You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

1. Der kleine Küfer


Wir Küfer, wir Küfer sind wackere Leut'!
Und schnitzten wir gestern, so klopfen wir heut';
Und klopfen wir heut, so ist morgen gemacht
Das Faß und der Bottich, noch eh' ihr's gedacht.
Dann füllen wir ein
Das Bier und den Wein,
Und trinken ein Gläschen auch zwischendrein. 

Wir Küfer, wir Küfer sind  --  Himmel, was soll's?
Da liegt nun der Bottich, ein Häufchen Holz! 
Ich klopfte so wacker, das klang so hell,
Und klopfen soll ja ein Küfergesell!
Doch hat, was gescheh'n,
Der Vater geseh'n,
Dann klopfet auch er, und ich weiß schon, wen!
