'S ist doch närrisch, wenn wir eben nur...

Language: German (Deutsch)

'S ist doch närrisch, wenn wir eben nur vom Wein einmal genippt,
Daß der Hut so wunderbarlich gleich nach einer Seite kippt!
Doch das macht uns erst Courage; denn die Mädel, seht doch an,
Lachen, wo sie uns nur schauen, haben ihre Lust daran.
Ach, du allerschönstes Mädel mit den blauen Augen dort,
Blauer Montag ist ja heute, warum läufst du uns denn fort?
Blauer Montag, blauer Himmel, blaue Augen - liebster Schatz!
Was nur blau und lustig, hat ja heut in unserm Herzen Platz.
Zwar wir wackeln allzusammen, unser Liedel so wie wir,
Doch da können schlechte Schuster und Poeten nur dafür.
Denn wir gehen ganz gerade, nur die Stiefel gehen krumm,
Und wir singen wie die Lerchen, doch was ist das Liedel dumm!
Liedeldumm, Liedeldumm, Liedeldumm - - -!
