Wir lustigen Bürger in grüner Stadt

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wir lustigen Bürger in grüner Stadt 
rauschen und lärmen, 
singen und schwärmen 
rauschen und schwärmen, 
singen und lärmen
vom Morgen zum Abend, 
und stets sind wir satt !

Die Bäume mit Schatten 
zur Wohnung bestellt, 
zur Nahrung die Matten, 
die freie weite Welt.

Wir lustigen Bürger in grüner Stadt 
rauschen und lärmen, 
singen und schwärmen, 
rauschen und schwärmen, 
singen und lärmen, 
wie uns das gefällt !
O herrliche Welt, o Welt,
o freie, weite Welt,
o Welt, o herrliche Welt !
