It's been pointed out that we haven't been too friendly to newbies recently, so I thought maybe I should put together a little something encouraging.....

Wilkommen (from Cabaret)

JG:

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!
Fremde, Etranger, newbie.
Glucklich zu sehen, je suis enchante,
Happy to see you, bliebe, reste, stay.

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome.
Im afp, au afp, to afp.

Meine Damen und Herren, Mesdames et Messieurs,
Ladies and Gentlemen! Guten Abend, bon soir,
good evening!
Wie geht's? Comment ca va? Do you feel good?
(yeah, I bet you do)
Wir sind euer freunde; nous sommes vos amis
We are your friends!

Und sagen
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome
Im afp, au afp, to afp.

Leave your troubles outside!
So--life is disappointing? Forget it!
We have no troubles here! Here life is beautiful...
The wit is beautiful...
Even the old farts are beautiful!

You see? I told you the old farts were beautiful.
And now presenting some afp folk!
AfPhantom! (He is so called because of the fact we rarely see him.)
Livi! (Oh you like Livi? Well too bad! So does AfPhantom.)
Peter! (Peter has a reputation, the reputation has a life. So does Peter these days)
Nattie! (Yes, Nattie is from America! But, she's a very cunning linguist!)
Dog! (Oh, Dog would you stop that! Already this week we have lost two newbies,
a schoolboy and three irritating trolls, like this.)
and Miss Kate! (Miss Kate is the baby. We're like parents to her. So
when she's bad we spank her. And she is very, very, very, very, very,
very bad)
AfPhantom, Livi, Peter, Texas, Dog... und Miss Kate.
Each and every one a genius! You don't believe me? Well, don't take my
word for it. Go ahead--read......Peter!

Afp folk:
Wir sagen

Im afp, au afp, to afp.

JG:
We are here to amuse you!
And now presenting more afp types:
Here they are!
Gid! Suzi!
Or is it...
Suzi! and Gid...
You know there's only really one way to tell the difference...
I'll show you later.
Mole (Oh Mole, dear, go easy on the filking!),
Ben (You know the funniest thing about Ben? There's nothing funny about
Ben!),
And finally, the toast of Melbourne, Fraulein Trina Rule!

Trina:
Hello, darlings!

JG:
Bleibe, reste, stay!

All:
Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome
(JG: That's Suzi.)
Im afp, au afp, to afp.

Happy to see you,
