An ä Bergli bin i gesässe

Language: Swiss German (Schwizerdütsch) after the Swiss German (Schwizerdütsch)

An ä Bergli bin i gesässe,
Nach die Vögli hab i geschaut:
Han gesunge, han gepfiffe,
Han Nestli dran gebaut.

Auf ä Wiesli bin i gegange,
Nach die Imbli hab i geschaut:
Han gesummet, han gebrummet,
Han Zelli gebaut.

In ä Gärtli hab i gestanne,
Lugt die Schmetterlinge an;
Han gesoge, han gepfloge,
Gar zu schön hans getan.

Da kommt nu mei Hänsli, dem zeig i
Gar so froh, wie sie es mache,
Und mir lache, mir lache
Und machens a so.
