Alle Vögel sind schon da

Language: German (Deutsch)

Alle Vögel sind schon da,
Alle Vögel, alle!
Welch ein Singen, [Musicir'n]1,
Pfeifen, Zwitschern, [Tirelir'n]2!
Frühling will nun einmarschir'n,
Kommt mit Sang und Schalle.

Wie sie alle lustig sind,
Flink und froh sich regen!
Amsel, Drossel, Fink und Star,
Und die ganze Vogelschaar
Wünschet uns ein frohes Jahr,
Lauter Heil und Segen.

Was sie uns verkündet nun,
Nehmen wir zu Herzen:
Wir auch wollen lustig sein,
Lustig wie die Vögelein,
Hier und dort, feldaus, feldein,
Singen, springen, scherzen.
