Der neue Rattenfänger

Language: German (Deutsch)

Juchheisa! und ich führ den Zug
Hopp über Feld und Graben.
Des alten Plunders ist genug,
Wir wollen neuen haben.

Was! wir gering? Ihr vornehm, reich?
Planierend schwirrt die Schere,
Seid Lumps wie wir, so sind wir gleich,
Hübsch breit wird die Misere!

Das alte Lied, das spiel ich neu,
Da tanzen alle Leute,
Das ist die Vaterländerei,
O Herr, mach uns gescheute!
