Halte mir einer von euch Laffen mein...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Halte mir einer von euch Laffen mein Pferd,
Hole mir einer von euch Lumpen mein Schwert,
Ich liess es bei einer Dame liegen.  

Lasse einer von euch Schurken einen Falken fliegen;
Ich will ihm nachsehen und mich ins Blau verlieren;
Störe mich keiner von euch Tieren!
