“Es Ist Burger-Zeit!” portrays the existential musings and frustrations of Peter Pepper, the fry cook who is destined (or doomed) to make burgers, climb ladders, and run from other foods trying to obliterate him. The arranger did the most he possibly could with the very little musical material from “Burger Time”, although the music and the game both hold a special place in his heart.


Was ist mein Ziel, wenn nicht burger zu machen?
Ich baue diese kleinen Fleisch-Pfählen für die hungrigen Kinder.
Ich laufe und stampfen zu zerstören diejenigen
die mir im Weg stehen
Doch wie lange muss ich tun dies für?
Wird dieser Alptraum enden?
Wird dieser Alptraum niemals enden?
Ich sollte zumindest werden Überstunden bezahlt.

What is my purpose if not to make burgers?
I make these tiny little meat pies for the little hungry children.
I will destroy those who dare to even try to hinder me,
All those who try to stop me.
However how long must I do this work?
Oh, will this nightmare end soon?
Please tell me this will end soon.
Will this perpetual nightmare never end for me?
If I have to put up with this I should be paid overtime!
