You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Mutter, Mutter! meine Puppe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Das Mädchen
 Mutter, Mutter! meine Puppe
    Hab ich in den Schlaf gewiegt,
 Gute Mutter, komm und siehe,
    Wie so englisch sie da liegt.

 Vater wies mich ab und sagte:
    "Geh, du bist ein dummes Kind";
 Du nur, Mutter, kannst begreifen,
    Welche meine Freuden sind.

 Wie du mit den kleinen Kindern,
    Will ich alles mit ihr tun,
 Und sie soll in ihrer Wiege
    Neben meinem Bette ruhn.

 Schläft sie, werd ich von ihr träumen,
    Schreit sie auf, erwach ich gleich, --
 Meine himmlisch gute Mutter,
    O wie bin ich doch so reich!
