Von der Hummel

Language: German (Deutsch)

O Hummel, dicke Hummel,
Was fliegst du mit Gebrummel,
Was fliegst du mit Gebrummel
Im Garten hin und her;
Hm hm hm hm hm.
Sobald die Balsaminen
Und Astern nur erschienen,
Sobald sie nur erschienen
Säufst du sie alle leer;
Hm hm hm hm hm.
Du singest durch die Nase
Wie unsre alte Base,
So singst du durch die Nase,
Du kleiner Brummelbär,
Hm hm hm hm hm.
