Knecht Ruprecht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Draußen weht es bitterkalt,
Wer kommt da durch den Winterwald?
  Stipp - stapp, stipp - stapp und huckepack - 
  Knecht Ruprecht ist's mit seinem Sack. 
Was ist denn in dem Sacke drin? 
Äpfel, Mandeln und Rosin' 
  Und [schöne]1 Zuckerrosen, 
Auch [Pfeffernüss']2 für's gute Kind 
Die andern, die nicht artig sind, 
  [Die]3 klopft er auf die Hosen.
