Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?

Language: Swiss German (Schwizerd├╝tsch)

Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?
Das sell mer Öpper säge!
Er muess 'nes eiges Hüsli ha
Mit glänzige Schybe-n-und Meie dra,
E guete Schärme Tag und Nacht,
Im Sunneschyn und Räge.

Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?
Das sell mer Öpper säge!
Er muess-n-es subers Wybli ha,
Das hilft em 's Güetli zäme ha,
Es macht em öppe churzi Zyt
Und hilft em 's Ungfell träge.

Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?
Das sell mer Öpper säge!
'n-es Pärli Chinder, oder zweu,
Wo gsundi roti Bäckli hei,
Sie träge-n-eim e heitre Blick
Und Sunneschyn ergäge.

Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?
Das sell mer Öpper säge!
Ne subre Tisch und blangge Schild,
n'es härzhafts Wort, wo öppis gilt,
E-n-eigni Meinig öppenmol,
Wo d'Wohret ma verträge.

Was brucht e rächte Schwyzerma?
Das seil mer Öpper säge!
'n-es subers Gwehrli a der Wand,
'n-es heitern Lied fürs Vatterland,
Es offnigs Härz, e heitre Blick
Uf Wäge-n-und uf Stäge.
