    du hast mich does not mean 'you hate me' as is popularly believed. hast means have, while hasst means hate. big difference. 'du hast mich' means 'you have me', but that is not the whole sentence. it is actually 'du hast mich gefragt, und ich hab' nichts gesagt', which means, you have asked me, and i have not answered.

    hope this helps.

    Because it's sung, it has a dual meaning. Du hast mich literally means "You have me" Du hasst mich means "You hate me" They sound the same when spoken/sung

    Du haßt mich = you hate me

    Du hast mich = you have me

    the sentence goes :du hast mich gefragt und ich hab nichts gesagt= u (have) asked me and i (have) said nothing.

    translates verbatim to you have me.

    but they changed it to you hate me in the english version..

    you hate me

    ACTUALLY... I just looked up the lyrics.

    And it's kind of like the Lit song "you make me.... you make me complete.... you make me completely miserable.."

    They keep adding on to the sentence.

    So it starts out like you hate me.

    Then goes to you asked me

    Then goes on to "you asked me and I didn't answer"

    German is weird.
