What is the origin of "Toll jemande* sein". For example "wenn du toll mir bist" in this song.


(Can someone please help me embed it? (Lol, what's that supposed to mean in this context?))

Can perhaps its usage be traced back to earlier languages?

  • Es heisst eindeutig "wenn Du treu mir bist". Deine Frage ist Quatsch, Du hast Dich verhört. – πάντα ῥεῖ Feb 11 '19 at 21:55


wenn du treu mir bist (faithful).

There is nothing like

Toll jemandem sein

Neither in the song nor in German in general.
