Piccolo und Piccola

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Dienten beid in einer Schenke,
schleppten Bier und wischten Bänke.
Piccolo und Piccola.
  Schliefen beid in einer Kammer,
Kauten beid an einem Jammer,
Piccolo und Piccola.

  Hart das Lager, kalt der Winter,
Und zwei schöne Bettelkinder,
Piccolo und Piccola.

  Kinderpärchen! Liebespärchen! - 
Nur das Ende fehlt dem Märchen
Piccolo und Piccola.
