It's not "pretend German! "Kom miene zu spat" (although he mipronounces "miene" means "I am late!" "Sein Punktlich" means "Be on time!" Later he says in English, "and I can't be late." I don't know what the rest of it translates too, but I'm pretty sure an international artist like Tom Waits wouldn't just make up something to try to sound German.
I read somewhere that the musical play "Alice" written and produced by Tom's wife, for which Tom performed the music was first performed in Germany. Also, the play is a reinterpretation of the famous Alice In Wonderland, so this is most likely the song of the March Hare.
