Auf den Berge Sinai

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf den Berge Sinai
Wohnt der Schneider Kikriki,
Knöppt'r seine Hosen auf,
Huppt ein großer Floh heraus.
Seine Frau, die alte Lerche,
Ließ e Förzchen in der Kerche,
Auf der großen, langen Bank
War e großer Forzgestank.
Kam der Pastor hergesprungen:
"Frau, Sie hab'n falsch gesungen."
Und der Kutscher auf dem Bock
Schiß vor Angst gleich in den Rock.
