich, du hast mich
You, you have, you have me
You, you have, you have me

Du Hast by Rammstein is a song about a person being asked to make a commitment to someone, but refusing to do so. It is using a play on words based on the common wedding vows. The lyrics repeat the phrase "Du hast mich gefragt" (You asked me) and the response "Nein, nein" (No, no). The song explores the idea of not wanting to make a commitment to someone, using a play on words to refer to the thin line between marital love and hate, and between saying yes and no.
