Der Gockelhahn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Gockelhahn, der Gockelhahn,
Der hat zwei große Sporen an
Und geht so stolz und keck einher
Als wenn ein großer Herr er wär'.
Herr Gockelhahn, Herr Gockelhahn,
Hat Sporen und nicht Stiefel an,
Hat Sporen und nicht Lederschuh,
Hat Sporen und kein Pferd dazu.
Herr Gockelhahn, Herr Gockelhahn,
Er ist ein lust'ger Reitersmann;
Herr Reiter zu Fuß, wir lachen dich aus,
Reit' hurtig nur in das Hühnerhaus!
