    This is a line in the song "Arbeit Nervt" from Deichkind.

    I can't make much sense of it. I don't know if "ma" is actually "mal" or maybe the bevarian way of saying "wir"... or something totally otherwise. Either way, I'm not sure how the whole sentence translates.

    Anyone have any interpretations?

    English but my first language was German
    Since noone has replied: I'd take both ma's as =mal. It's not that uncommon to heap up mals when speaking casually, or here where it represents a free syllable that gets the meter to work.
