Ein Mägdlein trug man zur Tür hinaus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ein Mägdlein trug man zur Tür hinaus
Zu Grabe;
Die Bürger schauten zum Fenster heraus,
Sie saßen eben in Saus und Braus
Auf Gut und Habe.
Da dachten sie: Man trägt sie hinaus,
Trägt man uns nächstens auch hinaus,
Und wer denn endlich bleibt im Haus,
Hat Gut und schöne Gaben:
Es muß sie doch einer haben.
