Another try:
Dschinghis Khan - Der Klabautermann 1982 - YouTube

Lyrics translated:
Hobgoblin


The fog was thick and dense
One could not even see his hand before the eyes
The ship navigated through the sea without a sound
The navigator saw nothing anymore
The crew was full of fear
And they all drank too much rum
So that no disaster would happen today
They sang this old song:


Hey hey hobgoblin - our ship is your home
Huh huh and if you want to we'll all drown in the sea
Hey hey hobgoblin - another glass of rum on this
Huh huh take our word a sailor won't be knocked for six (not knocked down)
A sailor won't be knocked for six


The cook has hidden in the cabinet
The mate hid himself below deck
The navigator has goosebumps
And the captain was screaming loudly:


Hey hey hobgoblin - our ship is your home
Huh huh and who fears - all but us
Hey hey hobgoblin - everyone on board knows
Huh huh you're only such an old water ghost
Such an old water ghost


Hey captain - Ahoy - We've seen something - What exactly? - No idea
Is it an iceberg? No! - Is it a white shark? - No!
Is it an atoll? - No? Is it a hobgoblin? Yes!


His laughter goes right through them
Don't touch me, hobgoblin
Draw us into the wet grave
I'm so afraid, hobgoblin
The storm comes up, the thunder bangs
Now it only starts, hobgoblin
The lightning strikes through the night and he laughs


Hey hey hobgoblin - our ship is your home
Hey hey hobgoblin - all talk about you only
Huh huh and the one who hears you
Will never forget your laughter
Hey hey hobgoblin - nothing can happen to this ship
Huh huh we'll never
Never go down
Never go down

As a little bonus:


We're all in this together
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay...

Cleopatra reduced big man Caesar
To a little boy in a night
And Ghenghis Khan
Actually fathered only three children
And Schmidt
Got his Strauß1
And Strauß
Got his Schmidt
Napoleon got his Waterloo
There's billions of people on this Earth
And you are one of them - hey hey

We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay

Yeah, Cassius Clay is knocking you out
And Khrushchev is banging his shoe
A wallflower is waiting for her man forever
And Heino is singing along
People in the city dream of the quiet countryside
The farmer dreams of the big city
For that's the way it is
Everybody wants what the other one's got - hey hey

We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay

And Mona Lisa
Will still be smiling
When we've run out of reasons to smile
And we're singing in German
Even though Germans prefer listening to English these days
Alice2 is talking about feminism
The pastor's talking about celibacy
And that's what they call revolution
And now look where it got us - hey hey

We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
We're all in this together - la dee la dee o-kay
