Die Saiten weiß ich zu rühren

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die Saiten weiß ich zu rühren,
da behieltet ihr mich gern,
ihr möchtet mich exploitieren
guten Morgen, meine Herrn!
 
Ihr seid so nudelnüchtern,
ich bin euch ein pauvrer Wicht
zu  den hiesigen Gesichtern
passen meine Verse nicht.
Ich klagte sonst Adagio,
und begann Adagio;
Doch da sprach mir das Echo von: agio.
Und ich fluchte fortissimo,
daß Euch der Herrgott beschütze
vor jedem dummen Streich.
Und hol' mir für meine Mütze
Einen frischen Efeuzweig.
