Я твой слуга, я твой работник

Hello!

This might be an odd request, as I already know "Ja tvoi sluga, ja tvoi rabotnik" means "I am your slave , I am your worker." But I don´t know what language this is.

This is from Kraftwerk´s song "The Robots". I believe I might be missing out on an important part of the song by not knowing what language is this (The rest of the song is in German, and there´s an English version)

So, if anyone can help me, It´d be greatly appreciated!

    Kasaky, I'm very thankful for reminding me the group's name - Kraftwerk. I am very nostalgic for their music, will listen tonight on Youtube!

    "Ja tvoi sluga, ja tvoi rabotnik" means "I am your slave , I am your worker."
    Not sure they really sing this (perhaps it only sounds like it?) but I will check:
    In Russian: "Я твой слуга, я твой работник." /Ya tvoy slugá, ya tvoy rabótnik./

    They used a "vocoder", so the sound is very distorted.

    That's right, confirmed :) Only they seem to stress the first syllable in "слуга". My favourite was "The Model" (don't know why). I've just listened both in English and German.

    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...
