Wann i in der Früh aufsteh

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wann i in der Früh aufsteh,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Und zu meiner Schwaigrin* geh,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Und da nim i glei mei Sichel
Und da gras' i mit mein Michel*,
Und da gras' ma in den Klee
Ei, ai, ei, a.

Schwaigrin, du bist mein Freud,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Wann i's Vieh auf d'Alma treib,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Und aft'n tun ma's Kuhla malcha*,
Und da krieg'n ma gute Kalma*,
Treib'n mirs abi zu den Stier
Ei, ai, ei, a.

Wann der Holda* blast ins Horn,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Treib'n ma's Kuhla von den Barn*
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Tun ma's Kuhla von den Barn*,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Tun ma's Kuhla abi streicha,
Und die Milli zamma seicha,
Aft'n treib'n mir's hin zum Bach, 
Ei, ai, ei, a.

Schwaigrin, bring den Sechta* her,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
's Kuhla gibt uns Milli mehr,
Ai, ei, ei, a,
Kann ma's Kuhla nimmer malcha,
Aft'n krieg'n ma gute Kalma,
's Kuhla gibt uns Milli mehr,
Ei, ai, ei, a.
