German term or phrase: Song Lyrics
I would just like the following verse translated. Should be no problem!

Sie ist ein Modell und sie sieht gut aus
Ich nehme sie heut' gerne mit zu mir nach Haus
Sie wirkt so kühl, and sie kommt niemand 'ran
Doch vor der Kamera da zeigt sie was sie kann
Dan George
She's a model ...
Explanation:
I can do better than that ... I can do all three verses! This is the standard translation released in the English version of the song (by Kraftwerk!)

She's a model and she's looking good
I'd like to take her home that's understood
She plays hard to get, she smiles from time to time
It only takes a camera to change her mind

She's going out tonight but drinking just champagne
And she has been checking nearly all the men
She's playing her game and you can hear them say
She is looking good, for beauty we will pay

She's posing for consumer products now and then
For every camera she gives the best she can
I saw her on the cover of a magazine
Now she's a big success, I want to meet her again

Which can be found at:

A more literal translation:

She's a model and she looks good.
I'd like to take her home with me tonight.
She looks so cool - noone comes close.
But in front of the camera, she shows what she can.

Hope this helps.
