Die Harmonie in der Ehe

Language: German (Deutsch) after the German (Deutsch)

O wunderbare harmonie,
was Er will, will auch Sie.
Er zechet gern, sie auch,
er spielet gern, sie auch,
er zählt Dukaten gern,
und machet den große Herrn,
auch das ist ihr Gebrauch.
O wunderbare harmonie!

Harmony in marriage

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Oh, wonderful harmony,
what he desires, she desires as well.
He enjoys a drink, she too,
he likes cards, she too,
He likes quick money,
and to act the big shot
and so does she.
Oh, wonderful harmony.
